You walk into a bar. The choice
of drinks is staggering.

Or is it?

Basically, it’s booze, fruit juice or flavoured water. Endless variations on a tired and limited theme.

Is that really the best we can do? What about those decades of scientific advances in food technology?

Seriously, isn’t it time we came up with something beyond ethanol?


Well, that’s the mission we set for our pioneering team of scientists. They are developing new beverage ingredients that take us beyond ethanol.

Our mission is to enable Drinks Companies to offer better choices to adult social drinkers. We have made good progress with our first series of ingredients known as “Alcarelle”, and there is still much work ahead of us.

With your feedback and help, GABA Labs is determined to transform adult drinking choices. Globally.

Now wouldn’t that be a result worth celebrating next time you walk into a bar? Cheers!
