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.

I always order a mixed case as you can get the best of both! They're absolutely delicious but the pink is definitely my fave. Only 450 cals per large bottle too!!
I decided to give this a try. Initially, we thought the first one (pink) was a little sour. But we had ordered 6 and so we kept going over time. We then loved the white and had another pink after that and really loved it too. We will be buying more of this in future. It’s a brilliant alternative and we will stick with it. Maybe it takes a bottle to get used to the difference but then we really started to appreciate it.
I'm not a huge fan of prosecco in general but really liked this. Very light and dry and yes, no hang over the next morning- always a bonus!
Perfect size absolutely delicious wine excellent value
Recommended by a bootcamp so it had to be good. And it is..
Clean crisp and fresh.
No chemical taste that you get with some cheap prosecco
Will definitely buy more
Love the white and pink prosecco, the taste is there without the calories. What more can you ask for ? Easy to order and fast delivery also.
Delicious wine, excellent quality and perfect size
I absolutely loved my mixed case of mini bottles. Perfect when I just want one drink and not the whole bottle.
Both the prosecco and rose are so light and delicious I've been recommending them to all my friends - which probably means I need to buy bigger bottles next time!
I lived these. They look and taste great and most importantly, no wine headache in the morning. I liked the rose best but that's probably because it's made with pino grigio grapes. The prosseco is very nice too. I'm going to order more today.
This Prosecco is delicate, clean and classy. For me the white was slightly better than the pink .. just lovely .. none of that sticky sweetness of cheap supermarket Proseccos . Will be buying this one again .. will definitely be my summer Prosecco and I’m really glad to have come across it .. stands out from the crowd.
The nicest proseco and sparkling wine I have ever tasted. Not too bubbly, just perfect 🥂
Great size bottles for not wanting to open a full bottle I.e. stressful day and just want a glass.
Really good to slip in a gift bag for presents too 💜💙
I could drink a lot of this wine, and it's vegan too.....so I bought more. It would have been rude not to. :)
I am so excited to finally find a delicious drink that is low calorie! I purchased a pack to try and love the flavour of both. They were packed really well and I even got a lovely thank you letter. Thank you so much, I will be recommending and buying again. I'm very happy!
It came in a lovely box and well packaged. Tastes like Pinot Grigio with bubbles, it was crisp, fresh and clean tasting. Most importantly I woke up feeling fresh, no headache or feeling sluggish like I normally do when indulging in wine. Will definitely order again,
