Booze that is clearly labelled vegan or has been confirmed as vegan.
Still collecting photo, please send info via the vegan womble chat room if possible.
Often animal parts are used in the fining process such as isinglass, which is fish bladders. Carmine is in drinks such as Campari. It comes under many other names such as Crimson Lake, Natural Red 4, Cochineal to name but a few. If you see a bright red drink (also found in lipsticks/food colouring too), chances are it could well be beetles. Dairy is sometimes used in alcohol, as is egg albumen and gelatine. Honey is also often found in drinks.

They clearly label, but it is questionable. Their vegan product list – the wording says
None of their vegan products ‘contain’ animal derived ingredients. With regards alcohol – while animal ingredients are used in the refining process it’s widely accepted than none remain in the alcohol itself and that’s why it’s not listed as an ingredient. They have been emailed with no response.
These eight liquors are not all labelled vegan, however they are all on the vegan M & S list.

This is one of the vegan wines, but they are not labelled vegan, you have to check the list.
First look to see if its vegetarian and check they is any allergy info for eggs and milk which they have to list by law. Good chance its vegan if its clear of allergens, then just check the list. Although they have started labelling them as vegan, so hopefully all will be soon.
this finest wine is actually labelled vegan too!
