According the Vegan Society UK in 2017 the number of people identifying as vegan had risen by 350% compared to the decade prior. Similarly, the Coeliac Society report 1 in 100 people in the UK suffer from Coeliac disease; a disease for which there is currently no cure.
In the UK there are some alcohol manufacturers that voluntarily identify allergens in their products however, unlike the food industry there is currently no legislation to govern it.
This fact poses particular difficulties and confusion to Coeliac sufferers as well as to people following a plant-based lifestyle.
How can an informed choice be made relating to an alcohol option if the information from the manufacturer isn't readily available on the labelling?
Walker's Bar decided to eliminate the confusion by researching each and every one of its drink options so that its' customers are confident that their choices meets their requirements.
We are members of the Coeliac Society and the Vegan Society and regularly check for updates in the industry to ensure our advice and our suggestions are always accurate.
What does that mean for our customers?
It means that whatever the dietary requirement or alternative lifestyle there is always an option available across our complete range of drinks including; draught and bottled lager and ciders, wines, spirits and of course our fizz.
We always have to hand the current evidential information to satisfy any customer query.
At Walker's Bar we love dressing up!!
We love to be able to match your theme; making a real impact at your event.
Say for example that your heart is set on Pirate theme for your event or party and you looking to have sand, palm trees, and a reggae band......we would talk you about how you would want the bar (and staff!) to look, we'd discuss with you Caribbean themed cocktails and drinks to compliment and enhance the event and to add to the whole atmosphere you're looking to create.
At events such as Weddings, Engagements, Anniversaries we are more than happy to dress the bar for example with centrepiece-style arrangements, organza swags and hanging flowers in your chosen colours and we can even recreate drinks that have a special meaning to the special couple ....
The options are only as limited as your, and our imagination!
Walker's Bar are committed to preserving our environment and for creating a sustainable future. We only use environmentally friendly, compostable 'glassware' made by BioPac that are made from 100% organic matter. Our napkins and straws are bio-degradable and of a non-plastic composition.
**Glass drinkware is available on request
