Started by:

We’ll enjoy dinner, drinks & a chance to meet other entrepreneurs in the sector, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with James Shillcock founder of Vivid Drinks. James will talk about his experiences with Vivid Drinks, together with valuable insights for upcoming startups in the industry.

This dinner is for people who are passionate about drinks, food, taste and brand building, for people who love experimenting with flavours and who want to make something big and globally recognised. Most importantly, it’s for those who want to surround themselves with like-minded people to build a network of others with same dreams and same love for taste.

If you're launching a beverage product or are interested in how it's done, please join us. It’s a really exciting niche!

It will be an amazing opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs, as well as meet our speaker over dinner.

The cost includes private dining experience with after dinner speaker, 2 course dinner with wine plus highly curated and relevant networking.

James used to work for an independent tea company called We Are Tea where he was selling premium whole leaf and loose leaf teas to lots of different retailers. One day he discovered some matcha green tea and started blending it up with fresh lime, ginger and honey. It turned out to be a great, healthy, all-natural, naturally energising drink. That’s where the idea originally came from back in summer 2013.

Vivid Drinks had a phenomenal start. Vivid launched very successfully with Whole Foods and Planet Organic and have since gone into other great stores like Selfridges and Harvey Nicks. Vivid drinks range have picked up about 300 independents around the UK and have now gone into Waitrose as well. Sales within each store are growing and Whole Foods has said that Vivid Drinks have been the most successful tea-based drink that it’s seen in its stores.

On the menu:
Beer battered Cornish haddock with homemade tartar sauce and french fries
Vegetarian option: French goat's cheese and portobello mushroom tart fine with dressed mixed leaves

Carrot cake with raspberry coulis
Wine and soft drinks

We’re excited to be working with Cinnamon Bridge to arrange this dinner. Indre Kulakauskaite, Venture Manager from Cinnamon Bridge will be hosting this event with the full support of one of our TableCrowd hosts.

Cinnamon Bridge is a business growth accelerator focused on food and beverage startups.
