BA adds English sparkler in 1st class
British Airways has become the first airline to serve English sparkling wine - it has selected Balfour Brut Rosé 2007 for first class customers.
The 2007 vintage, made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, will be released exclusively for BA.
Richard Balfour-Lynn, owner of the 400-acre Hush Heath Estate in Kent, where the sparkling wine is produced, said BA had borne out his belief that we can produce a top quality sparkling Rosé to match up to the top French Champagne houses. BA hope that by offering both their British and international customers a taste of Britain they will help put English winemaking on the map.
