Japan's finest sparkling malt & hops beverage from the maker of Yamazaki® and Hibiki® whiskies now available for home delivery in the U.S.
TOKYO, Japan (August 13, 2020) — Suntory, renowned Japanese distiller and brewer, is proud to announce that its delicious *alcohol-free beer-like beverage, ALL-FREE, is now available in the U.S., a perfect summertime refreshment.
For more than 50 years, Suntory has been brewing authentic beer in a world-class Tokyo-Musashino brewery, the heart of Suntory’s brewing legacy since its opening in 1963. By combining modern technology with decades of brewing experience, the brand has created a crisp, light and refreshing beverage with zero calories and 0.00% alcohol, perfectly complementing an active and social lifestyle.
“The concept of ALL-FREE was born from the deep desire to bring joy to consumers and change the perception that an active lifestyle and a delicious beer were incompatible,” says Yuichi Kato, the head of product development of ALL-FREE at Suntory Beer Ltd. “We pride ourselves on innovation and we explored more than 400 formulas before finding the perfect recipe for ALL-FREE. With the ideal balance between a refreshing aroma and crisp, light, satisfying flavor, we are so proud to introduce Japan’s favorite sparkling malt & hops beverage to the U.S. market and give American consumers a beer-like experience with zero calories and 0.00% alcohol.”
Using select ingredients and zero artificial flavors or sweeteners, this exceptional, guilt-free beverage delivers on taste without shortcomings. Just like traditional beer, Suntory uses only the two-row barley malt which contributes to the rich flavor of ALL-FREE, while the aroma hops give it its bitterness and signature sophisticated bouquet. ALL-FREE is also made with 100% Tennensui water—Quality, natural mineral water blessed from the Japanese forests—bringing to life ALL-FREE’s unparalleled flavor. In addition to these ingredients, carefully selected natural flavors allow ALL-FREE to mirror the taste of real beer. This original recipe enables the removal of the fermentation process entirely and delivers a specialty beer-like beverage with zero calories and 0.00% alcohol.
Suntory ALL-FREE, sparkling malt & hops beverage will be available via Amazon.com (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08BVHRPYV), as well as select retailers nationwide like Total Wine & More, BevMo! stores in California and Arizona and select Ralphs stores in the greater LA area.
