British Airways has opened a new Whispering Angel bar in its lounge at the B gates in Terminal 5, serving the famous rosé that originates in the Provence vineyards of Château d’Esclans.
The opening marks the first phase of British Airways’ continued refresh of this lounge over the summer months, which will include new and reupholstered furniture across the lounge, as well as a new layout.
Across the rest of the airline’s Club (Business Class) lounges at Heathrow and Gatwick, eligible British Airways customers can enjoy The Pale rosé, which is produced by the same winemakers as Whispering Angel.
Whispering Angel is currently available in British Airways’ Concorde, First and Club lounges.
Calum Laming, British Airways’ Chief Customer Officer, said: “We are really excited to open the doors on our new original Whispering Angel bar, just in time for the start of the summer season.
“What’s more, the opening coincides with the exciting news that customers now have the option to pre-order Whispering Angel across all short-haul flights, to take the experience with them, from the ground to the skies.”
The Château d’Esclans team said: “We are ecstatic to finally be able to share our beautiful Whispering Angel bar with British Airways’ customers, and bring a touch of glamour to Heathrow as the world’s most glamorous rosé.
“We look forward to travellers being able to enjoy a delicious glass of Whispering Angel before they fly, in a space that really embodies the effortlessly chic nature of our brand.”
Elsewhere, the airline has introduced a rosé in its First cabin with Whispering Angel’s big brother, Rock Angel.
Whispering Angel’s Provence rosé is also available to pre-purchase through the airline’s newly branded High Life Café (previously Speedbird Café).
In March 2023 British Airways introduced four new English Sparkling Wines served on board.
Each wine is available on a quarterly rotation, changing every three months to customers travelling in Club World.
