Lanson was founded in 1760 and is one of the oldest Champagne Houses. The unique and authentic style of the Champagnes rests on 4 immutable pillars: a meticulous selection of Crus; a vinification according to the traditional Champagne principle; a rare collection of reserve wines, and a longer ageing in cellars.
Since 2007 BrewDog has been on a mission to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as they are. From the Headliner series, which includes bold, uncompromising pack leaders like the flagship Punk IPA, to the Amplified range (beer, but turned up to 11), BrewDog brews beer that blows people’s minds and has kick-started a revolution.
In 2020, BrewDog announced that they were the world’s first carbon negative brewery. While we remain committed to reducing our emissions through state-of-the-art brewing technologies, what we can’t reduce, we double offset, which means we take twice as much carbon out of the air as we emit. By ‘Our Carbon’ we mean ALL the greenhouse gasses in both our operations and our supply chain. So that includes everything that is involved in creating our beer and getting it to our customers; ingredients, packaging, transport, and everything else that we do or buy.
BrewDog’s long-term destiny will continue to be shaped by the three things that matter most: People, Planet and Beer.
