English Sparkling’ was officially announced as a new colour this week by the Pantone Color Institute, following a collaboration with Laithwaite’s Wine.
The creamy, white-gold hue developed by Pantone was inspired by Laithwaite’s own Wyfold Vineyard Brut, the retailer said.
‘Creating an official colour is a great way of acknowledging the ever-growing popularity of the English wine industry around the world,’ said David Thatcher, CEO of Laithwaite’s Wine.
The retailer said that paint producer Valspar has logged ‘English Sparkling’ in its database, used by B&Q homeware stores in the UK.
New Jersey-based Pantone is best known for standardising colour reproduction via its Pantone Matching System (PMS), which is used worldwide by graphic designers and printing houses for paper, fabric and digital creations. It also offers consulting services on custom colour use for brands and companies.
