Tigernuts have been popular for centuries and across different cultures for their health benefits and nutrition. We speak to Mariam Kinkladze, founder of Organic Gemini to find out about the holistic uses of tigernuts in horchata and how the company plans to appeal to consumers who have never even heard of horchata.

Also in the latest issue of Inside Drinks, we look at the growing trend for healthy and freshly grown produce in the drinks industry, as mountains of fresh fruit and vegetables make their way out of Thailand and end up in supermarket shelves and homes around the world.

Moreover, we speak to Canadean about the popularity of premium juices with mixed flavours, find out more about 200-year-old rose liqueur spirit, Lanique, take a look at the new market for healthy plant-based drinks and, finally, explore the importance of a brand's history when connecting to consumers.
