Back in 2007, Reynald Vito Grattagliano was inspired to produce alcohol free spirits 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 Reynald Grattagliano.

3 years later he launched Arkay, the world’s first 0% ABV non-alcoholic spirit.

How Arkay Was Invented?

The founder of Arkay, a product line of beverages that are whisky flavored but 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.

Reynald 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 Reynald Grattagliano.

The son, of course, didn’t realize 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.

Arr-K

The name derives from Reynald 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.

Though Reynald 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 whiskey, 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. 

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

Arkay Alcohol Substitute

Arkay has a small molecule placed inside the drink, in contact with the tongue the drink send stimuli to the brain, the illusion operates, and the mucous membranes of smell and taste saturate and make the consumer believe that he is drinking alcohol. 

No drunkenness, no adverse effect, this is the advantage of Arkay, it reproduces the taste of the liquor but none of the negative effects of the alcohol.

Individuals with medical condition or religious beliefs that prohibits the consumption of alcohol can enjoy the crisp and taste of ArKay non-alcoholic liquors.

This new concept of alcohol-free adult beverages grew into a diverse product line that features no alcohol, calories, carbs, sugar or sweetener that is gluten-free and vegan-friendly. Arkay is also entering the cannabis-infused drink market with the world’s first cannabis-infused alcohol-free liquors, cocktails and beers.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
