There are also alcoholic drinks at the show for those who are after something a bit stronger. Beers, wines and spirits will be exhibited within the drinks section, but they can also be found in other areas of the exhibition, particularly in the Walk the World section.

There will be pre-mixed vodka energy drinks at the Jugular stand (SR507) and cocktail mixes from Ice Republic (SR4503), showing that not all suppliers think the ready-to-drink category has run out of steam.

The Cotleigh Brewery will be exhibiting on stand NI1839, showing its light, golden beer made from American cascade hops. The beer comes in a 330ml bottle and tastes "like summer" the brewery says.

The Lithuanian Beer Company will also be present, promoting 12 different Lithuanian beers and two Lithuanian vodkas on stand SS4661.

Angus Dundee distillers can be found on stand SR4505. The whisky distiller and exporter launched a miniature range last year for its award-winning Tomintoul, Speyside, and Glenlivet Single Malt. A range of its products will be on display.

Meanwhile, one of Asia's leading wineries, The Siam Winery in Thailand, will be on stand NX5319. The winery produces the Sabai wine cooler, which is a wine-based hibiscus drink that originated from Thailand.

Sabai has recently been launched in a pomegranate flavour to tap into the growing consumer demand for the fruit.

Alcoholic drinks can also be found in other areas of the show. In the Walk the World section, for instance, there will be a host of wine options in the French pavilion, including dessert wines from Perlé De Groseille.

Northern Ireland has a wide range

of drinks exhibits this year. These include the Whitewater Brewery, which will be displaying its Belfast Ale, as well as other types of beers from its portfolio.

The popular IFE Drinks Academy will also be making a comeback, with seminars on cocktail-making, English wines, and beer throughout the week.
