beClink is America’s largest online shop for non-alcoholic, alcohol-free, never alcoholized wines, spirits, and mixers. Our products are for anyone looking to reduce or eliminate their alcohol consumption without sacrificing flavor, sophistication, and sociability.
We offer a carefully curated selection of alcohol-free, non-alcoholic, and never-alcoholized beverages from around the world. We’re always on the search to find amazing new products. If you have a suggestion, please email us!
Our portfolio contains a mixture of no alcohol (0.0%), low alcohol (<0.5%), and never alcoholized beverages. Every product listed on our website is considered non-alcoholic, which means it contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume.
Dealcoholized beverages are first fermented and later have the alcohol removed. This is why the resulting, non-alcoholic product has interesting, complex flavors, but without the negatives associated with alcohol.
The producers of all the products offered on our website have done an amazing job capturing the aromas, flavors, and textures of their alcoholic counterparts. However, alcohol has a very distinct flavor so you won’t find an identical alternative. That being said, if you’re looking for a high quality beverage in situations where juice and soda just won’t do, you’ve come to the right place.
We recommend consulting with a medical professional. Most of our products contain at most 0.5% alcohol volume, therefore, safe for most to drink, each situation is unique!

Alcohol is removed in the production stage using one of three different processes at cool temperatures to avoid damaging the wines. All the wines are ordinary alcoholic wines up to this point, so all the original characteristics are retained.
Steam Vacuum – The vaporization temperature of alcohol is lower than that of other liquids so, under normal circumstances, it would be necessary to boil wine at high temperatures to steam off the alcohol so damaging the delicate flavors. This process is done in a vacuum where vaporization can be achieved at much lower temperatures. The wine therefore looses its alcohol but retains the characteristics and flavors that would be lost with normal boiling.
Reverse Osmosis – forces the wine through a membrane (filter) to separate the alcohol from the rest of the wine.
Centrifugal Force – is used in some de-alcoholized wines to ‘throw’ the alcohol away from the wine through filters. This has to be repeated many times to reduce the alcohol molecules.
Halted Fermentation – This system is more commonly used in beers. The mash is mixed and left to brew. The process is halted at the point just before the product reaches an alcoholic content of more than 0.0%.
Most of the wines that we sell are Halal certified. To see a list of our Halal Certified wines, click here. But what does Halal Certified mean?
The word ‘Halal’ (حلال) is an Arabic word which literally means permissible. And in translation it is usually used as lawful/allowed/acceptable and it’s a term which is applied to all aspects of life and covers not only food and drink, but also all matters of daily life.
When used in relation to food or drink, it means that the food/drink is lawful, allowed or permissible for Muslims, which guarantees to consumers that the wine contains no forbidden components, like alcohol.
All Halal certified wines contain 0.0% alcohol by volume.
Halal certificates are issued, for a fee, by a certifying body. For our wines, the organization is The Halal Institute.
Based on the researchers led by Gemma Chiva-Blanch of the University of Barcelona, yes.
METHODOLOGY: Researchers at the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona instructed 67 men to drink either 10 ounces of red wine, 10 ounces of non-alcoholic red wine, or 3 ounces of gin every day for four weeks. At the end of the four weeks, each subject rotated to a different drink and repeated the process before switching again such that by the end of the study, all 67 men had been observed consuming all three drinks. Each study participant had either diabetes or at least three of the following risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, a family history of heart disease, excessive weight or obesity, or smoking.
RESULTS: The non-alcoholic red wine was associated with a significant decrease in blood pressure, lowering heart disease risk by 14 percent and the risk of stroke by 20 percent. The alcoholic red wine, however, did not appear to have such effects.
CONCLUSION: Even though alcoholic and non-alcoholic red wine contain the same amount of heart-healthy antioxidants, the alcohol may be blocking the polyphenols from doing their protective work. Non-alcoholic red wine may therefore be more effective at protecting the heart.
IMPLICATION: Pairing antioxidants with alcohol appears counterproductive. If you were drinking red wine for the cardiovascular benefits, consider switching to non-alcoholic wine, or any of the multitude of other ways to get antioxidants.

Resveratrol is kept in most of the dehalcoholized wine carry since the European wineries we represent use vacuum distillation, which preserves the original proprieties of wine without the need of adding harmful additives.
