If you are travelling anytime this month, then it’s worth having a look at Virgin Atlantic’s new ‘Nolo’ drinks menu.
Launched this month and timed to coincide with the annual Dry January one-month booze-free challenge, the menu is ideal for those looking to enjoy no and/or low-alcohol cocktails inflight.
The airline has partnered with non-alcoholic spirits brand Seedlip, and Australian “quaffing vermouth” Regal Rogue to create four no and low-alcohol cocktail choices.
The new menu comprises two non-alcoholic cocktails and two low alcohol options:
Red Sky at Night (no alcohol)
Seedlip Spice, Fever Tree Indian tonic, lemon slice
Shepherd’s delight (no alcohol)
Seedlip Spice, Fever Tree ginger ale, lemon slice
The Bold Mule (low alcohol)
Regal Rogue Bold Red vermouth, Fever Tree ginger ale, lemon
The Bold Spritz (low alcohol)
Regal Rogue Bold Red vermouth, soda, lemon
The drinks list will be available across the airline’s economy, premium and upper-class cabins.
Created to offer customers choosing not to drink alcohol onboard a “grown-up option with unique flavours”, the quartet is available now across economy, premium and upper-class cabins.
Commenting on the move, Virgin Atlantic’s food and beverage manager Mark Murphy said: “With the global trend of no and low alcohol cocktails, Seedlip and Regal Rogue are the perfect partners to bring this option to our customers.
“There’s a big focus across the airline industry on reducing the amount of alcohol consumed in flight, and we’re delighted to be leading the way by offering our customers across all cabins a selection of zero and low alcohol alternatives.”
Seedlip founder Ben Branson said: “Virgin Atlantic is renowned for its world-class cocktail offering and we’re so proud to be part of it.
“As a brand, we champion inclusivity, flavour and experience over ABV and so we look forward to bringing an exclusive selection of cocktails to guests when they’re travelling.”
