British Airways is continuing its 100-year anniversary celebrations — this time by releasing its very own, custom-made English sparkling wine, a 2015 Blanc de Noirs.

As of 1 July, the bubbles will be served in the carrier’s first class cabins, as well as in the airline’s Galleries First and Concord Room lounges at Heathrow. If you can’t possibly wait that long, you’ll be able to get a first try at the Mad Hattingley Tea Party at TASTE of London in Regent’s Park from 19-23 June.

The wine, made exclusively for British Airways at the Hattingley Winery in Hampshire, is said to be the perfect drink to have at altitude. (Let’s hope it tastes just as good in the lounges.) It seems exclusive alcohol is a theme at the moment with the airline, as it’s developing its very own limited edition scotch Whiskey with InchDairnie distillery. But, you’ll have to wait until 2031 for that.

This is the latest of the airline’s centenary celebrations, which have so far included the re-painting three of its Boeing 747s in BOAC, Negus and Landor colours, as well as an Airbus A319 in the old school BEA red, white and blue.
