Our reviews are research-based, and all trials and testings are conducted in-house over days and weeks. We have a strict no-free-sample policy to ensure our reviews are fair and impartial.
From non-alcoholic beers to zero proof mixers, and even alcohol-free versions of the classics, we’ve reviewed at least one brand from each segment. Before adding a new review to the pre-existing list, we asked our entire Team whether or not they would opt for non-alcoholic beverages and why.
From better health markers, lower-calorie alternatives to abiding by certain religious rules or merely for convenience (whether you’re behind the wheel or at the beach), there are tons of genuine reasons to try alcohol-free drinks.
Back to our rum and coke review, this classic may seem amusingly simple. The recipe is literally in its name. However, there’s more to it than what meets the eye. Varying proportions, different types of rum are a few of the most common ways to tweak it to your liking.
From flavored ginger ale to 2-3 calorie colas, Svami is one of India’s first brand of non-alcoholic beverages. We ordered the one variant that excited us most and here’s our Svami Non-Alcoholic rum and cola review.

Svami Non-Alcoholic rum and cola is a low-calorie, alcohol-free cola that is flavored with vanilla, caramel, and cinnamon. The brand claims this tastes like the traditional alcohol-based rum and cola with a dash of lime BUT is 100% alcohol-free.
It comes in a premium-looking glass bottle but the liquid itself looks fairly regular like a carbonated cola beverage. When we poured it in our serveware, initially, the fizz was outstanding. To our surprise, this beverage retained for relatively longer compared to other commercially available fizzy beverages.
Hitting us with yet another delightful surprise, the aroma was just like alcohol-based rum and cola. Svami’s is easily the only non-alcoholic rum and cola that comes very close to its alcohol-based counterpart, in terms of aroma.
Our expectations before the taste test were quite high, and Svami did not let us down! Right at the beginning of the sip, there’s a wave of refreshing crispness. It is a blend of mildly sweet cola paired with a barely-there citrus kick.
