September brought the return of several golf tournaments to the region, including Niagara College’s own NC Classic, which took place at Peninsula Lakes Golf Club, in Pelham, on Sept. 20. Two days later, the same venue also hosted the Food and Beverage Ontario (FBO) annual tourney, which featured sponsorship from our Food & Beverage Innovation Centre.
For both events, R&I staff was on hand to talk about recent innovations, and to serve up zero-alcohol gin and tonics, featuring industry partner DistillX’s Sobrii 0-gin. Canada’s first non-alcoholic distilled gin, created at Niagara College in partnership with DistillX Beverages Inc., is made from all-natural botanicals and extracts, contains no sugar, artificial flavours, sweeteners or calories. And even better – there is no hangover.
