Kingsland Drinks unveils sparkling new line

20 April, 2016

Kingsland Drinks has this week unveiled its carbonation line, making it the ‘first UK bottler company to sparkle wine’.

In response to a rising demand for sparkling wine, the company says the new line will fill between 12,600 and 15,000 bottles per hour. The first two brands to be carbonated are Kingsland’s own brands, Shorn Pinot Grigio from New Zealand and Live White Zinfandel. The line will continue to be used to bottle still wine alongside the existing four lines that operate at Kingsland’s Irlam site in Manchester.

Andy Sagar, managing director of Kingsland Drinks, said: “We’re delighted to see the carbonation line now up and running. We now have the ability to  ‘sparkle up’ their customers’ favourite wines and… also bring excitement to the wine category.”

Kingsland Drinks is an independent UK supplier of wine and spirits with 60 years of experience. Kingsland’s business accounts for 9% of the total UK wine market and its annual sales volume stands at 90 million litres.

Kingsland’s range includes Blue Nun, Andrew Peace and Baron de Ley.
