Atypique: Alcohol-free drinks that are typically different

ALCOHOL-FREE AND ATYPICAL ON EVERY LEVEL.

Atypique drinks were designed to make consumers feel daring, courageous, and free to be themselves. Truly one-of-a-kind, the company aims to introduce an innovative product to the market, one that is inventive and doesn’t compromise on taste. Available exclusively at IGA.

This distinctive product is the result of an innovative idea, designed by a team of creative people determined to push the envelope when it comes to ready-to-drinks. These alcohol-free drinks are low in sugar and are an excellent alternative to your favourite cocktails. So go ahead, and drink without moderation!

A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP AND THE DESIRE TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE

Atypique was founded by two individuals: Jonathan Robin and Étienne Boulay. After working for 20 years in the real-estate industry, Jonathan Robin decided to quit and found NOROI, in Saint-Hyacinthe. His vision: produce high-end spirits using techniques that defy traditional procedures. The company’s first big win, in 2019, did not go unnoticed; the launch of Brise-Glace, an innovative, local, and alcohol-free ready-to-drink was a success! In fact, it was such a success that it helped Robin push his company even further, faster!

And that’s when ex-football player Étienne Boulay joined the team! The two businessmen met through mutual friends and immediately decided to join forces in order to come up with a delicious alternative to alcoholic drinks. Boulay, who has been sober for several years, also had the desire to do things differently: “I’ve always considered myself to be different. I never really fit into society’s moulds and I always take the path less travelled to get to where I’m going.”

The project developed at lightning speed. What started as a promising idea is now a full-fledged concept and the company wants to position itself as a pioneer in Quebec’s alcohol-free ready-to-drink market.

TIP AND TRICKS: HOW TO SERVE YOUR FAVOURITE DRINKS

1- Spiced rum & Cola
Serve your rum and cola in a highball—the perfect glass for long drinks. Tip: prior to serving your cocktail, place your glass in the freezer to get it nice and cold. Once thoroughly chilled, add some ice to the glass and top with your Atypique beverage. Garnish the rim of your glass with lime wedges. Cheers!

2- Gin & Tonic
Serve this beverage in a “long drink” glass—ideal for a gin and tonic. This high-walled glass is a classic that never goes out of style. Fill it with ice so that your drink stays cool and fresh, then add two slices of lemon per glass (or grapefruit if you prefer). Top with Atypique Gin & Tonic, stir, and enjoy!

3- Spritz
While a traditional spritz is served in a wineglass, you can switch things up and serve this spritz in a high glass. Add a few ice cubes, top with Atypique Spritz, and garnish with an orange slice!

4- Mojito
Serve this drink in a tumbler! Seeing as it’s quite tall, you can add a lot of ice, which is perfect for keeping this tropical drink cool and fresh! A mojito doesn’t require too much garnish, so keep it simple with a few mint leaves and one or two slices of lime. And two straws of course!
