A hotel in Munich, Germany, recently began serving a non-alcoholic sparkling wine that can be consumed by practicing Muslims. Islamic law forbids the consumption of alcohol, meaning practicing Muslims are often left to consume soft drinks or water during festive events. Now the Four Seasons Hotel in Munich is offering an alcohol-free wine for Muslim guests to enjoy.
The non-alcoholic wine is called 'Dinar' and it is the world's first halal sparkling wine. In order to mimic the taste of alcohol, the manufacturer Vigorous Trading uses the juice from dates and pomegranates. These ingredients produce a tangy and slightly sweet flavor that closely resembles that of real wine. The drink is largely designed for the hotel's Muslim clientele who frequent the city during the summer months.
With a growing number of Muslim consumers looking for halal products, this non-alcoholic sparkling wine is a perfect beverage option.
