Delta updates beverage options, featuring Black-owned distillery, women-made wine
Delta has announced a refresh for its inflight beverage menu. Starting this month, passengers can choose from a seasonally-inspired lineup that spotlights the first US Black-owned distillery, Du Nord Social Spirits, and Une Femme’s 100 percent women-made wine.
"It’s a menu as diverse as the people who make them and the customers who enjoy them," reads the Delta press release.
"Working with suppliers who not only provide us with the best products but also help us offer products that are made by people who reflect the communities we serve is a meaningful demonstration of our core values at work,” said Mike Henny, Delta’s Managing Director – Onboard Service Operations.
Throughout October, Delta will donate 20 percent of all onboard purchases, including beverages, to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Du Nord Foundation Vodka
Du Nord Social Spirits is the first Black-owned distillery in the U.S., and part of the company’s mission is to diversify the craft alcohol community. Foundation Vodka is smooth and easy to drink, whether on its own or mixed.
Du Nord’s Foundation Vodka will be available for sale on all domestic flights starting October. In 2022, Delta will bring on more Du Nord products and plans to launch the spirits internationally.
Breckenridge Brewery Cookie Porter Beer
Breckenridge Brewery’s newest beer is a unique twist on its Vanilla Porter and is inspired by the world’s favorite shortbread cookie to create an indulgent delight. Notes of biscuit, cinnamon, nutmeg and coffee combine with roasted malts and Madagascar vanilla to create the perfect pairing of classic favorites – cookies and beer.
Breckenridge’s beer will be available for sale on all domestic flights from October through the end of 2021.
Une Femme 'The Callie' California Sparkling Rosé
Une Femme produces 100% women-made champagne and sparkling wine; for every bottle the company sells, it donates to a charitable organization with the purpose of improving the lives of women. “The Callie” is Une Femme’s California sparkler. This crushable sparkling rosé is made with Napa and Sonoma-grown chardonnay, pinot noir and mourvedre grapes. It features juicy notes of ripe strawberry and rose petal on the nose, as well as nicely structured red fruits – think warm blackberries freshly plucked from the vine.
Une Femme’s sparkling rose will be available for sale on select domestic flights throughout the month of October. Delta plans to bring more Une Femme products onboard in 2022.
Tip Top Proper Cocktails Negroni
Each sip of this Negroni bursts with bittersweet notes of bright orange, grapefruit and fresh juniper. Tip Top’s traditional preparation of this classic, which includes dry gin, red bitters and sweet vermouth, pours perfectly over ice, straight from the can, every time.
Tip Top’s Negroni will be available for sale on select domestic flights throughout the month of October.
Terrapin Beer Company Hopsecutioner IPA
The Hopsecutioner IPA is Terrapin Beer Company’s flagship beer. The beer has a light copper color and carries aromas of fresh pine and citrus. A strong malt backbone provides balance to an aggressive hop bitterness.
Terrapin’s Hopsecutioner will be available for sale on select domestic flights throughout the month of October.
