Number 1 Paper Bottle

A World First for English Wine!

  • 75CL
  • ABV 11%

When we first started out on our adventure, we were shocked by a couple of facts that hit us rather hard. Firstly, the UK only recycles around 70% of its glass*. The rest ends up in landfill. Secondly, almost half the Carbon Footprint of a bottle of wine comes from the bottle and associated packaging such as the label, cork etc**

Something needs to be done and we want to help kick start a more sustainable approach to wine production, especially in English Wine. It's a rapidly growing sector and now is the chance to establish new norms of packaging.

So we've committed to ditching glass bottles for good within the next five years and we are exploring all options including this. It's possible thanks to this unique Paper Bottle made in the UK by a sustainable packaging company who claim a carbon footprint 84% lower than that of a glass bottle. We've also measured a Number 1 filled glass bottle vs. a  paper bottle and found it 30% lighter! Pretty remarkable. 

Not only that but we'd challenge you to spot any difference in the quality of our Number 1 in this paper bottle over that of the standard glass bottle version. In fact, check out our comparison case and see if you can tell!

What does the English Vine say?

The magic about wine is that every situation can call for a different type but sometimes the last thing you want to think about is that. Think Thursday night when it has been a hard day at work, think Saturday when it’s been a fun day with the kids but you're shattered, think the dinner party with good friends and you want an easy drinking, enjoyable wine that all will love. Well, this is what we've only gone and made - this easy drinking Bacchus, created by us, is the go-to wine for any situation.
