*The Coop Cava received many nominations for Best Drink in The Vegan Society's prestigious Diamond Jubilee Awards.

"Unfortunately the Co-op Cava ingredients have changed and it now uses gelatine in it's manufacture" Says Vegan spokesperson Tony Bishop-Weston.

"There was a good chance of it winning as The Vegan Society has been busy celebrating it's 60th year during 2004 and we've drunk quite a bit of bubbly, but not this one now it's made with gelatine"

The Co-op are the only retailer to honestly label their alcoholic beverages in this way and ironically if it had been anyone else the vegans might not have been aware that the ingredients had been changed and it was no longer a suitable celebratory drink.
