In 2016, the founder of Lucky Saint, Luke, set out to revolutionise alcohol-free beer. His idea was simple: a classic, refreshing lager without the alcohol. To reward those who aren’t drinking with the beer they deserve.
After two years of searching across Europe, he found the brewmaster who could make it happen in a 400-year-old Bavarian brewery. Together, they brewed a beer using centuries-old brewing techniques, but with one crucial, untraditional twist: the beer was left unfiltered. Fresh, citrusy and hazy, it was an alcohol-free beer like none before.
They called it ‘Lucky Saint’, a nod to virtuosity and the luck derived from hard work. The next revolution in lager was here.

The story of Sipsmith began in 2009, in a tiny workshop in Hammersmith, which would become the first traditional copper distillery to open in London in just shy of 200 years. Two childhood friends, Fairfax and Sam, had an unwavering belief in things well made - the way they used to be and the way they should be.
Their mission was simple: to bring London Dry Gin of truly uncompromising quality and character, back to the city where it first earned its name. Lovingly made by hand in small batches, according to traditional techniques and with the highest-quality ingredients, Sipsmith’s craft gins are sublimely sippable spirits. After all, craft isn’t just a matter of style—you can taste it in the glass.
We are Alex Foss Sims (left) and Theo Garcia (right), and together we founded Solo.
We both met working as baristas. We got as nerdy as you can get about brewing, and after winning a national championship in coffee we decided to bottle our expertise. We started by flooding our parent’s kitchen, tweaking and perfecting the recipe until we were finally happy to release the finished product.
Speciality coffee is great. But it can get pretty complicated. For us, it felt that an outstanding cup of coffee is hard to come by. It’s easy enough to find a promising bag of coffee beans, but it then takes lots of skill to brew it to perfection, even at a good café the quality seems to be hit and miss. That’s when we decided to make it our mission to make great coffee more accessible.
The name comes from the Spanish “Café Solo”, directly translated as “just coffee” which is the name given to black coffee or espresso. We think there’s something powerful about doing one thing well. Simplifying, not complicating. We’re not interested in trying to do everything. We’ll focus on doing our one thing well, so our customers can focus on doing their one thing well.
Whilst we are hugely passionate about coffee itself, we feel our true love for coffee is found in its use and its effect. Coffee makes us focussed, dynamic and energetic. Characteristics that enable productivity and creativity. Modern coffee companies are notoriously non-inclusive. Lots of jargon. Lots of snobbery. Lots of facial hair. As a modern coffee company ourselves, we feel that it is our right to avoid talking varietals, altitudes and terroir. We don’t feel the need to celebrate just the coffee, we want to also celebrate what it allows us to do.

The Company is one of the oldest of the City guilds or livery companies. Its origins probably date back to the end of the twelfth century when it was known as the Guild of Our Lady and St. Thomas Becket. The earliest written reference to the existence of brewers as a body can be found in the City Letter Books where it is recorded that in 1292 London Brewers lodged a complaint against the Sheriffs. In 1406 the mistery of free Brewers successfully petitioned the Mayor and Aldermen for the right to appoint Masters and Wardens to control the trade. Henry V1 granted the Company the first of its charters on 22 February in the sixteenth year of his reign.
Until the twentieth century, many non-brewers were admitted to the Freedom of the Company. Often this was to enable those whose trade was not represented by a Livery Company to practise their craft within the City
Today, there are currently 56 brewing (or ex brewing) companies as members of the Brewers' Company.
