Liquid Academy Live to mix it up at ScotHot

Glasgow-based drinks specialist Liquid Academy has announced a return to ScotHot for 2019.

Taking place on the 13th and 14th March at Glasgow’s Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in collaboration with Scottish Tourism Month, ScotHot is the Scottish hospitality and catering sector’s largest and most comprehensive trade event.

CJW1 351Across both days at ScotHot, Liquid Academy Live will showcase the latest innovations and developments across the global drinks and hospitality sectors, with a packed programme of competitions, talks, tastings and interactive workshops.

Highlights on the first day of the popular event include ‘From Medicine to Mixology’, a journey through time fuelled by original and new-age bitters and ‘Taste and Flavour’, the ultimate practical guide to wine and food pairing, led by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.

On the second day, ‘The Negroni Elevator’ will see 10 of Scotland’s leading bartenders go head to head to create their unique take on the classic cocktail, while ‘Drinks Industry Question Time’, comprising two interactive panel sessions curated by The Scottish Licensed Trade Association and The Scottish Bartenders Network, will discuss some of the most pressing topics across the industry, including Brexit, employee protection, personal license problems and the sugar tax.

Spaces at all the Liquid Academy Live sessions at ScotHot 2019 are available to book in advance on the ScotHot website.

 Ross Carter, Event Director for ScotHot, said:

“The drinks industry is one of the fastest paced sectors in hospitality. From brand innovation and development, to the ever-changing landscape of on-trade premises, there has never been a more exciting time to work in the drinks industry in Scotland. We’re delighted that Liquid Academy has confirmed a return to ScotHot this year, and we’re looking forward to rolling out an exciting programme of content across both days at the event.”

ScotHot is attended by more than 7,000 key decision-makers from the Scottish food, drink, hospitality and tourism industries. Over the course of two days, the event hosts more than 200 curated exhibitions from hospitality operators and suppliers, educational talks from key industry figures, and demonstrations from some of the country’s leading chefs, culminating in the hotly-anticipated Scottish Culinary Championships.
