I really wanted to love Ghia! I got a box of the main Ghia aperitif and 4 cans, and absolutely loved the unboxing experience, packaging, and overall branding. They definitely provide everything needed to make a successful cocktail based off of their little recipe book etc, but for me, it just wasn't a great flavor. I'm always looking for healthier ways to sip and entertain, but unfortunately the flavor is lacking overall. Lovely company and branding though!
I wish the tonics had a better taste overall. My main issue with non-alcoholic aperitifs or drinks that are popping up now is that I feel like they try to replicate this interesting taste or "bite" of alcohol but end up kind of just tasting like..dirt? Unsure, but would love to give it another go in the future if they roll out more flavors!
Really flavorful and surprisingly complex non-alcoholic spritzer that's an upgrade from the classic "soda and bitters" order at the bar. Packaging is cute and while the cans are small, they're also just as good diluted with some soda water.
As someone who is always striving to drink less alcohol, Ghia has become a staple in my fridge, both the larger format bottles, and the canned spritzes. It's gotten to the point where if I go to a restaurant/bar and it's on the menu, I am ordering it and telling everyone there how amazing it is. The flavor is on point, and it's the only non-alc that actually mimics the feel of drinking the hard stuff.
absolutely loved the new lime and salt drop. like a virgin marg, delicious and refreshing, and the hint of ginger makes it 10x more interesting
a little expensive and too many calories
For some reason the packaging/branding made me think this would be a bit more savory, but it’s actually a gently-sweet aperitif-ish flavor that pairs as well with vodka as it does with soda water. I absolutely love the brand’s nod to a nostalgic Italian feel and the products are all delicious.
I think they could communicate the flavor itself better. The brand uses a lot of marketing words to capture the “vibe” but not a lot of flavor words. I found the single serve sodas to be a bit potent — I actually wound up using them with soda water.
I've been a Ghia fan for a cool minute riding the non-alcoholic drink wave. It's an acquired taste for sure with it's bitter herbs and extracts-forward flavor with background of Riesling grapes. I have tried both the Le Spritz cans and the tonic itself with mixers. For first timers, I definitely recommend a sweeter mixer, like a ginger beer or tonic water. The vibe and type-font is so utterly mod and I love that the creator is super friendly and cool.
Offer various sizes of the bottle
So yummy, so fun, a great alternative to alcohol that feels like just as much of a treat. Had a can last night and making a mocktail with the bottle tonight!
My only comment would be it is very expensive, but hey so is nice alcohol !
I love the fact that Ghia brings the flavor of an apéritif without the drawbacks of alcohol and presents it all in an aesthetically pleasing package!
Ghia has beautiful branding, and all of my coworkers love it (we have it in the work kitchen), but the flavor is just not for me. The actual flavor is not what bothers me, more just the back of the mouth heat I feel after actually drinking it. It is a little too botanical for me. But I'm sure it might taste good as a mixer for a mocktail!
The taste could be improved.
