British Airways is now serving award-winning English sparkling wines in its Club World cabin for customers.
The carrier says its Master of Wine has worked with several English wineries to source a range of sparkling wines. There are four English sparkling wine options which will be available on a rotational basis.
Passengers will be able to choose from two sparkling options when travelling in Club World. The options include Heidsieck & Co. Monopole Silver Top Non-Vintage champagne and an exclusive English sparkling wine option.
The first of the English sparkling wines on rotation is the Digby Fine English Brut NV, which has over three years’ maturation and pairs well with dishes on the Club World menu such as the grilled cod with sweet potato mousseline, mozzarella mezzaluna.
From July, the airline will serve the Balfour Rosé de Noirs by the Balfour Hush Heath Estate in Kent, which is made only from red grapes. The rosé sparkling wine is an exclusive blend for British Airways. Simpsons Chalklands Cuvee Brut NV and Wiston Estate Brut NV from the South Downs will be available later.
British Airways’ Director of Onboard Experience, Sajida Ismail, said: “We know English sparkling wines have attracted international acclaim over the years and are only growing in popularity, so we’re really excited to offer our customers English sparkling wines in our Club World cabin.
“We’re really proud to work with four of the very best wine producers across England to celebrate British provenance and bring exclusive sparkling options for customers to try for themselves on board.”
