Your mate just ordered a Strongbow at the bar – but you know the brand’s cider is not vegan.

You can’t get certain beers or most wines either; and you’re getting really bored with the usual Heineken – so what’s left? 

When in doubt, check Barnivore – an online database with over 30,000 alcoholic beverages that will aid you in the quest to find vegan booze.

1. Amaretto

Although Amaretto is known to use an infusion of the Amaretti cookies, and its original recipe included egg whites and honey, most Ameretto brands are actually vegan-friendly.

Brands such as Lazzaroni, Disaronno, and Maraschino all offer Amaretto that is suitable for vegans.

2. Old Mout Kiwi and Lime

You might be surprised to learn that many of the brand’s ciders are vegan! 

Although some of Old Mout’s drinks contain cochineal, Passionfruit & Apple is also vegan-friendly.

3. Amstel

Amstel’s entire range of lagers and radlers are vegan-friendly, with no animal-based process aids used in the brewing process.

Amstel, which is a Heineken-owned brewery brand, offers Amstel Lager, Amstel Light, and Amstel Radler.

4. Frog’s Leap

Frog’s Leap has several vegan wines on offer, including the Red Wine, Pink, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay.

5. Pimm’s

Fruit liqueur favorite Pimm’s is fully vegan. Pimm’s Blackberry & Elderflower, No. 1 Cup, and Winter are all ethically-sourced and suitable for vegans.
