Nohibition® - The Spirited Renaissance

October 15, 2014 1 Comment

It’s sometimes hard to imagine how far the spirits industry has grown, innovated and re-imagined itself from the dark days of Prohibition.

Nohibition®... The Spirited Renaissance - is defined as the polar opposite to the dark ages of Prohibition. The new beginning, or great awakening commenced in the early 21st century… with a handful of bartenders asking why not... going back to study history to re-imagine a future with no boundaries, endless possibilities and the opportunity to bring drinking enlightenment to the masses.

Whilst new Prohibitionists agitate throughout the world, threatening new legislation, new taxes, advertising restrictions... the industry has banded, educated and self-regulated to stave the threats.

To see how Nohibition® - The Spirited Renaissance has transformed the terroir TODAY we must ask the question(s): What new brands, categories, technology, innovations we take for granted TODAY that were not in existence 5-10 years ago?

Then stand back and be struck as we see how far we’ve come… it’s far more than awesome... it’s mind numbing!

When the world moves as fast as the power of thought, you’ll be amazed by who’s on the list!

Here’s a few examples:

The 86 Company

Fever Tree

The Bitter Truth


Berlin Convent

 World Class


 St. Germain


Hendrick's Gin


London Cocktail


Face Book






Berlin Bar Convent is a perfect example of the aforementioned Innovation... walk the endless halls at the show and you’ll soon see that over 50% of companies and brands on display... were NOT in existence 10 years before!

Our point: The Spirited Renaissance is bigger than just a brand or even the industry itself… the real power is understanding that the tidal wave of ideas, representing the hopes and dreams of so many passionate individuals and corporations becomes the sustaining force to outpace government legislative walls, keep up with consumer trends; providing assurance and opportunity for enterprising entrepreneurs, re-imaging tomorrow!

Hang on for the ride!

Although Clicker 6 is not on the iPad, there are some apps that will do bits of it.Pictello (a314ish) produces diatigl books that are similar to those produced in Clicker 6. Grid Player (free) offers a writing tool with word prediction, symbol support and speech. Copy and paste into a word processor e.g. Pages in order to print writing.Assistive Chat, allows text to speech with word prediction. Programme learns new words Again, copy and paste into Pages to print.I have just been playing with Clicker 6 and made a video Christmas song book by importing a Christmas song / video into the main cell on one of the pages of the book, adding a picture to link to the song, typing the title of the song in the text box underneath the main cell and record some thing about the song. Can’t share it though as using downloaded You Tube videos.Great programme. Sue Plymouth, UK
