New Breed Bottle Shop opens in Loughton
New Breed Bottle Shop, a specialist retailer of craft beers, small batch spirits and wines, has opened a store in Loughton.
Founded by Neil Datta and Mikey O’Kane, the retailer offers a curated mix of beers, ales and lagers on tap to be taken away by a reusable glass bottle or “growler”. In a bid to encourage more sustainable practices, customers are also given the option of bringing back and reusing the growlers for refills of their favourite beers.
Situated at 287 High Road, the shop had a soft opening over the festive period and this week the company
has launched an online shop with nationwide delivery.
The beer on offer will rotate on a regular basis and will include over 200 varieties from all over the UK. The retailer also sells a selection of natural, low intervention and biodynamic wines, as well as more classic bottles from independent and family-run vineyards.
Datta said: “We had an idea for a business that also allowed us to do something we loved. We wanted a place where customers could taste and buy the sort of craft beers, natural wines and artisan spirits that we enjoy. We have sourced quality beverages from independent brewers, growers and distillers from around the UK and customers will get the kind of expert, one-on-one service that the products deserve.”
O’Kane added: “I’ve always loved good quality beers and wines but have found it hard to find what I want on the high street. We want to deliver something new at accessible prices but with a big point of difference.”
