Frequently Asked Questions

What is Dry Wit?  We make non-alcoholic drinks for the wine occasion from botanicals and juice. Our process creates a product that is innovative and unique, utilizing techniques and ingredients that leverage tannins, salinity, acidity, carbonation, body, and mouthfeel to play with a meal. We recommend you enjoy with good food and even better company.

Is Dry Wit wine?  Not really, but sort of! We found we weren’t enamored with wine that has had its alcohol removed, like it was always missing something and contains traces of alcohol. So we charted a new path, building something unique and innovative from the ground up. Some folks call us a wine alternative, a temperance pairing, a wine alt, or a wine proxy.

Where can I buy Dry Wit?  You can find  our current list of stockists here.  If you don’t see your favorite place, help us connect!  We distribute throughout the Twin Cities metro area and are always looking for new retail and restaurant partners.

How do I contact you?  We would love to hear from you! You can fill out the form on our Contact Us page, or send an email to hello@drywit.com.

Do you ship Dry Wit? Unfortunately we don’t ship our products at this time. We are working with a vendor who might be able to ship our products, but we aren’t online with them yet. An announcement will come from our social media pages first.

How do I serve Dry Wit? We recommend serving Dry Wit chilled in stemmed wine glasses, but ultimately any glass is great too. The carbonation we employ to move flavor around your palate really prefers a chill, so put it in the fridge the day before you serve a bottle. Simultaneously, we like to enjoy a bottle as it warms up and the carbonation diminishes. Similar to how a wine breathes, Dry Wit likes to evolve over a longer meal. But really, there’s no wrong way to enjoy.

How do I store my bottles? Our products are shelf stable, but we recommend you store them in the fridge if you plan on drinking them soon just to keep them cold. Once open, you can reseal them with a sparkling wine stopper and keep them in the fridge. If you catch us at a tasting, we usually have some stoppers to share with you for free.

Is Dry Wit vegan or gluten free?  We currently produce in a shared kitchen and some of the other producers use flour, but we don’t use ingredients that are animal related or that contain gluten at any stage in production.

Is Dry Wit safe for pregnancy? That’s a nuanced question! Our ingredients are highly regarded as safe and, in most cases, quite common food ingredients. We found that many of the products out there are either classified as having less than .5% alcohol, or have “functional” ingredients that aren’t advisable during pregnancy. We even found warnings about bittering herbs and spices. So we avoided all of that and made a clean ingredient list that is easy to investigate. All that being said, we always recommend you check with your health provider for further clarification.

How many calories are in a glass of Dry Wit? It depends on the exact flavor, but between 10-15 calories a glass. We don’t add any sugar, so all the calories come from the juice we add.
