Just when we accept vegan bags and food, leading luxury brand that produces champagne surprised us with its new offer. French Champagne brand Duval-Leroy recently announced its plans to produce Champagne which will be 100 percent vegan-friendly. Due to rising customer demand for sparkling wine made “as naturally as possible,”t he company chose to begin clarifying its products naturally – without the use of animal-derived casein, egg whites, or gelatin.
“To become 100 percent vegan we needed 20 years’ experience,” Charles Duval-Leroy said. “A colossal project was mounted to arrive at a method of natural clarification.”
“The wines retain all their taste, giving Champagnes that are both rich and concentrated,” he added.
Duval-Leroy joins beer giant Guinness, who recently announced that it will remove isinglass from its Ireland plant by 2016, in the trend toward vegan alcohol filtration.
