Adnams says its Ghost Ship Alcohol-Free beer has all the same flavours and aromas as Adnams original Ghost Ship, but at 0.5% abv, which complies with UK law. Adnams brews Ghost Ship as normal, but then sends a batch to its new de-alcoholisation equipment. This uses osmosis to remove most of the alcohol via permeable membrane under pressure and a low temperature. Ghost Ship Alcohol-Free has 21 calories per 10cl and is said to provide a low alcohol but “great tasting” drink for summer days and nights.
