Our History

ARKAY

Reynald Grattagliano was inspired to produce the drinks following an episode with his 22-year-old son Kevin Grattagliano, 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. Kevin, 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.

Though Reynald 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. After spending nearly two years attempting to devise an alcohol-free derivative that not only smelled, but tasted like whiskey, Reynald 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 Arkay derives from Reynald’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.

Reynald worked several years on the project, and it is only on 2011 that the W.A.R.M molecule was discovered.

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

Arkay has a small molecule placed inside the drink. In contact with the tongue, the drink sends 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.

Side effects and safety of drinking ArKay

No hangovers

One of the big benefits of drinking Arkay instead of alcohol is that it will not overly dehydrate your body or fill it with the toxins that lead to headaches and hangovers.  While Arkay won’t impair your cognitive abilities and mental clarity in the same way that alcohol does.

Non-addictive

ArKay has been proven to be non-addictive. Unlike other substances, drinking Arkay is not habit forming and you will not build up a tolerance to the effects of drinking ArKay causing you to need to drink more each time. In fact, the exact opposite has been shown, that the beneficial effects of a drink of Arkay can be felt even more when it is drunk on subsequent occasions. This is because of the distinctive way that Arkay affects the brain.

Arkay culture

Over the six years, the popularity of ArKay has been increasing worldwide as more and more people discover the benefits of drinking ArKay can bring. Numerous Arkay bars and alcohol-free liquor shops will open soon in the U.S and worldwide.

SOME TIPS HOW TO DRINK ARKAY

Some of our zero proof spirits are very strong and you may be surprised by the strength of the drink.

When drinking Arkay for the first time you should try it the same way as if you drink a cocktail by mixing Arkay with cola or sparkling water over ice, then wait a few seconds for the bubbles to settle down before you drink.

Welcome to the Fantastic, Alcohol–Free Liquor’s World

ARKAY

wine culture was growing and it was still a foregone conclusion that everyone was drinking alcohol. This was when Reynald Grattagliano introduced ArKay, the first ever alcohol-free spirit alternative to the world. In the US his product was met with ridicule and resistance. Why? Because it had never been considered, “Alcohol-Free Whisky?” No one would have thought that could be possible and new ideas are always met with resistance. 

ArKay, having survived those early days through the passion and determination of Reynald Grattagliano, is able to see the fruits of its labor even though the idea that was almost a decade ahead of its time.


“we’re hearing customers ask for alcohol-free options everywhere and juices and sodas no longer cut it.” expressed local bartender Bill Georges. “Wanting an alcohol-free option doesn’t mean they want a juice box, nor does it mean they have a problem with alcohol.

It means they want something with all the flavor and complexity of a traditional alcoholic beverage and want to stay sober.”

“With this alcohol-free spirit collection, I see myself as a kid again. This is my chance to give a piece of myself to people…a piece of my soul to their souls”
