DrinK Safe, DrinK ThinK
The last couple of months have seen a huge increase in drink spiking, with over 200 incidents being reported - and many incidents don’t get reported.
Nobody should feel unsafe when going out for drinks with friends, and nobody should feel like they have to stay in to feel safe.
You shouldn’t have to protect yourself from spiking, but the sad reality is that there are people out there who know it’s wrong to spike drinks but do it anyway.
Although anybody can be spiked, the vast majority of spiking victims are young women.
Women all over the UK joined an online campaign ‘Girls Night In’ to boycott nightclubs on the 27th of October to highlight the women’s safety issue and to encourage venue owners to help tackle the issue.
ThinK Mini Bottles
At ThinK Wine, we want to help you protect yourself from spiking. This is why we have manufactured our ThinK mini bottles, which are much easier to protect from spiking on a night out.
You can drink our 200ml mini bottles anywhere - whether you’re at a private party with friends, or you’re in a bar, club, or restaurant.
They’re small and easy to carry around with you, unlike our much larger 75cl bottles.
As you can see in the video, you can protect yourself from spiking by popping a straw into the bottle and covering the rest of the open bottle with your hand - meaning nobody can put anything into the drink.
We always recommend that you never leave your drink unattended - and to further protect your drink, simply pop the cap back onto the bottle once you’re finished sipping.
This makes it far more difficult for anybody to spike your drink, as they have to take the time to twist the top off, which will increase the chance of them getting noticed.
The mini bottles make it much easier for you to carry around and drink directly from the bottle - and the narrow bottle opening makes it near impossible for spikers to strike.
Unfortunately, standard glasses are easy to spike. A video went viral recently of a woman in a bar who turned her head briefly to chat to a man (who was distracting her), as a second man poured something into her drink.
Spiking can happen in a split second - so it’s always best to try and protect yourself however you can. DrinK Safe - DrinK ThinK.
How Do You Know If You’ve Been Spiked?
The effects of drink spiking vary depending on what you’ve been spiked with. Some signs that you’ve been spiked may include:
- Feeling sleepy or drowsy
- Feeling confused
- Being sick or feeling sick
- Problems with vision
- Lowered inhibitions
- Loss of balance
However, the symptoms will depend on what you’ve been spiked with and other factors such as your size or how much you’ve had to drink already.
If you think you’ve been spiked, or if you feel drunker than you should be, try your best to get help and alert the people behind the bar.
Many people will avoid reporting the spiking as they don’t remember the night clearly or they’re embarrassed.
It’s your choice whether to report the crime, but there is nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about if you’ve been spiked.

Organic Vegan Piccino Frizzante Prosecco & Sparkling Rosé (12x200ml)
Always enjoy your fabulous wines, great service again👍🥂🥂
Great tasting Prosecco. I Love the fact it’s better for you but you aren’t missing the flavour or changing the flayat all
Love this wine, very tasty, low cal and no headache the next day. Lovely service and quick delivery from company and this is now my regular drink. They also have good discount offers regularly and I’m nice and stocked up for Xmas. Thank you Think Wine x
Not only is this a gorgeous Prosecco but customer service equally fantastic. My delivery went missing. The team couldn’t do enough to rectify this and even threw in some goodies as an apology. Thank you Team Think!
Wow what can I say…. this is without a doubt my favourite Prosecco everrrr! With fewer calories it’s a no brainer, game changing awesome idea! I’m a total convert and future loyal customer! Love love love!
These little 200ml bottles are perfect just having the one or two. Haha perfect size love them! ❤ the prosecco is very yummy and no headache yet!!
This wine is so good! Unfortunately, won’t be able to order too often because it’s expensive. However, it’s worth the money.
I love the small bottles
Really lovely sparkling wine even though it’s low cal. It’s now my new favourite drink. Great customer service and delivery. Would defo recommend.
Only one minor point is that as I actually do prefer the rose it would be great if there was an option to purchase 6 of either just rose, or white, instead of just mixed. I still enjoy the white though. Apologies if it an option and I’ve missed it. Thank you
It’s smooth and delicious. Their service is top notch and delivery is quick. Also perfect as gifts, just bought 2. One for housewarming and another for a colleague’s promotion.
Done an 8k run the day after I’d drank the full bottle. Would never ever normally be able to do that’s but the no hangover thing is real. Wow such a difference
Very nice wine ..refreshing and easy to drink will continue to order but will order the small bottles as it’s tempting to drink the whole bottle !!
My first time buying the Rose small bottles. Greta fast delivery too . it’s not sweet but perfectly fizzy all the way to the end of the glass.
Wasn’t sure to start with but one you get used to the very slight difference in taste it s a game changer! Less calls and I would say less Prosecco head hang overs! Bottles are gorgeous and packaging great. Delivery all fab too.
