Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning English monarch, ends each night with a glass of champagne.
Her majesty’s cousin Margaret Rhodes reports that Elizabeth II drinks at least one glass of champagne before bed. The exact brand of her nightly libation is unknown, it’s almost certainly one of the eight brands that have been granted royal warrants, including Bollinger, Krug, Lanson, and Pol Roger.
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.
Moët & Chandon is toasting their relationship with the Queen by producing an exclusive “Diamond Jubilee Cuvee”.
Moët & Chandon has held the Royal Warrant since 1893 during the Queen Victoria period. This recognition was reaffirmed in 1955 when Moët & Chandon was granted the Royal Warrant by HM Queen Elizabeth II, which has been maintained over the last fifty-seven years.
Moët & Chandon has created exclusive cuvees for both the Silver and Golden Jubilee celebrations. On this occasion, the Royal Household has given approval for the bottles to be sold. Diamond Jubilee bottles of Moët & Chandon Impérial will be available to purchase at Waitrose, Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Berry Brothers & Rudd.
Jo Thornton, Managing Director of Moët Hennessy UK said, “Moët & Chandon is honoured to toast HM Queen Elizabeth’s remarkable reign with exclusive labels to commemorate and celebrate the Diamond Jubilee”.
