This May, Lyre’s, the leading and award-winning non-alcoholic drinks company, will be delivering one of the most innovative drink launches of the year, Highland Malt – Australia’s first non-alcoholic whisky-style beverage.

Lyre’s Non-Alcoholic Highland Malt captures the essence of a blended malt whisky, one of the world’s most revered spirits, with flavours that are distinct and contemporary. To be enjoyed in a highball, shaken in a sour or simply on the rocks.

With an inviting light honey hue, Highland Malt leads with a soft earthiness and bouquet, featuring light grain cereal, stone fruit and almond to round out every sip. The subtle additions of sea spray and lightly charred oak further add to the complexity. A lovely and rewarding depth in flavour can be found with a natural influence of seasoned oak, nutty grain, and warm spices. In addition, the welcoming smoke contributes lift to the soft palate.

The Highland Malt has been meticulously created by Lyre’s flavour architect, David Murphy.

He says: While Lyre’s spirits are true to taste, they have their own distinction as a premium non-alcoholic beverage, and therefore understanding the popularity of whisky we wanted to deliver the same delicious taste but with a difference. Whether served neat or in mixers, whisky is a firm favourite for many around the world and understanding this, we’ve worked tirelessly to study the aromas and tastes that whisky fans most enjoy, to deliver the Highland Malt.”

The 700mL bottle will be available from mid-May 2022, at, Dan Murphy’s and liquor retailers.
