Club Soda, the mindful drinking movement, is bringing its Mindful Drinking Festival to Scotland for the first time.
The Mindful Drinking Festival, on 13th October, at The Briggait, 141 Bridgegate, Glasgow, will give Scots the opportunity to taste the new wave of alcohol-free drinks hitting the market: alcohol-free beers, spirits, and a host of drinks invented by radical alchemists – kombuchas, shrubs and elixirs.
The Mindful Drinking Festival will feature over 30 brands from Scotland and across the UK, looking to highlight a range of inspiring alcohol-free drinks to a growing legion of fans, from the sober curious and parents-to-be, to foodies and fitness fanatics. The festival plays into a growing interest in healthier low and no-alcohol drinks.
Club Soda is the UK’s Mindful Drinking Movement. It supports individuals to rethink their drinking habits, have built an online guide featuring the best pubs and bars for mindful drinkers, and curate the best alcohol-free drinks at the Mindful Drinking Festivals. Club Soda already has over 1,000 Scottish members.
Club Soda co-founder Laura Willoughby MBE said, “When we launched our first festival in London last year, we immediately got requests from our members and organisations in Glasgow to bring the event to Scotland. So we have!
“The most common request we get is for ideas about what to drink instead of alcohol, so we have curated our favourites, and created an event for everyone. The festival is great for those going sugar-free, on a fitness regime, drinking more mindfully, or going alcohol-free. There are many reasons why people may want to swap out a few alcoholic drinks for something a bit healthier.”
