The Tulip is the brainchild of entrepreneur James Nash and is being marketed through his Wine Innovations company.

ICB managing director John Mills said: “The Tulip is a brilliant value-added concept and will revolutionise the single-serve wine offering. This is an occasion and packaging-led format that appeals to consumers who want convenience and a pleasurable wine-drinking experience.”?The Italian Job Tulip is available in Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese Merlot and Sangiovese Rosé.
