The trend for cocktails on tap is hardly new but is much discussed among the industry, with many bars around the world adopting ready-mixed cocktails in bottles and in kegs.

Those who take an opposing view are usually over the potential loss of quality that comes with pre-batched drinks or the lack of theatre when shaking and stirring is replaced with the flip of a tap.

However the concept comes with its benefits too. This can include faster service, more consistent cocktails and bigger profits. A kegged cocktail even allows you to try a sample before you commit to a full glass.
