    ELLIE WEBB - BUILDING A BOOZE -FREE BUSINESS

    ELLIE WEBB - BUILDING A BOOZE -FREE BUSINESS

    Sometimes in life, when you can’t find what you need, it’s time to make it yourself.
    Caleño was born out of personal frustration. Founder Ellie was on an alcohol-free night out with friends, getting down to some Latin funk. But something was bugging her. Why should not drinking mean not having fun? She felt uninspired by the alcohol-free drinks on offer and decided it was time to bring some joy to not drinking.
    Caleño first came to life in Ellie’s kitchen, but it was 5,000 miles later and trip back to Colombia when she felt re-inspired by her Latin roots. After soaking up the vibrant colours, tropical flavours and Latin beats of her family’s homeland, she returned home to bottle it.
    Fuelled by that Latin positivity, Ellie set out to infuse the sun-drenched flavours of Colombia with her non-alcoholic spirits. The result? Caleño. Non-alcoholic spirits, for anyone, anytime, anywhere.
    Ellie  joins us on Sober Sips to discuss building a brand, mindful drinking and what it takes to create the perfect AF spirit!

    Tava O'Halloran is the best-selling author of Queen of Clubs. Tava describes herself as a high vibration human whose weird energy levels mess with electrics! She is a wearer of many professional titles and labels; a retired club owner, entrepreneur and addict. A creative director, ideation expert and evolver.

    Tava a dyslexic storyteller, who magically isn't dyslexic when she writes creative words. Queen of Clubs is a wildly unpredictable, white-knuckled true story of a carefree 24-hour East London party girl turned scandalous nightclub owner. A story of the greatest love, whimsical questioning of the universe, and stepping into the hedonistic side of the night.

    A journey into the captivating world of clubland, fighting through the darkness of
    addiction towards the light of sobriety. With determination, grit and an unforgivable
    rock bottom. Basically; Eat Pray Love but with cocaine, nightclubs, and literally zero zen...

    Tava joins us on Sober Sips to discuss her alcohol and drug addictions, black out drinking and some home truths about alcohol and mental health.

Liane Abrams ,

Amazingly insightful sober podcast!

As someone who’s always been afraid to fully commit to sobriety but has been dipping my toe into the sober-curious lifestyle before I even knew there was a term for it, the Sober Sips podcast has opened my eyes to a whole new world. A world where it’s okay to not drink on a night out and not feel like you need to make up excuses. A world where working on being comfortable with yourself, without a drink, is simple.

Emily does a fantastic job at engaging in really insightful no-holds-barred conversations with all her guests and it’s such a great way to feel less alone on the sober journey. Wholeheartedly recommend

Really fantastic podcast!

I am a massive fan of Sober Sips - such a fabulous podcast! As someone who has recently given up alcohol it is really helpful to hear grounded and down-to earth interviews with such inspirational people. Emily is a wonderful host and asks really good questions to her guests. Thank you!

Loved it!

Huge fan of DJ Tonys Instagram page so I was really excited to see this! He says it how it is and the relaxed atmosphere Emily creates makes it a really easy, insightful listen. I’m 4 years into sobriety and listening to other people’s experiences helps me immensely.
