Club Soda Mindful Drinking Festival: 18th & 19th January 2020, The Truman Brewery, London
Bartenders wishing to explore low and no-alcohol options, be that for personal or menu development reasons, will be interested to learn that Club Soda’s Mindful Drinking Festival returns to the Truman Brewery this weekend.
Around 60 products from categories that include spirits, beer, cider, pre-packaged cocktails, and ‘adult’ soft drinks, will be available for sampling, with brand staff on hand to answer any questions visitors may have.
Masterclasses will also take place throughout the weekend, hosted by a panel of “wellness gurus” (typing that made me be a bit sick in my mouth). Speakers include Sober Girl Society, Love Sober, Andy Ramage, Toni Jones and Alice Rickard.
