Champagne | A Toast to Luxury

When it comes to celebrating life’s big occasions, there’s no drink more suited to the task than Champagne.



Born in the heart of France’s historic Champagne region, this effervescent delight has become synonymous with celebration the world over. Whether you’re raising a glass to ring in the New Year, or toasting the happy couple at a wedding, Champagne’s scintillating sparkles lend that extra air of decadence and luxury.

Among the most recognisable brands, Moet et Chandon’s Dom Pérignon was named in honour of the 17th century Benedictine monk credited with making significant advancements in Champagne production. The brand made its debut with a 1921 vintage, and since then it has upheld its commitment to crafting the very finest cuvées, only releasing vintage expressions in years where the growing conditions have been exceptional.


Similarly revered is Louis Roederer’s Cristal, a brand that dates from 1876 when it was produced to satisfy the demanding tastes of Russian Tsar, Alexander II. Tsar Alexander demanded Roederer’s very best cuvée each year, which were presented to him in flat-bottomed lead-crystal decanters, from which the brand now takes its name. As with Dom Perignon, only the finest vintages are bottled, ensuring the brand’s quality and exclusivity.

Champagne has become more than just a drink, it’s a symbol of celebration that can elevate any event with an added touch of class. Accept no substitutes.
