How the celebrations will work
The fun week will hopefully give you a new insight into champagne and arm you with new ways of enjoying your favourite fizz. For example, there will be a focus on new food pairings and gastronomy, especially with more modern and unusual foods, such as hotdogs and meatballs. Plus, there will be fun giveaways during the week with a Golden Cork treasure hunt in the capital throughout the week. For those looking for a more traditional insight into champagne, there is also a focus on the history of champagne and the importance of the magnum.
- Searcys will also be re-launching Searcys St. Pancras Grand champagne bar, the longest bar in Europe. Searcys’ exclusive opening party will kick off the week at their luxurious St Pancras Champagne Bar, partnered with iconic Champagne House Taittinger.
- Another feature of this year’s festival is the spotlight on the magnum, as the optimum serve for champagne, versus a standard bottle. This is due to magnums having a better ratio of oxygen to liquid (known as ullage – the space between the drink and the cork). This slower oxidisation increases the Champagne’s freshness, and some say taste. However, if you are an aficionado, I don’t need to tell you that!
- During National Champagne Week, there will be a stellar line up of events at iconic venues in London. Including a ‘Champagne on the Rocks Masterclass’ – a new technique where champagne is slung into large glasses over ice and garnished with a spring of herbs or summer fruits.
- A Champagne Evening at the iconic Vintners Hall with Duval Leroy
- Plus, a rare and finest Champagne tasting at Inner Temple.
