Businesses are getting behind a pilot to introduce smaller wine glasses across East Dunbartonshire.

Over 90 licensees are the first in Scotland to trial a campaign offering 125ml measures alongside the more traditional 175ml and 250ml glasses.

Elaine Smith, proprietor at the Torrance Inn, said: “We introduced the 125ml before the campaign. It means you still have a great dining experience and cut back on the amount you drink.

“We’re not saying you need to drink to enjoy yourself. We got rid of the single serve bottles and now our staff let our customers know that this 125ml glass is available.”

Mark Currie, of the Boclair House Hotel, added: “Since we opened in March we’ve been offering our guests more choice with the 125ml wine measure and they’re proving to be very popular.

“For an establishment like Boclair House Hotel, where it’s all about providing our guests with a first class experience, offering a range of choices makes absolute sense, so we’re fully behind the Scottish Alcohol Industry Partnership campaign.”

As part of the initiative there’s a luxury stay at the Boclair House Hotel to be won - buy this week’s paper for all the details.
