OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 25, 2013) - Party hosts looking for an alcohol-free beverage option for their guests need look no further than their local Sobeys for a wide selection of MADD Virgin Drinks.

The MADD Virgin Drinks line includes: alcohol-free red and white wines; brut, an alcohol-free champagne; and Margaritas and Mojitos, alcohol-free cocktails. The products provide a delicious and convenient alternative to serve designated drivers and other guests who prefer not to drink alcoholic beverages. MADD Virgin Drinks are manufactured and distributed by Hill Street Marketing.

"MADD Canada and Hill Street Marketing are pleased to continue our important partnership with Sobeys to make these products available to their customers," said MADD Canada Chief Executive Officer Andrew Murie.
