Today we thought we’d share our Top 10 vegan alcoholic drinks for those of you who may be enjoying a tipple this new years eve. Alcohol is one of those pesky ‘hidden’ pitfalls when it comes to veganism. You’d be forgiven for thinking that something as simple as wine would always be vegan - it’s just grapes, right?! Sadly, there are some outdated practices in the alcohol industry which involve using milk, egg whites, isinglass (dried swim bladders of fish) and even gelatin to filter and clarify the end product. Yuck!

Finding vegan perfume on the high street can be tough - lots of the big name brand perfumes are made by brands who test on animals, and it can be tough to find out for sure which brands are vegan and which aren’t. Marks and Spencer is a perhaps surprising mecca for cruelty free and vegan beauty products, and their collection with Rosie Huntington Whitely - Rosie for Autograph, is no exception.

Just because you’ve decided to ditch meat and give up dairy it certainly doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a traditional Christmas dinner. These festive vegan dishes prove there’s much more to a cruelty free Christmas than a dry nut roast.
