Drink producers get new website

British cider, wine and spirits makers are taking advantage of extra promotion through a new website, drinkbritain.com.

The site is being introduced initially to the trade sector, but a consumer launch will follow next spring. The aim is to help visitors discover beer, cider, wine and spirits producers region by region and encourage an appreciation of the history and production methods of some of Britain's finest drinks.

Founder and editor Susanna Forbes said: "We know that the best way to appreciate the value of a drink is to see how it is made - the ingredients, the traditional methods, the modern innovations and the people behind the labels."

English wine producer Geoff Bowen of Pebblebed Vineyards said: "The English wine industry is gaining momentum with considerable investment going into both vineyards and wineries. Drinkbritain.com is helping by not only raising the profile of English wines but also pulling together the British drinks industry, providing a more coordinated marketing approach."
