What is it?

Consumers are more health-conscious than ever, and while that may send a few drinks firms into a panic, others see it as an opportunity. The London Essence Company, which works with bartenders to create premium low-calorie mixers, has launched an immersive art exhibition “where perception-shifting light design meets low-calorie cocktails.”

The installation focuses on light and its connection to wellbeing, with different settings for both the day and evening sessions to change the mood. Each night, a different mixologist will be drafted in from London’s top bars to serve low calorie drinks. Erik Lorincz, the head bartender at The Savoy’s American Bar, is kicking things off on Monday.

Meanwhile, guest speakers like James Wong (botanist and broadcaster) and Ben Branson (Founder & CEO at Seedlip) will deliver talks on topics such as well-being, low alcohol drinks, mindfulness and using light to improve nutritional values in ingredients.

How much?

Tickets cost £12 through TimeOut, which includes entry and two cocktails.
