Drink Easy aims to reflect what and how people are drinking.

In 2019, we noticed that so many incredible drinks that sat outside the box. So for this year, we are launching our Alternative Drinks Category. Aimed at introducing light onto new drinks and a new way of drinking. Not only does Alternative Drinks reflect a burgeoning section of the market it also contains some seriously fun and exciting drinks, which we can’t wait to taste, judge and showcase.
