Default Is Youngs Sparkling wine yeast the same as Champagne yeast?

Please forgive the noob question, but I want to make ginger beer and the recipe I got from this awesome forum said to use champagne yeast. Is this the same as Youngs Sparkling wine yeast? Just want to make sure before I get things going!

Well I've never seen a Young's Sparkling Wine yeast and have found nothing online other than their Champagne yeast.

But as you can't actually make Champagne unless you live in a very specific part of France it would make sense to re-package that yeast.

Champagne is just sparkling wine so I think the two yeasts are much the same.
