The evening's proceedings were kicked off with a keynote speech from our expert speaker, Ara Carvallo, Portfolio and I&D Director of Distill Ventures.

She discussed key themes including:​

  • how non-alcoholic drinks can bring more diversity and inclusivity to the drinks industry

  • how can founders incorporate their cultural backgrounds into unique flavours

  • how non-alcoholic drinks can create inclusive spaces to offer more choices when socialising

Meet the founders of the future! We had three fantastic brands showcase their range of non-alc options and attendees had the opportunity to taste and rate the drinks!

"I launched my first drinks business Caleño, 4 years ago. In the early years I recognised the lack of diversity in the industry and female founders in this space. This is still very much the case and I'm passionate about helping to drive a change so that we may see, champion and celebrate more female entrepreneurs in this industry who undoubtedly will go on to achieve great things"
