Over 25,000 bottles of Champagne Lanson were sold over the two-week period at Wimbledon.
Each bottle sold came with its own Wimbledon-themed neoprene jacket, in either white, pink or purple, created specifically for this year’s event.
The 2013 tournament marked Lanson’s 25th anniversary of being the official Champagne of Wimbledon and it was announced during the championships that Lanson has signed on for another five years.
“It has been an incredible two weeks, and in all the years we’ve been here, this one goes down as a vintage year thanks to Andy Murray’s incredible performance. We’ll be sending him a few magnums to celebrate,” said Paul Beavis, managing director of Lanson International UK.
Lanson appropriately became the official Champagne supplier to Wimbledon in 1977, the last time there was a British singles winner at the event, when Virginia Wade won the women’s tournament.
Pernod Ricard’s presented a limited-edition magnum of GH Mumm Champagne to Queen Elizabeth II today as part of her coronation celebrations.
The Cordon Rouge non-vintage, one of six bespoke bottles, was handed to the Queen today during the Royal Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace. A second bottle will be auctioned for the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.
The 60th anniversary label was designed by Sally Mangum, a QEST awardee.
Veuve Clicquot has joined the biodegradable packaging revolution with a 100% biodegradable way to store a bottle of champagne, and keeping it chilled. “Naturally Clicquot” was created by designer Cédric Ragot using recyclable paper and potato starch.
With the isothermal properties, the packaging will keep the champagne chilled for up to 2 hours after it’s taken out of the ice bucket or refrigerator.
