There's been a huge amount of noise around non-alcoholic wine, beer and spirits in recent years.
And now, Lyre’s Non-Alcoholic Spirits has completed a capital raising that values the business at $500 million AUD.
This valuation has been achieved in less than two and a half years of trading for the Australian company founded in Sydney in 2019.
It’s now on track to become the fastest independent beverage brand to reach Unicorn status, meaning a valuation in excess of $1 billion US.
