FAQ's

Is there any alcohol in Monday?


No. Niet. Non. Nopeski. Nein. Nej. Tidak. Hellllll No. 没有. 🙅.


Why alcohol free? AKA why bother? 


We get it, we’ve loved a little tipple in the past too. Still do on occasion. But there are definitely times when it’s better to go alcohol free. You’re driving, are pregnant, have issues with alcohol from a health, emotional or relationship perspective, are at a work function where it’s better that you don’t let slip to Kevin in design that you’ve been crushing on him for like, forever, don’t drink for religious reasons, are doing Dry July, October, December, are on a diet that puts snooze on booze, or just want to feel good the next day when you wake up. Yup, there are plenty of reasons to say no.  


Why Monday?


Because most mocktail alternatives at bars taste like cat spray. Haven’t had the pleasure of tasting cat spray? Try an awful, pungent mocktail. It’s that, sickly sugar soda, or flavour-flat sparkling water. 


Monday provides something that not only tastes like your favourite adult beverage (along with the emotional and social connection that brings) but does it in a way that’s sugar free and made from all things good. Tick, tick, sip.

 

Can I drink Monday if I am pregnant?


Yes. And, congratulations! You’re making a little human, which makes you one of the most precious people on the planet. The fact that Monday is alcohol and sugar free makes it a great drink to drink during pregnancy (and even cover things up early since it looks like you’re still enjoying a tipple). 


If you have any allergy or pregnancy concerns about specific botanicals used in Monday, it’s worth double checking with your doctor using the ingredients list as reference. Peace of mind during this special time is a beautiful thing.  


How is Monday made?


Monday is made like regular gin, just without the alcohol part. We take locally-sourced springwater and distill botanicals to bring out their flavor-filled essence. We also include ingredients common in tonic such as quinine to give it that ready-to-drink taste. It’s then lightly carbonated for extra sparkle and bottled in something wonderful to (be)hold. 


Is there any sugar in Monday?


No. Niet. Non. Nopeski. Nein. Nej. Tidak. Hellllll No. 没有. 🙅. 

Keto on, our health-loving friends.


Is Monday Vegan?


Yes. 


No animals were harmed, or even scratched lovingly on the ear in the making of Monday drinks. Because, cleanliness and cruelty free is what we’re all about. There is a ‘hang in there baby’ poster on our wall at work with a picture of a cute kitten, but we’re pretty sure that little fella was loved just as much as our own pets at home. 


Why do I have to pay so much for shipping?


Oh the dreaded s word. Unfortunately, glass bottles are both fragile and heavy in comparison to sending floral dresses or frilly knickers (the ones I just got in the mail are amazing by the way. CUTE!). Because we need to pack things up safe and get charged by weight, that means a bit extra in terms of cost. We don’t even on charge the full amount of shipping at checkout, because we too know the sting of seeing that total go up. Hopefully we’ve absorbed enough so you can enjoy your sips and still afford to put a little umbrella in your cocktail glass. 


How long until I get my delivery?


I want it. Give it to me. C’mon. We know that excitement of waiting for a special package so get things out the door as fast as we can. After that, it’s up to Australia Post. Normally it takes 3-5 business days for metro deliveries, or 5-10 for regional. If you’re on a mountain top in the lands of faraway, maybe give it that little bit extra (and enjoy smelling the flowers and fresh air while you patiently wait). If things are taking wayyyy too long, check the next FAQ for tracking options.  


How do I track my package? 


You should have received a tracking link in your order confirmation email which you can click to check on progress. It will take you to the Australia Post website and show an ETA (that’s estimated time of arrival, not excellent tasty aperitif). If you’re wanting to chase things up, there is information on there to get in touch direct. If there’s simply no tracking info, send us an email with your order number and we’ll see what we can do to chase things up on our end.
