The Future Is Functional

Join us for a discussion that takes a closer look at the next generation of Non Alcoholic drinks - ones that offer additional benefits coming from functional ingredients like adaptogens, nootropics, ginseng, caffeine among many others. Hear from our panel of brand owners and experts as they explore how shifting consumer behaviour is driving interest as well as what challenges exist in this fast-changing segment.

The Future Is Functional

In 2022, Non-Alc spirits are more mainstream than ever, and following six years of innovation, distinct zero proof categories have emerged that offer distinct drinks occasions. In this session, we’ll take a closer look at these emerging categories, examine how the consumer approach to Non-Alc has evolved (from the notion of drinks ‘without’ alcohol to drinks ‘with’ added flavor and ingredient benefits) and hear firsthand from entrepreneurs within the functional drinks as we explore whether the future of Non-Alc innovation lies within this space.

Speakers:
Heidi Dillon - Managing Director, Distill Ventures
Vaughn Yates - Founder, Virgin Mary Bar
Anne Brooks - Founder, Eceaux Drinks
Tatiana Mercer - Co-Founder, Three Spirit
Pauline Idogho - Founder, Mocktail Club
