Kosher wine in T5 or onboard BA first

Is Kosher wine available in any of the BA lounges (concord room?) or on board ex LHR?

Can you request it? Do Hermolis supply with their meal?

Thanks!

No firsthand experience in F but when I have flown AA in J and BA in CW (both ex-LHR) there has been a small bottle of red wine included with the Hermolis meals so I imagine F gets it (or something similar) as well.

BA does not provide kosher wine on-board or in any lounges

That just about sums it up. If you're flying ex-TLV then you can take your own wine on board. In theory it's not allowed (BA's licence to serve alcoholic drinks means that only they can provide it) - but in practice I've never had a problem.

But no kosher wine for Hermolis KSMLs. Someone at BA told me that supplier couldn't provide it. Complete rubbish, of course - as Hermolis can definitely do it, as Asher13 points out. The meals that Hermolis provide to AA in J/F (actually its usually the same meal) do usually include a quarter bottle of OK-ish Kedem or similar wine.

Ah, how I remember the good old days when one could take on board one's own wine at LHR. In particular, a very memorable flight to SFO with a friend sharing an excellent bottle of Claret. I think it was a 95 Chateau Smith.
