The new market trend of liquid water enhancers to make plain water 'interesting' has skyrocketed. In the latest issue of Inside Drinks we take a look at how this concept is transforming our once ordinary drinking water.

We also speak to the team behind Marley Coffee, discover how to make the perfect brew from the London café chain Workshop and learn about the rise of the popular Asian lassi. Additionally we explore the method of making soda at home, take a trip to Austria to find out more about their wine and investigate how craft beer is taking the world by storm.

Moreover, we examine a new quantum cascade laser technology that is designed to check for any water impurities and we find out why healthy energy drinks and juices are revolutionising the on-the-go aisles.
