There are some soft drinks which are not suitable for vegans. A small number of orange-coloured drinks and orange juices contain gelatine (derived from collagen obtained from various animal by-products) and one or two red-coloured ones contain cochineal (food colouring derived from a species of insect). These will be stated on the packaging. You won’t need to look too closely to tell if there’s milk, cream, or honey in a drink; as this is usually easy to spot from the name.
Wines, beers, and ciders can be tricky. Yet wait a minute, isn’t booze just made from grapes and apples and stuff? Tell us about it! Distilled spirits (such as gin, brandy, whisky and vodka) are usually vegan-friendly, but it becomes somewhat complicated when you look at how some alcoholic drinks are clarified using protein from animals. To overcome these issues, try Barnivore.com.
What’s a delectable plant-based dinner without a great glass of wine or two? You’ll probably know too well the difficulty of sourcing high-quality wines which are free of animal products. Many commercial wines are filtered with gelatin or contain fish-based ingredients, while even vegetarian-friendly wines can contain casein from milk or albumin from eggs. We carefully hand-pick award-winning regional wines to ensure that they are not only totally vegan but also taste excellent and pair perfectly with your meals.
