Mark Murphy, food and beverage manager at Virgin Atlantic, said in a statement from the airline: “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.”
