Wines in Saudi Arabia

There is now a wide selection of non-alcoholic beverages available for sale is Saudi Arabia.  The ones I have tried taste pretty darn good!  Alcoholic beverages are strictly illegal here.  Some folks (mainly expats) try to make their own moonshine.  Some even do it as a business - at the risk of severe punishment.  One 74 year old British expat just spent a year in prison and was sentenced to 360 lashes, which was recently commuted and he has now been sent safely back home.

I would have wondered. Though I am seeing alcohol free cocktails here.
