British Airways is celebrating British provenance by introducing four local wine producers from across England into their Club World cabin for the first time.
The airline’s Master of Wine has carefully selected the four English Sparkling wine options, which will be available on a rotational basis every three months, giving customers the opportunity to sample the ‘best of British’ bubbles during their flights.
Travellers in the Club World cabin can now enjoy a range of exclusive English Sparkling wines during their flight, previously only available in the airline’s First cabin. The airline is working with some of the best wine producers across England, to bring customers the best possible selection of English Sparkling wines.
The airline’s Master of Wine has selected four English Sparkling wines to be available on a rotational basis, changing every three months. Customers can now choose from two sparkling options when travelling in Club World, including the current Champagne resident Heidsieck & Co. Monopole Silver Top Non-Vintage Champagne, and now an exclusive English Sparkling wine option.
British Airways is introducing a variety of exclusive English Sparkling wines for its Club World passengers, starting with Digby Fine English Brut NV, which has over three years’ maturation, giving it great complexity and finesse for customers to savour. Later in the year, passengers can enjoy Simpsons Chalklands Cuvee Brut NV from Kent and Wiston Estate Brut NV from the South Downs.
British Airways’ Director of Onboard Experience, Sajida Ismail, said,
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.
Over the last few years, English sparkling wines have been gaining popularity worldwide and have received numerous international awards for their quality.
The unique combination of chalky soil, cooler climate, and expertise of English winemakers has resulted in wines that can compete with some of the best Champagne and sparkling wines from around the world.
As a result, more and more wine enthusiasts are turning to English sparkling wines as a premium choice, making them an exciting addition to British Airways’ Club World menu.
In addition to the English Sparkling wine selection, British Airways is launching Whispering Angel Provence Rosé and The Pale, curated from the same Château d’Esclans vineyards, for customers to enjoy across its lounges at London Heathrow and London Gatwick.
The airline continues to spotlight destinations through its premium wine selection, celebrating different destinations in its network each quarter.
In April, the airline will spotlight wines from the regions surrounding the city of Porto, Portugal, in its Club World and First cabins.
