Famed as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is currently home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and is set in more than 2,000 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens.
Britain's oldest catering company
Searcys can be traced back to the vision of one man: Victorian entrepreneur and the Duke of Northumberland’s confectioner, John Searcy. He honed his skills catering at private parties for royalty and high society – and word soon spread of his talent. After ten years of service to the Duke and Duchess, he set up his very own hospitality company in 1847. Before long, he became the most sought-after caterer in the area, renowned for his artistry and attention to detail.

The first mention of Searcys Own Cuvée dates back to 1893. That year’s catalogue called attention to the Champagne specially prepared for and shipped by Searcys, the De Garnier et Cie 1893 vintage at 66s a dozen bottles.
