The Perfect Champagne Serve26 January 2021
For centuries, romantic occasions and celebrations have been associated with Champagne. Searcys has a long-standing association with Champagne, since our foundation as an events caterer in 1847. Here is our short guide for a perfect serve as recommended by our Drinks Ambassador, Bruno Pelletier.
Coupes or Flutes?
Reminiscent of the glitz and glamour of the 1920s, the saucer-shaped coupe is the classic glassware first designed for Champagne. Its wide bowl allows the drink to ‘open up’ giving the Champagne a fuller taste. For those who prefer a bit more fizz, experts recommend the flute, which enhances the flow of bubbles and Champagne’s aroma. Whichever you choose, both can be held by the stem to keep them cool and refreshing.
Raise a Toast to Love with Exclusive Searcys Own Champagne
The UK is still the world’s second-largest consumer of Champagne, behind only the French, buying around 27 million bottles each year. 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.
You may be limited as to where you can go out, but Searcys Cuvee rosé or brut can reach you anywhere in the country. Bringing the charm of St Pancras Champagne Bar or The Iris Bar at The Gherkin to homes, each bottle will arrive in a bespoke white and gold box, complete with a personal message. An elegant and fruity pour, the Brut white encompasses aromas of peach and plum with notes of citrus, while the red fruits of the Brut rosé are dominated by strawberry and white flowers aromas. Priced from £39 per bottle plus delivery, Champagne gift boxes are available to order from our online here.
