ABOUT THE DRINKS MENU
This menu has been designed with the aim of making Bocabar as sustainable as possible. It is not perfect and we continue to try and find solutions to help reduce our carbon footprint. We have searched for creative ideas to reduce the amount and type of waste we produce, while still offering the same high quality of product as before.
Our house gin and vodka are distilled in the heart of the city by the award-winning Bristol Spirits Collective. They are delivered to us direct in large containers which we then decant into glass bottles. The containers are refilled by the Bristol Spirits Collective when needed and the process begins again. As a result we create zero waste when using our most popular spirits, having also greatly reduced their food miles.
We offer a pretty decent range of ciders, lagers, and locally-sourced ales on draught so we thought our packaged beers and ciders should offer something different, rather than duplicate what we already have. This section is therefore split into two categories: low/non-alcoholic and gluten-free. We hope this will reduce the volume of cans and glass bottles we need to recycle without eliminating the choice available.
TYPE OF WASTE
Where possible we source our packaged beer in cans. Cans weigh significantly less than glass bottles translating to a reduction in CO2 emissions during transportation. They are easier to recycle, can be done so indefinitely, and keep the beer fresher by eliminating light damage and reducing oxidation.
Citric acid occurs naturally in all citrus fruits, balancing out the sweetness of syrups and liqueurs used in cocktail production. We have replaced the lemon and lime juice in all our cocktails with a food-grade citric acid solution produced by microbial submerged fermentation. We have thereby reduced the number of citrus fruits we import from overseas and the volume of food waste created by the discarded citrus shells.
Rather than using egg whites in our cocktails we use aquafaba. Aquafaba is the left-over juice from canned chickpeas which mimics the functional properties of egg whites. The kitchen uses the chickpeas and the bar uses the aquafaba, which would otherwise simply be discarded, allowing for closed-loop cocktail production. This also means that most of our cocktail menu is suitable for vegans.
