Rick, AKA Richard Kelley MW, tha man behind The Liberator series, would be the first person to embrace innovation and help pioneer new formats. The wine trade have been speculating about the future of wine in cans for some time now. Many have tipped them to be the ‘next best thing’ whilst others would not be seen dead opening a ‘cold one’.
Liberator fans will be able to enjoy the same diverse selection of wines, produced mostly in small finite quantities, as they would expect to find in conventional Liberator bottles. It will simply allow more drinkers an opportunity to experiment with wines presented in an alternative and convenient single serve format, rather than having to invest in opening a whole bottle. Chenin No 5 represents a first step. An experiment in acceptance.
