Caleño is the perfect alternative to a G&T over the Festivities!

Caleño! A gin-inspired, non-alcoholic free spirit discovered amongst the fiestas, the flow, flamboyance and frenzy under the Colombian sun!

the Story

Caleño was born out of personal frustration. Founder Ellie was on an alcohol-free night out with friends, getting down to some Latin funk. But something was bugging her. Why should not drinking mean not having fun? She felt uninspired by the non-alcoholic drinks on offer and decided it was time to bring some joy to not drinking.


Caleño first came to life in Ellie’s kitchen, but it was 5,000 miles later on a trip back to Colombia when she felt re-inspired by her Latin roots. After soaking up the vibrant colours, tropical flavours, and Latin beats of her family’s homeland, she returned home to bottle it.


Fuelled by that Latin positivity, Ellie set out to infuse the sun-drenched flavours of Colombia with her non-alcoholic spirits. The result? Caleño. Non-alcoholic spirits, for anyone, anytime, anywhere!

Caleño Light & Zesty


A lively blend of Inca berry, pineapple, papaya, coriander, juniper berry, green cardamom & lemon peel

A Distilled Light and Zesty infusion of tropical, citrus and spice botanicals, featuring their iconic golden Inca Berry (also known as a Cape Gooseberry) Over 10 botanicals and joyfully distilled harnessing tropical, zingy, light and zesty flavours from within.


Distilled with joy!

The distillation process is a thing of joy. The team hunt down the tastiest tropical ingredients and spices before distilling and blending the unique flavours inside modern stainless-steel drums. They distil for 48 hours extracting the zingy, zesty and spicy exotic flavours, and by day two everything smells incredible. This joyful distillation is then left to mature for another two weeks before they bottle and bring along to our next fiesta!

200ml Indian Tonic Water
