Why Wine on Tap?

Why would someone choose to purchase a glass of wine that comes from a tap? Simple, Freshness!

When choosing to purchase a glass of wine there are so many factors that can go wrong. Oxidized wine, Corked Wine, Sediment, Wrong Temperature etc. These factors have an impact on the consumer. I know people that wont drink a full glass of Red because they are worried that there may be sediment in the glass, Even if they can see there is nothing there. They have been put off that much, from a bad experience.

Wine on Tap from Steel Kegs, allows us reduce the chances of finding sediment in the glass. In fact i have never seen any sediment pass through our taps, so straight away it will be more pleasurable for the consumer.

The main reason to choose a glass of wine from a tap is Freshness. In steel kegs the wine does not require as many sulfites to keep it from spoiling. The steel plays a big part in that as it does not allow oxygen to penetrate causing the wine to oxidize like it does with Glass bottles, Bag in Box wines or even Plastic Kegs.

So next time you see wine on tap in the UK and if i comes from a steel keg, then you know your in safe hands. #steelwines

You can Make a Difference, Today!

You can make a difference Today with your Wine profits as well as the most important, The Environment.

Technology has taken us to incredible lengths to make our daily lives better. One of these ways came in the form of Wine on Tap / Wine by the Glass.

Wine from a Steel Keg / Wine on Tap gives the consumer 1 thing a bottle can not, Freshness. And a Keg also gives the environment something the Bottle will never do, SUSTAINABILITY.

Say goodbye to endless bottles ending up at recycling plants or landfill, and welcome Stainless Steel Kegs of wine where, you will never need to throw a bottle away and never tip away or, in some cases, cook with oxidized wine again.

Opt for Wine on Tap the ultimate way to give freshness to both the Consumer and the Environment.

Have a wonderful Day.

Why Steel not Plastic?

Why Steel not Plastic?

Plastic and Oxygen are the 2 enemy’s of wine, so why would you put the two together?? it baffles me. Any sort of plastic container allows oxygen to perforate and make contact with the precious contents which is Your Wine. Due to this the quality of the wine will decrease continuously.

There is a way to stop this. Forget Bag in Box Wines, Forget Key Kegs (Plastic Kegs) and opt for the only thing that is worth using, Steel Kegs.

Wine on Tap has been around for decades. Using Steel containers has been around for half a century in vineyards, because there is nothing better to store your wine in to keep it fresh.

Wine on Tap in the UK is becoming increasingly popular but most are still using these two villains of wne.

Keep your Wine protected and treat it with the care it demands. #steelkegs #wineontapuk #winebytheglass

Over 55 TONNES of Empty Wine Bottles … Reduced!

We as a company have very specific goals in mind when it comes to serving wine. One of these goals is to remove the unnecessary wastage that we produce just to enjoy a Glass or Two.

With technology we can reduce a lot of waste and increase quality. For example, using our stainless steel kegs (100% sustainable) to dispense wine we can reduce:

  • Carbon Emissions from Shipping
  • Reduction in unnecessary packaging, corks/ screw tops, labels, boxes etc

If one bar was to go through 1 x 20 liter keg per week (the equivalent to 26 bottles) for 1 year they would reduce:

  • 1352 bottles from recycling and landfill
  • 113 Shipping Boxes
  • 1352 Corks / Screw Caps
  • 1352 Labels

This is just from one bar using 1 keg per week. Imagine if we could have 100 bars going through the same amount of wine weekly, this would remove 135,200 bottles per year from recycling. That’s over 55 tonnes of even the light weight bottles being reduced.

Its time to join the REVOLUTION which is WINE ON TAP and make a difference #showyoursteel #Steelwines
