Zero Emissions

As part of our responsibilities to the community and commitment to reducing our environmental footprint, Philglas & Swiggot has just taken delivery of a new Nissan zero emissions city van.

As we strive to become more sustainable, the vehicle decked out in it’s impressive new livery, will be used to deliver the majority of orders across all London postcodes in a bid to cut carbon emissions and enhance our level of personal service across the capital.

All deliveries outside of London are managed by our courier partner Parcelforce Worldwide who take their environmental and community responsibilities very seriously. They have a comprehensive programme of activities to reduce impact on the environment and invest in third-party environmental initiatives. All their operational and headquarter sites have achieved the ISO14001 standard.

All courier orders are packed using Pulpsafe bottle packaging which offers the highest levels of protection for shipping your bottles with the greenest possible eco-credentials. Made in the UK, Pulpsafe packaging is recyclable, compostable and biodegrade. It can be placed in any household compost head and will biodegrade less than 6 months. Pulp is made by combining water and recycled paper and then moulded using wet pressing technology. The moulded pulp is then heated to give it strength and rigidity.

A very special thanks to our partners Signs Express Oxford who did a brilliant job with the vehicles sign writing.

Wine is very much intrinsic in the ‘Portuguese lifestyle’ and it is enjoyed at meal times with family, out in restaurants with friends, or even as part of important business lunches. Portuguese cuisine is extremely rich and varied, ranging from fresh seafood, to meaty stews and even a mixture of both. With more than 250 indigenous grapes, there’s a wine for every occasion.

It’s the middle of 2021 and we’re still not out of the pandemic that sunk 2020 and scattered people and wine businesses far and wide, and yet, watching the rescue boats in Bordeaux you have a sense that they are once again all rowing in the same direction. Uncharacteristically uncertain with the 2019 En-Primeur campaign that gave us such wonderful prices, the Bordelaise have adapted once more and have been on song like a choir about the charms and benefits of the 2020 vintage.
