The innovation by brands in the non-alcoholic and functional beverage category is impressive, and provides a variety of ways to socialize without alcohol but still enjoy a flavorful, stylish craft beverage.

 

As a retail and commerce technology veteran, I launched Sèchey, an online store with a curated selection of alcohol-free and functional alternative libations, for Lowcountry locals. Sèchey is the first stockist in Charleston of cult non-alcoholic brands, includingKin Euphorics,Ghia,FigliaandGrüvi.

 

The inspiration for the brand name comes from the French word for dry, sèche, and invites everyone to experience our selection. We are responding to an evolving cocktail culture and the at-home bar movement from the pandemic, where our customers are exploring sobriety, healthy lifestyles and more mindful drinking. The innovation by brands in the non-alcoholic and functional beverage category is impressive, and provides a variety of ways to socialize without alcohol but still enjoy a flavorful, stylish craft beverage.

 

A physical bottle shop, warehouse and tasting room will open in early 2022 in downtown Charleston.

 

The assortment includes a connection to Charleston artistChambers Austelle,who designs the label art for female founded non-alcoholic beer, Busty Lush. She’s Golden sold out via pre-order prior to the site launch and She’s Passionate will be available on the shelves at Sèchey in mid-October. Sèchey also has the last few available bottles of nationally sold outBonbuz.

 

Sèchey’s 100% alcohol free alternative libations can be found online atsechey.com,and can be shipped nationally or delivered free locally to the Charleston metro area. A physical bottle shop, warehouse and tasting room will open in early 2022 in downtown Charleston.
