Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

English wine paint 

If your love of English wine knows no bounds, this one’s for you.

A recent collaboration between UK wine merchant Laithwaites and colour institute Pantone has resulted in the launch of a paint shade called ‘English sparkling’ to mark the growing success of the category.

“Just as Burgundy and Champagne are very well known terms for colours it’s now time for quality English sparkling wine to take centre stage,” said David Thatcher, CEO of Laithwaite’s Wine.

The natural off-white shade is described as “subtle and stylishly elegant” and takes its cues from the “soft and natural creamy hues” of English sparkling wine, specifically Wyfold Vineyard Brut by Barbara Laithwaite, with the intention of conveying “freshness and modernity”, a release announcing its launch stated.
