What is ArKay?

ArKay Beverages is the world’s first non-alcoholic liquor flavoured drink collection, that gives you all the alcoholic kick, with none of the next-day sick.

Non Pharmaceutical Alcoholism Treatment Program  Arkay is not a medicine

ArKay Beverages announces the launch of a new liquor collection with zero alcohol, not made from distillation or fermentation and without the side effects of alcohol.

This alcohol replacement is a unique and innovative drink for consumers world-wide looking for an alcohol-free liquor alternative with placebo effect.


ArKay contains a small molecule which sends stimuli to the brain when it makes contact with your tongue. The illusion operates, and the mucous membranes of smell and taste saturate and thus mimics the experience of drinking alcohol.

But there is no drunkenness, no adverse effects. This is the advantage of ArKay. It reproduces the taste of the liquor but none of the negative effects of the alcohol.

ArKay non-alcoholic liquors are for EVERYONE and can be enjoyed ANY TIME, ANYWHERE!

ArKay can be consumed all night long without any intoxicating effects, and it contains 0% Alcohol, 0% Calories, 0% Carbs 0% Sugar, 0% sweetener. It is gluten-free, and vegan friendly.

Individuals with medical conditions or religious beliefs that prohibit the consumption of alcohol can enjoy the crisp, refreshing taste of ArKay non-alcoholic liquors!

At cocktail parties, designated drivers, teetotalers and pregnant women often are limited to drinking soda, water or juice – options that can become incredibly monotonous. A new beverage in the market is about to shake things up and open a world of possibilities, giving everyone a chance to enjoy all the flavour of whisky with none of the alcohol, calories, sugar or sodium.


Straight-up, “on-the-rocks” or with your favorite mixer, any way is a good way to ARKAY!

How Was ArKay Invented?

ArKay began as a product line of whisky-flavoured beverages that are 100% free of alcohol. Though only recently introduced, demand for the beverage has generated sales throughout the world, and the company is building on current successes by introducing new lines of vodka, rum, gin and tequila, which may taste like the real deal, but are totally free of alcohol.

Grattagliano was inspired to produce the drinks following an episode with his 22 year-old son, who upon returning home from a party where there was ample imbibing, began to feel those certain unappealing after-effects. “He suggested that someone should create a whisky that doesn’t leave you feeling so hung-over,” explains Grattagliano.

The son, of course, didn’t realise that suggestion would compel his father to not only spend the next five years of his life researching such a method, but he would spend five million dollars to make it happen.

Though Grattagliano doesn’t have a background in beverage development, he certainly understands chemistry, as well as how to combine ingredients in such a way as to attract allure and appeal from the discriminating masses. He has made an enviable fortune by creating designer perfumes which are touted by some of the top beauty & cosmetic companies known to the world. After spending nearly two years attempting to devise an alcohol-free derivative that not only smelled, but tasted like whisky, Grattagliano sought the expertise from a team of scientists at a lab in Switzerland. This collaboration ultimately resulted in the creation of an entirely new molecule, the quintessential break-through by which ArKay beverages were born.

The name derives from Grattagliano’s travels abroad. Apparently, during his stays in China, some people had trouble pronouncing his first name. Instead of saying “Reynald” their utterance was closer to “Arr-K” – which was AOK with him.

Grattagliano worked several years on the project and it was only in 2012 that the W.A.R.M molecule was discovered.

Today the company ARKAY BEVERAGES is owned by Sylvie Grattagliano.
