A Norwich cocktail bar has become the first establishment of its kind in the city to serve a range of eco-friendly spirits.

Chambers Cocktail Company, which recently replaced The Lawyer on Wensum Street, has chosen two of its house spirits, Element 29, an English wheat vodka, and Boxer Gin which will now be supplied to the bar in an 'Eco Pouch' made of recycled plastic.

By doing away with the glass bottle the pouch, which is 45pc lighter than a glass bottle, provides major energy and manufacturing savings that can then be passed onto the consumer.

The London-based supply company, Sustainable Spirits, also saves on the production of bottles which comprises a significant portion of the cost of the spirit.

Chambers push in sustainability comes after the Last Plastic Straw Campaign came through Norwich on its global push to encourage food and drink venues to get rid of plastic straws.

The campaign saw several venue owners in the city come together in support of the message.
