Forword

Front Cover, Cunard Wine List from April 1927

The selection of wines, and especially those intended for consumption on shipboard, calls for the nicest judgment and experience. Ocean travellers are essentially cosmopolitan in their tastes, and in catering for their requirements the Cunard Steam Ship Company has endeavoured to place on board their steamers an assortment of wines of the highest excellence. Their long experience has been ably assisted by the best expert skill, with the result that the wines listed are of irreproachable quality.

The same high standard is also maintained in spirits, liqueurs and mineral waters ; and the cigars and cigarettes are the best known brands and most carefully selected.

The wine which perhaps calls for the most discrimination is champagne, the vintages being subject to vagaries other than those of soil and climate, and connoisseurs will agree that the selection the Company offers is unsurpassed.
