It’s Alive is a curated, one-stop shop for a range of wines, craft beers and ferments that have one thing in common: THEY’RE ALIVE!
It’s Alive was founded by two filmmakers with a passion for food, drinks and the people that make them.
We are obsessed with the processes, artistry and ingenuity of winemaking and beer brewing, but have always been frustrated at how the world of wine and craft beer can feel huge, overwhelming and sometimes exclusive. We want you to put down that naff bottle of supermarket wine or the watered down tinny of mainstream lager and try something better, so have done the hard work for you by curating the best of the best, described in a way everyone can understand.
We specialise in Natural, Biodynamic and Organic Wines, Mixed Fermentation beers such as lambics, and fermented foods. If you’re new to the world of natural wines and beers, it’s basically drinks made the way they’re supposed to be made; as little human or chemical intervention as possible.
The wines, beers and foods we sell vary by seasonality, trends and allocations, so our range is ever changing but there will always be something new to discover. We aren’t evangelists with a 20ft rulebook of what constitutes a “proper natural wine” or a “real beer”. Instead, we look for products that have the lowest possible human or chemical intervention, that speak of the place and the people that made it.
We are predominantly online, offering local delivery to all Greater Manchester postcodes as well as many Lancashire postcodes. We also ship nationally, or our customers are able to Click + Collect from our studio beautiful in Rossendale.
From our studio we are also able to offer photography and film services.
