Mindful March

We’re Helping You Practice Mindfulness at The Botanist this March

The new year is speeding by, so we’ve teamed up with Lyre’s this March to help us reflect and be mindful about the magic moments we create together.

The world has become a busy place and often we find ourselves rushing through life on auto-pilot, without paying attention to the special moments surrounding us, and as a result we disconnect with the present moment.

Here at The Botanist we already place a great emphasis on Kindness and this March, we want to bring awareness to the importance of practising mindfulness and how it can benefit your everyday life and those around you.

Lyre's Pop-Up at the Botanist

This March, we’ve partnered with non-alc brand Lyre’s to bring mindfulness to our corner in Kirribilli.

Whether you’re taking a break from booze or looking to be more conscious of what you drink, Lyre’s is the perfect solution. From ‘healthy’ cocktail specials to mindful tips, crafternoons and inspirational talks, keep reading to find out what’s happening this month.

Many years in the making, Lyre’s exquisite range of lovingly crafted non-alcoholic spirits was borne from a quest to make the impossible possible – giving the freedom to drink your drink, your way. Not just provide an alternative to those who don’t wish to imbibe alcohol, but ensure everyone can enjoy the mirth and merriment of a soiree or shindig.

With Lyre’s it’s up to you – replace some of the alcohol in your drink to make a low alcohol Lyre’s or make your classic favourites as a no-alcohol option simply by selecting from the many Lyre’s variants in our extensive range.

We craft our spirits to taste just like the classics they pay homage to. We source the finest all natural essences, extracts and distillates from the four corners of the globe.

At the risk of blowing our own bugle, this is quite simply the finest range of non-alcoholic classic spirits the world has ever seen.
