*The Coop Cava received
many nominations for Best Drink in The Vegan Society's prestigious
Diamond Jubilee Awards.
the Co-op Cava ingredients
have changed and it now uses gelatine in it's manufacture"
Says Vegan spokesperson Tony Bishop-Weston.
"There was a good
chance of it winning as The Vegan Society has been busy celebrating
it's 60th year during 2004 and we've drunk quite a bit of bubbly,
but not this one now it's made with gelatine"
are the only retailer to honestly label their alcoholic
beverages in this way and ironically if it had been anyone
else the vegans might not have been aware that the ingredients
had been changed and it was no longer a suitable celebratory drink.
