The 11th of June 1967 changed everything.
Especially if you love your bubbly. Read on to find out what I am going on about.
The 11th of June 1967 saw the winner of the Le Mans race, Dan Gurney become the first to celebrate his win by impulsively spraying the crowd with his trophy Jeroboam of Moët & Chandon. There begins a tradition that we still see going strong today. Winning is made just that little bit sweeter by spraying that Moët.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Moët & Chandon celebrated its first ever global Moët Day on the very same day with a host of parties all across the world including Paris, Hong Kong and Mexico. I was invited to ‘celebrate the NOW’ at the London party hosted at the stunning Clipper Bar at the InterContinental and what a party it was!
Moët has been associated with the sparkle of success and glamour ever since the House was founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. This champagne brunch didn’t disappoint at all, with free flowing bubbles and great little canapés going around all afternoon. This year the celebrations also coincided with HM The Queen’s 90th birthday weekend (Moët has been a Royal Warrant holder since 1893 after all). The champagne cocktail making classes and the photo booth took us late into the afternoon with Moët & Chandon proudly living up to its lavish reputation.
Yes, Seb and I might have had to roll ourselves back home after all that beautifully crisp champagne and delicious food but it was so worth it! After all, if there is anything I learnt from the wonderful people at Moët, it was that ‘every second is an experience and every experience is a #MoëtMoment to live now’. I am quite happy living by that philosophy.
Let the champagne flow and spray that Moët!
