We charge £12.50 for a regular sized bottle of Wine and £25 for an over-sized bottle such as a Magnum of Champagne. However we are seeing enquiries for smaller sized bottles and so have had to create a Corkage price list for the smaller bottles such as Splits, Quarters and Imperials.
Advice given by Tanners Wine Merchants on bottle sizes:
1. A ¼ bottle is called a ‘split’, but that’s a term more recognisable with minerals (split = 200ml).
2. Al ¼ bottle is a Quarter or 'Single Serve's. These are 187ml or 18.75cl for still wines and 20cl/200ml for sparkling wine.
3. Port you can by in 5cl miniature bottles.
4. Melchior is larger than Nebuchadnezzar, equivalent to 18 litres/24 bottles, versus 15/20 for the Nebuchadnezzar.
5. Some bottle names change depending on where they come from, there can be overlap too. Imperials are usually 6ltr in Bordeaux, but can be 4.5 litres from elsewhere (4.5L is Rehoboam in champagne)
