Checkers LiquorShop now stocks SA’s favourite MCC and sparkling wine brand House of BNG
Bonang Matheba’s “love letter to Africa” and South Africa’s most sought-after MCC and pure sparkling wine brand, The House of BNG, is now available at 30 selected Checkers LiquorShop outlets nationwide, the group now stocking The House of BNG Rosé MCC and the Nectar range of Blanc and Rosé sparkling wines in a can.
The House of BNG Nectar range – the country’s first true sparkling wine in a can – has been a massive success with over 500,000 cans sold in four months, which excludes the alcohol ban period through Lockdown.
The placement in Checkers LiquorShop comes on the 50th anniversary of the introduction of Méthode Cap Classique in South Africa (which differentiates it from French champagne) and the formation of the Cape Classique Producers Association. Bonang became the first black female member of the association two years ago.
“I’m excited for The House of BNG to now be even more available nationally through Checkers LiquorShops. The brand continues to grow and I’m proud of all the innovations the brand has made over the last two years with more to come!” says Bonang Matheba.
The House of BNG is South Africa’s top-selling MCC and has become the celebration of choice at important events such as the Presidential Inauguration, Miss SA and SA Sports Awards and is also now available in other African countries including Botswana and Namibia.
“We at Checkers LiquorShop are always looking for new innovative and fresh products to offer our customers and therefore we are excited to be working alongside Bonang Matheba and being able to support a local business by giving this unique brand, The House of BNG, the exposure within our LiquorShops,” says Jean Marais, General Manager: LiquorShop, Shoprite Group.
