ALAVIE literally means “Cheers to Life” in French!
It’s short and simple and perfectly translates our philosophy of life, our JOIE DE VIVRE that directly inspired ALAVIE.
JOIE DE VIVRE is a perspective on life - It’s about making a conscious decision to be present in and appreciate the moment. It’s enjoying the simple things of life. It is a French expression that sometimes is used to describe the essence of the French lifestyle.
Apéritif is a French word that describes a moment you share with friends and/or family around a drink. It is very convivial and invites you to enjoy being together.
Everyone!! ALAVIE is 100% natural (and we don’t use preservatives), with no sugar, zero calories and with no alcohol (0.0% alc/vol).
Pregnant women as well as people with diabetes can drink ALAVIE.
We always recommend that you consult a healthcare professional if you have any doubts or questions regarding your consumption of ALAVIE.
ALAVIE is an artisan drink made in France, only with 100% natural premium ingredients and a unique savoir-faire, similar to the distillation used in French perfumes. That’s why you’ll experience several notes throughout sipping your drink (top notes, middle notes and base notes).
ALAVIE does not try to mimic anything you know. It does not taste at all like champagne or sparkling wine. We use distillates and natural extracts of herbs, fruits, flowers and spices that will reveal all their nuances in a sophisticated taste.
We offer 3 different variants to satisfy all tastes:
- Gentle bitter notes if you like bitterness (but it is still gently bitter)
- Fruity notes for those who prefer a sweeter taste
- Woody notes for those who like a bit more richness and warmth
Yes. ALAVIE is sparkling and we put a lot of attention to offer you very elegant fine bubbles. The size of the bubbles does matter to enhance all the notes from our complex blends.
There’s always a good time to drink ALAVIE!
For the aperitif hour of course but it is also the perfect healthy bubbly for a special breakfast, indulgent brunch, lunchtime treat, afternoon socializing, till late in the night.
ALAVIE is inviting you to celebrate all the everyday moments and the people that are dear to you, anytime and anywhere, with no compromise on health or taste.
Our drinks have very pure and elegant translucent colors (golden, rosé and amber). They are best to be served in “coupes” or cocktail glasses so you can best appreciate their crafted blends of sophisticated notes.
You are welcome to garnish them with fresh herbs, fruits and edible flowers if you like.
ALAVIE can be drunk as is for those who wish to enjoy its taste with zero calories.
Of course if you would like to mix it and be creative, we would love to hear about your creations! That’s why ALAVIE is such a convivial drink, everyone will enjoy it!
Depending on the type of glass you are using, you will be able to serve between 4 and 6 glasses per bottle.
You can store ALAVIE at room temperature but yes you must serve it very fresh! You’d better keep it in your refrigerator !
Like for any sparkling, it is better to drink ALAVIE rapidly. Please keep it refrigerated after opening.
ALAVIE is 100% made in France and all our partners are highly respected and renowned experts in their fields to ensure we offer you the best quality.
We wanted Alavie to be bubbly and in a bottle of Champagne, so that the symbol and ritual of celebration (like popping the cork) remains. This also roots ALAVIE into our French provenance.

We did not want any additives or anything not natural so we don’t have any preservatives in ALAVIE. We use pasteurization instead.
Pasteurization is a natural heat-treatment process we have chosen to preserve ALAVIE so that it is stable and safe to drink. Thanks to this technique we have been able to remove all additives and the usual preservatives you find in other drinks like potassium sorbate or citric acid.
Sustainability is at our core. We are not perfect but trying our best at our level and paying attention to all the details, from our carbon footprint negative cork, to our glass bottle 20% lighter than traditional champagne bottles to reduce CO2 emissions, to our recycled labels etc…
We have carefully selected our bottle. Glass was our preferred choice as it can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity.
We have explored many options before finding our bottle that is approximately 20% lighter, to decrease CO2 emissions.
Our labels are made from 100% recycled paper and they are FSC certified. That’s why the paper is not glossy perfect but we prefer them like that, it gives them character, a bit like what you’ll find inside our bottles!
Yes. We have carefully selected every single part of our packaging with sustainability being at our core.
Our corks for instance are carbon footprint negative because we don’t have to kill the tree for the harvest. Cork comes from the bark of the cork oak. The first harvest is usually done around 40 years after planting the tree. The “démasclage” (artisanal extraction) is done every 9-12 years, without compromising the tree's life cycle.
We are very proud to offer you a new generation of foil, produced with bio-based polyethylene made from sugar cane and water-based ink, some renewable resources that replace oil and solvents used for standard capsules.
Sugar cane plants absorb carbonic gas during their growth cycle helping to reduce CO2 emissions. Our supplier carefully selects sustainable cultivable areas for sugar cane.
Water based ink is a renewable resource that reduces pure solvent consumption.
