BA adds Churchill favorite to Club World pours
British Airways has added Graham’s Six Grapes, the Port favored by Sir Winston Churchill, to its business class (Club World) drinks menu this month.
Graham’s Vintage Character Port and was served to his guests at Chartwell House, Churchill’s country home. The historic Port has a bouquet of ripe plums and cherries and will pair particularly well with the desserts and cheeses on board this month (August). British Airways is serving a roasted white chocolate and hazelnut tart and the cheddar and Camembert with spiced mulled apple jelly.
“Port is incredibly popular in Club World - last year alone nearly 41,000 bottles were served to our business class customers- so we are delighted to be adding Graham’s Six Grapes to the menu,” said Colin Talbot, British Airways’ Head of Catering. “At altitude it holds its flavor well thanks to its good structure and with the long lingering finish, it will wonderfully complement the dessert and cheese selection on flights.”
Additionally, this fall British Airways will be launching a new restaurant-style premium dining service in Club World, with display trolleys allowing customers to select dishes from a choice of freshly prepared starters and desserts served on beautiful new table settings. The airline also announced a sleep partnership with The White Company, the British retailer will supply bedding and amenity kits in Club World to ensure customers get a good night’s sleep in the sky.
