WINE ON TAP
THE EVOLUTION OF WINE BY THE GLASS
HOW IT WORKS
WHY WINE ON TAP?
Most wines are drunk within 12 months of bottling & a huge amount of energy is used filling & packaging each bottle. Each recyclable keg eliminates 26 bottles, labels, corks and closures.
Wine On Tap ensures that wine reaches your glass exactly as the winemaker intended, in the same state as when it left the winery, with the last glass always as fresh as the first.
With Wine On Tap there's no corked wine, no oxidation, and no danger of getting that last glass of stale wine that's been sitting behind the bar since the weekend.
With the money saved on transport & packaging, the same wines cost around 20% less than in bottle.
Twice as much wine fits on a pallet, meaning half as many trucks on the road, and half the carbon footprint.
We collect used kegs from our customers and return them to the manufacturer to be turned into fresh ones.

Who We Work With
The Kinder Way To Drink Wine
The majority of wine is drunk within a year of bottling. We don’t think that justifies all of the bottles, corks, labels, capsules and closures. A 20 litre keg of wine is the equivalent of 26.6 bottles and wine, and reduces packaging waste by 94%. We took over 375 tonnes of glass alone out of the recycling chain in 2019, and we’re just getting started.
Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
We can fit twice as much wine on a truck when it’s packaged in keg instead of in bottle. That means half as many trucks on the road, and a reduced carbon footprint for our customers by an average of 20%. And in 2020 we’ve done more.
This year we’ve introduced circular recycling, which sees our used kegs collected, crushed and sent back to the manufacturer to be turned into new ones, bringing our wine on tap systems even closer to zero waste. We’re currently servicing Dublin, Louth, Meath, Cavan, Monaghan, Kildare, Laois, Wexford, Waterford, Kilkenny, Carlow, Wicklow, Tipperary, Galway and Westport. More areas coming soon.
