chlawsonOver 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.
