Liquid offers the on-trade and the off-trade the opportunity to discover new and exciting products, techniques, services and trends, as well the chance to network.

It’s a focus on all things liquid! There will be a greater range of local, national and international drinks exhibitors at the show than ever before, covering hot, cold, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

The LWC Bar & Experience

This new drinks feature area is sponsored by LWC Drinks, Bar Equipment Direct, and Cornwall College Business.

There will be a central bar area, supplied by Beaumont, where you can watch professionals’ cocktail competitions, learn how to make mocktails & cocktails and enjoy wine & champagne talks & tastings.

You can also see how to use the correct equipment & skills to enhance your drinks serving and maximise profitability with Flair masterclasses from the World Flair Association.

Cocktail competition

There will be two cocktail competitions for professionals.

On Tuesday 7th March they will be challenged to create a Signature Cocktail with set ingredients. On Wednesday 8th March they will face the Market Challenge, when their creations will feature Old J Rum and ingredients collected from exhibitors.

LWC Drinks are providing prizes – a hamper of spirits & cases of beer on the first day, and an all expenses paid day trip, including a brewery visit, on the second, so competition should be fierce!
