SkinnyBrands Lager - Gluten Free Beer / Low Calorie Lager

SkinnyBrands Ltd have done something quite amazing and everyone needs to hear about it. They have created a product so perfect for the Alcohol market and ticks boxes never ticked before.

This is a leap of faith from such a new product entering the market but the guys heading up SkinnyBrands Ltd are determined to offer the UK consumers a healthier alternative that people will actually want to drink.

Low Sugar Beer

The consumers want a low sugar product they can enjoy and SkinnyBrands ticks that box. This is the lowest sugar Lager available in the EU. Certainly not going to be cuaght up in the sugar tax.

Low Carb Beer

The consumers want a low carb lager, but doesnt taste week and tastes like a normal beer. With the filtration system they use and the recipe they have the Lager tastes just like a normal beer but has only 20% of the carbs of a Peroni. Amazing!

Gluten Free Beer

There is a huge cohort of the global consumers that love a beer but also striclty follow the Gluten free diet for health benifits and for allergy issues. This Gluten Free Lager ticks that box too.

Vegan Friendly Beer

Another cohort are the Vegan Members, you guessed it this is also a Vegan Friendly Beer. On top of everything else SkinnyBrands is appealing to the Vegan principles followed by millions world wide.

WeightWatchers

This Lager is also regsitered with the WeightWatchers Dieting Group at 3 points per bottle, and is 1 whole point lower than a Coors Light. Now on a night out that means you can have 1 extra beer when drinking 4 bottles. We should all drink responsibly but 4 bottles is easy to get through.

Slimming World

This Lager is not registered with slimming world as they dont want to advertised a full strength % product. But we are featured on their product list which is coming in a full Syn lower than Coors Light. What is not to love about that.

Calories in Wine - The Skinny Revolution

There really is a Skinny revolution in all corners of the consumer market and SkinnyBooze was the first to do it in alcohol. Now our sister company SkinnyBrands is the first to ever brand alcohol as Skinny in the EU.

But remember our philosophy - If its not full strength we don't want it and neither do you.

How many calories are in your wine is our problem, and it shouldn't be yours. It is exactly what we specialise in because the amount of Calories in alcohol is a problem. It has been and always will be until there is a change in the industry. Calories in wine has been waiting for a change and we are that change - we are starting the Skinny revolution.

We believe in the change in the UK from full calorie alcohol to a place where there is at least an option for low calorie alcoholic drinks.

A recent report on Calories in Wine showed that 85% of the UK population didn't know how many Calories were in their wine and 90% of those who got it wrong underestimated the amount of Calories.

Calories in Alcohol as a broad category needs to change and SkinnyBooze & SkinnyBrands will be fronting the campaign to get Calories in labels through the governmental guidance. Trading standards understands the issues with Calories in alcohol and we want them on board with us.

Please keep your eyes open for our campaign as we will really love to have all your support.

Regards - SkinnyBooze Ltd

Low Calorie Alcohol - The Difference Made Clear

We have been asked the same questions at SkinnyBooze HQ for the past 5 years and the education process is still on going in the difference between the Low Calorie Alcohol we stock and the generic products out there in the market.

Sugar plays the largest part in the calorie reduction for our brands, as we search and test for this as a main priority. Residual sugar is sugar in its simplest form in the liquid. It hasn't been turned into alcohol and isn't necessarily adding to the flavours of the wine. Relatively easy to extract without compromising the quality of the wine and imperative to calorie reduction.

Alcohol in its purest form caries 7 Calories per gram and fat has 9 calories per gram with sugar carrying 4-5 calories per gram.

Wine and Beer generally has a relatively low Fat content and the alcohol percentage in our brands will never change from the norm so this has to be discounted in a search. So we need brands that are organic, low sulphur and low sugar.

That's what we stock Low Sugar Alcohol & Low Sulphur Alcohol is our speciality and that's what we want to bring you all more of. The Low Calorie Wine we stock all has very little sugar and some even as low as 1.8 grams per 100ml which is as high as a 70% reduction over normal products.

The favourite Low Calorie Red Wine in our portfolio is the Organic Chianti, but it isn't just Organic, the sulphur and residual sugar levels are the lowest in the Red Wine range. ONLY 89 Calorie per glass

The favourite Low Calorie White Wine in our portfolio is the Roche Mazet Sauvignon Blanc. With residual sugar levels at the lowest in all the wines we have available at 1.06grams per 100ml.
ONLY 72 Calorie per glass
When bubbles are your thing but Calories aren't there really is nowhere better to turn. the winner in multiple blind taste tests against leading prosecco and sparkling wine ranges the Castel Brut Cuvee and its sister Rose are just Perfect.

