Beckett's '27 Non-Alcoholic Amaretto


About Beckett's '27 N/A Amaretto

For a while now, I’ve been very intrigued with the increasing number of non-alcoholic spirit brands on the market. The concept often leaves people with a lot of questions, and for me, seeking those answers has been on the back burner until now. But, with “dry January” just around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time to try out a non-alcoholic bottle for myself!

Beckett’s ’27 Non-Alcoholic Amaretto is produced by Beckett’s Non Alcoholic Cocktails & Spirits – a California-based company that produces a variety of zero proof spirits and ready-made cocktails.

This particular bottle of ’27 N/A Amaretto is made using an unspecified blend of botanical and aromatic terpenes. Other notable ingredients listed on the label include natural flavors, cane sugar, caramel color, and Reb M Stevia (amongst other ingredients that I’m sure do fun science-y things to the mixture). This bottle is also advertised as vegan and gluten-free.

My Tasting notes

I took a whiff of this spirit, and the classic nutty amaretto scent was present, but struck me as notably different. Although it was a pleasant aroma, it felt almost dulled or muted by the lack of air from the usual alcohol presence.

I took my first sip, and found prominent notes of stevia sweetener. After several sips, subtle notes of almond, cherry, and citrus were present as well.


Virgin Amaretto Sour

  • 2oz non-alcoholic amaretto liqueur
  • 1oz lemon juice
  • 0.75oz simple syrup
  • garnish: maraschino cherry


  1. Add the ingredients to a shaker with ice, and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain the mixture into a glass.
  3. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

Inside of a mocktail, this Amaretto was nice enough, but underwhelming flavor-wise. The lemon juice was the most prominent flavor coming through, which made the overall drink tart and unbalanced. I did get more of the nutty amaretto flavor towards the end of the drink, which I initially blamed on me stopping to take pictures of my drink, and forgetting to stir it afterwards. However, the next day I made this same mocktail for a friend and served it immediately after pouring, and they expressed that the flavor in theirs also sank to the bottom.

Bottom Line


Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed with this bottle of Beckett’s ’27 Non-Alcoholic Amaretto. Although I was excited to try my first non-alcoholic spirit, I found the lack of strong flavor in this bottle to be a bit odd. I don’t think the lack of alcohol should limit their ability to create a flavorful product. Regular amaretto is typically a mixing spirit, so it’s reasonable to expect this to hold its own inside of a mocktail without altering the recipe too much.

What’s more, I didn’t love the fact that Beckett’s sank to the bottom of the mocktail immediately. I feel that this severely limits it’s potential for mixing, and it almost feels like they need to go back to the drawing board. At this time, I wouldn’t feel comfortable recommending this particular bottle to a friend.

As always, drink responsibly.
