Banks Brothers to launch premium canned wine brand

Banks Brothers

The people behind Michelin-starred restaurants The Black Swan and Roots will launch a new premium canned wine brand.

Tommy and James Banks, along with business partner Matt Lockwood, are the trio behind the idea.

Available from July, the Bank Brothers brand will launch with a Syrah Mourvèdre and a Chardonnay, both made with grapes sourced from small growers in South Africa.

The two wines will be available in 250ml cans, with more limited editions to follow later this year. They will be priced at £21 for three, £40 for six or £78 for 12 with a minimum order of three.    

“I often feel like one or two decent glasses of wine but don’t want to open a special bottle,” said James Banks, as reported by

“These cans will be perfect for those occasions at home or when heading out to the beach or for a picnic. The wine world can seem stuffy and that’s not our vibe. We’re here to prove that amazing quality wine can be drunk anywhere, by anyone.” 

Tommy Banks added: “For us, it’s all about putting flavour first. We will only put the best in our cans, sourcing amazing wine from like-minded people.”