Never before seen we are now stocking SkinnyBrands products and their first addition is SkinnyBrands Lager - the lowest and tastiest Lower Calorie Lager available in the world. Better than all Light Lager brands we tested in a cohort of over 1000 people.
We are forever expanding and adding new incredible products so keep your eyes open for the new brands coming soon.

Calories in Wine

Calories in wine

From the outset, it needs to be firmly established that despite your enjoyment of a fantastic wine, there are indeed calories in wine and some more than others. For a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet we need to seriously consider the calories in our drinks.

This is not all negative as calories should be thought of as fuel for the body and as your body finds it impossible to function without an adequate supply of fuel – wine might be incorporated into your diet occasionally without guilt.

Quantity counts

It’s very difficult to put calorie averages into wine as there is such a huge variation in Calories from all the different regions, growers, vines, grape colours etc. As a general rule of thumb, there are roughly around 115 calories in a small-sized glass of white wine, and 120 in a small glass of red wine (125mls). This then means that in an average bottle of wine bought from the supermarket, there are in the region of six glasses of wine contained within it which all add up if you go on to drink the bottle. That all equates to 690 calories in a bottle of white wine & 720 in a bottle of red wine.

 

There are novelty wine glasses to be had today in the supermarkets that can hold a whole bottle of wine, but as quantity does count, it is essential to think about the size of your glass when going onto count the calories in wine.

Calories in wines are the same

The calories in Pinot Grigio is generally lower due to the natural dryness of the wines with a low sugar level. Sauvignon Blanc is next on our scale for similar reasons with Chardonnay coming third in natural calorie saving.  Calories in Sparkling wine and Calories in Champagne are totally dependent on the acidity and the residual sugar levels but generally contain around 100 calories per 125 ml glass.

A diet including wine


Having recognised the reality of there being calories in wine it is imperative to count them into your weekly dietary ingestion if you take pleasure in a glass of wine or two on a night out or with a meal. Still, it is also sensible to keep the number of calories that you drink with any beverage in clear perspective.  That’s where we come in at SkinnyBooze Ltd. We save a minimum of 30% on Calories on every product and some even stretching to a 55% reduction, and all products importantly maintain the ABV volume as normal.

We have a wide range of options for you with more and more coming soon and even bringing new lines in for cocktails and spirits. Low Calorie Wine, Low Calorie Beer, Low Calorie Champagne, Low Calorie Gin everything you could want under 1 roof. Delivered to your door in 48 hours.

Lowest Calorie Alcohol

Trying to find the Lowest Calorie Alcohol?

Low Calorie Drinks such as beer and wine have been extensively accessible worldwide for over 10 years, but strangely enough not in the UK and Northern Europe. Why is this? Well we are slow at innovating and accepting new products into the market place. We aren’t one for change or trying new things in these areas.

Until Now!

Times have changed in the last 4 years in the UK. SkinnyBooze has been created by an innovative and forward thinking individual. Realising that there is a need for such a product and an education to the masses of the benefits of such products – Tom Bell (Founder) stepped up. He has changed the way we think of Calories in Alcohol and where we can find healthier options. Even better news is that research shows that regular drinkers more often than not can not even tell the difference between low calorie beer and wine against the normal option throughout the range that we stock.

It is common now for people who want to decrease the amount of calories that they are drinking, looking more and more into low calorie options to see if they are good alternatives from their normal alcoholic drinks. This is roughly 25% growth year on year.

 

Where to find the perfect alternatives?

There is a wide variety of different categories of low calorie alcoholic drinks available, and you can get them right here at SkinnyBooze Ltd. They come in all your usual assortment of choices, Wine, Beer, Gin, Champagne and more to come soon

There are no cast-iron rules with the lowest calorie alcohol that you choose to drink, meaning that you can drink your usual drink, it is now just possible to find it in a ‘diet friendly’ version. Remember the total calorie count of what is in your glass can contrast significantly depending on what else is going to be put into your drink-of-choice.

 

What to choose

The best news is that the Low Calorie Beer, Wine, Champagne and Spirits we have all have the same ABV % than a normal product. We know this hasn’t been the case for a huge amount of products previously available.

We are just thrilled that you are starting to think about Calories now in Alcohol and actively looking for a new option and we are even more happy to provide you with the best alternative we can find.

 

Tasting low calorie

The subject of taste is absolutely the most important as you decide upon your drink hopefully because you enjoy it. The largest number of drinkers are sceptical of the thought of Low Calorie mainly because they haven’t tried the right option. It is absolutely correct there are a lot of poor options out there but that is not what we do. We cater for those who are interested in a perfect product that just sp happens to be Low in Calories.

We would love you to try our products out.

Thank you for time

The Corona Light is refreshing for those Summer days I would like a beer and the Organic Chianti is just incredible with any red meat.
Thanks to you i don't have to worry about Calories in my drinks again.
Thank You so much for helping me out.
Best Wishes
