Specific Conditions Relating to the Purchase of Alcohol content Communion Wines:

It is an offence for any person under 18 to buy or attempt to buy intoxicating drinks.  We will not sell to anyone who is not 18 years of age or over, as the law requires.  By placing an order you are confirming that you are 18 or over.  If you are making a purchase as a gift, then the recipient must also be over 18 years old.

Sacramental wine or altar wine is simply wine obtained from grapes and intended for use in celebration of the Eucharist (referred to also as the Lord's Supper). The same wine, if intended for use in ceremonies of non-Christian religions or for ordinary use, would not normally be described by these terms.

Altar wine, or wine appropriate for use during communion, has been defined in many ways over the centuries, subject to certain criteria. The Code of Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church (1983), Canon 924 (emphasis added):  The most holy Sacrifice of the Eucharist must be celebrated in bread, and in wine to which a small quantity of water is to be added.  The wine must be natural, made from grapes of the vine, and not corrupt.

From The Code of Canon Law in English translation, prepared by The Canon Law Society Of Great Britain And Ireland In Association With The Canon Law Society Of Australia And New Zealand And The Canadian Canon Law Society. English translation copyright 1983 The Canon Law Society Trust, Sixth edition 2000.

1) The added spirit (alcohol) must have been distilled from the grape (ex genimime vitis);

(2) the quantity of alcohol added, together with that which the wine contained naturally after fermentation, must not exceed eighteen per cent of the whole;

(3) the addition must be made during the process of fermentation (S. Romana et Univ. Inquis., 5 August, 1896).

Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

(Matthew 26: 26-28)

Fairtrade Wines:

Poterion is the world’s first Fairtrade Communion Wine that was created together  with one of South Africa’s leading Fairtrade wine estates, Stellar. The wine is made in two styles: a deep Red made from the noble Cabernet Sauvignon grape, and  a golden Amber made from  Muscat grapes, all  of which are  grown in Stellar’s vineyards in the Olifants River region of the Western Cape. Both are lightly fortified to 15% alcohol to give the wine longevity  and have  enhanced  natural grape sugars  to  give them  a balancing sweetness similar to a port.

Disposable communion cups have been providing a hygienic and a time saving solution for church communion services for a long time. A single use cup that can be thrown away so no washing up is necessary like multi use cups.

However, there is a huge downside in that they are not biodegradable, being made from polystyrene. Technically they are

recyclable, but in reality local authorities will only recycle plastic bottles. This mean they impact the environment significantly. Because of this, it is our commitment to discontinue the plastic types in due course...The good news is that we now supply disposable communion cups that are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable made from Corn Plastic. So you can use these cups safe in the knowledge that they are not harming the environment.
