It's not easy to get your 5-a-day, 8 hours sleep and stay healthy all the time so have an alibi and 'get away with it.' Alibi is a young and contemporary soft drinks business championing the popular health category within the dynamic soft drinks market. The drinks are light and refreshing, fruit juice blends of 20 essential vitamins, minerals and natural herbal extracts. and are free from caffeine, refined sugars and all artificial ingredients. 


It was whilst at Uni in 2007 that Alibi’s founder Olly Bolton first came up with the idea for the soft drinks brand.

Observing the popularity of nutritional supplements and the absence of any decent functional drinks on the market - Olly sought to create the ultimate 'grab & go' health refreshment.

Teaming up with the former senior scientific advisor to the UK government's committee on the safety of medicine and author of international beststeller 'health defence', Paul Clayton - Olly launched Alibi in June 2008.

The brand has excellent distribution within the education, catering and travel markets and now amounts over 5,000 UK stockists and 8 international markets.
