Spirits from two local distilleries at Imbibe in London
Two Northern Ireland distilleries are showing handcrafted spirits at Imbibe Live 21, the UK's leading drinks industry event which returns to Olympia London from 12-13 September.
The Northern Ireland participants are:
Mourne Dew at Warrenpoint, Co Down, the first distillery in the iconic Mourne Mountains in over a century and now an award-winning producer of gins, poitin and Irish malt whiskeys for export markets; and
Woodlab in Moy, Co Tyrone, producer of the successful range of Symphonia branded gins and a Caribbean rum, both using apples from Armagh orchards.
Imbibe Live is the innovative and interactive annual event for anyone who sources, buys or serves drinks in the licensed on-trade.
From sommeliers to buyers and managers to publicans and bartenders, they get together with a community of like-minded professionals in a business-focused environment.
The colourful two-day event is an opportunity to meet with drinks and snack brands, merchants and distributors and all associated suppliers who want to talk directly to drinks industry buyers and professionals.
It is also an opportunity to discover the latest products to the market and invaluable networking opportunities. Plus, an award-winning content programme is curated by leading industry figures.
