about

Aplós is a first-of-its-kind, hemp-infused non-alcoholic spirit that calms and uplifts without the negative effects of alcohol. Founded by David Fudge and Jessica Manley and developed in collaboration with Master Mixologist Lynnette Marrero, Aplós can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or mixed in a cocktail. Aplós seeks to replicate the ritual of drinking a spirit and reimagine the adult drinking occasion by offering a more natural way to unwind. 

Aplós' debut spirit is bold and nuanced, with notes of rosemary, cardamom, and citrus. Each serving is infused 20mg with organically-grown, broad-spectrum hemp sourced from Hudson Valley, NY, and contains zero calories and zero sugar in a formula that is vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO.

founding story

Aplós was founded by David Fudge and Jessica Manley, who, like many Americans, were looking for ways to drink less alcohol and consumer better quality products. 

David, who previously worked in marketing for Bonobos and Esquire, enjoyed the ritual of drinking alcohol and the function that it provided as a way to relax after work or socialize with friends. However, the downsides were considerable, so he sought out to develop a healthier way to unwind without the negative side effects. When David met his co-founder Jessica Manley, they bonded over their desire to create a product to help people slow down, a counterpoint to the “always-on” culture. Manley, whose family founded High Times Magazine, co-founded CBD consultancy Healing Ventures, where she helped brands to source and develop hemp and CBD-infused products. She was the perfect partner to help bring David’s vision to life.

Jessica led sourcing and formulation for Aplós and brought in Masterclass mixologist Lynette Marrero to collaborate on the initial recipe. The result is a calming yet mood-boosting spirit that has the versatility of a traditional spirit, in that it can be served neat, on the rocks, in a spritz, or mixed in a cocktail.
