With a rise in the range of drinks coming from our home soil, we feel it’s the best time to celebrate British drinks, whilst also highlighting the next big drink trends for 2020 onwards. At the show you can learn about, taste and source alcoholic and alcoholic-free drinks from across the UK by attending sessions on the Tasting Table then visiting these suppliers on their stands after each session. See below content to learn more about UK drink trends and all sessions on the Great British Drinks Movement's Tasting Table will be avaliable to book in February.
A new feature area for 2020, The Great British Drinks Movement is the at-show manifestation of a comprehensive content stream around the exciting varieties and growing market of drinks produced within the UK. TV personality Jane Parkinson will be joined by leading drinks experts to host fun, educational tastings and experiences for our visitor audience over the three days to explore the latest flavour trends in cider, beer, CBD, wine, spirits and the expanding Low & No drinks category.
This innovation area will truly display the exciting craftmanship, tasting notes, storytelling and the sustainable benefits of local sourcing - challenging operators to rethink and revitalise the drinks offering within their hotel, restaurant or catering business.
