Oddbirds non-alcoholic takeover at Zetter Townhouses
Oddbird is on a mission to transform drinking culture by producing world-class beverages, just without the alcohol. Founded in 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden, Oddbird wines are all vegan friendly and contain 1/10th of the calories you’d find in a normal glass of wine.
A non-alcoholic wine and cocktail takeover of Zetter Townhouses in Marylebone and Clerkenwell will be taking place in London for the month of January. Oddbird will be offering guests the opportunity to taste Oddbird wines by the glass along with a range of non-alcoholic cocktails made with Oddbird Spumante, Blanc de Blancs, Sparkling Rosé and the newly launched and world-first non-alcoholic Low Intervention Organic Red and White Wines.
For those unsure of the definition of a ‘low intervention’ or ‘natural wine’, natural wine is a wine that has been produced with minimal intervention from the winemaker. That could be hand picking grapes instead of using machinery. Oddbird produces quality wine in France and Italy using traditional methods. The finest grapes from the best vineyards are selected at the right level of maturity and then fermented in the same way as sparkling wine to ensure Oddbird’s unique taste and high quality. These Low Intervention Organic wines produce over six times less CO2 impact than wine from the average vineyard resulting in 0.08kg of CO2 for a 75cl bottle compared to 0.53kg of CO2 for wine produced at the average vineyard.
Zetter Townhouse’s Afternoon Teas will be paired with Oddbird’s premium sparkling wines, offering guests an opportunity to taste Oddbird alongside delicious sandwiches, cakes and scones. Afternoon Tea will be available at The Zetter Marylebone Tuesday to Sunday and The Zetter Clerkenwell on Saturdays and Sundays only. All Zetter Hotel guests will also be offered a complimentary glass of Oddbird or an Oddbird cocktail during their stay.
Oddbird Spumante, Blanc de Blancs, Sparkling Rosé and the new Low Intervention Organic Red and White Wines will be available by the glass along with a range of Oddbird cocktails, liberated from alcohol including:
Breakfast at Tiffany’s – £10
Breakfast Croissant infusion, topped with Oddbird Blanc de Blancs
