All Bar One launches sustainable wine collection, JD Wetherspoon to offer more drinks from UK and non-EU producers
Each wine in the seven-strong #SustainableSipping collection has its own “planet-protecting story”, including lower carbon footprints, reduced waste methods and reusable energy practices.
The range includes a UK-exclusive, on-tap rosé with a 100% recyclable keg and a sauvignon blanc from New Zealand where animals roam free across the vineyard.
All Bar One marketing manager Laura Clarke said: “All Bar One’s new sustainable wine selection is one of the biggest at any UK bar chain. We like to trust the people behind the product and with these wines we feel really great about what we are serving.”
Meanwhile, JD Wetherspoon is to offer more drinks from UK and non-EU producers across its 880 pubs from Monday, 9 July.
It will replace champagne with sparkling wine from the UK and Australia and introduce three wheat beers brewed in the UK.
Alcohol-free Adnams Ghost Ship will replace Erdinger alcohol-free beer from Germany.
Wetherspoon will continue to serve Kopparberg cider from Sweden after the company confirmed it would produce its cider in the UK post-Brexit.
Chairman Tim Martin said: “We intend to honour existing contracts with EU suppliers, some of which have several years to run. However, we are starting to make the transition to non-EU trade now. Brexit will create big marketing opportunities for UK and non-EU producers, which Wetherspoon is keen to encourage.”
