Have you ever asked yourself, why do we drink champagne on New Year’s eve?  The answer is short and simple. 

It’s all about the sound. 

The bottles became perfect for popping on New Year’s Eve because of their celebratory “pop”. The price of champagne then declined, and producers started marketing it to common folk in the 1800s.

Now in 2020, things have changed a lot, but one thing’s for sure, we still like a bottle of bubbly on New year’s eve.

As we toast our loved ones virtually this year, don’t pass up the opportunity to share the joy of a new beginning and kiss 2020 goodbye with a good bottle of bubbly.

We fully understand that this bottle might be on everyone’s list, but if it is, you can guarantee a lavish get together even if you are just living it up in the comfort of your own home. It’s a vintage champagne. It’s an investment. But after all, you got through 2020, so we think you deserve it. Whether you are toasting your partner, sipping on bubbles with your family or just indulging in some “me” time this is an option that tastes as good as it sounds. 

And whilst, we all have a little extra time on our hands, why not learn how to drink your champagne like an expert? 

The Dos

  • Keep it in a cool, dry place

While many people may instinctively place a bottle of champagne in the fridge, it’s actually preferable to keep it in a cool, dry place.

  • Serve it with dessert

Champagne is frequently offered as a welcome drink at events, with wine then offered throughout a meal.

The Don’ts

  • Drink champagne by itself

Adding other ingredients to champagne, such as mint or lemon peel, can really enhance the flavour. Giving you that zesty after taste.

  • Chill your champagne for too long

The experts advise not chilling champagne for a long period of time in the fridge as it isn’t as pleasant to drink if it’s too cold.

  • Save the champagne for a significant occasion

The majority of champagne isn’t vintage, meaning that it’s sold during the time in which it’s ideal for it to be consumed.

With that in mind, don’t succumb to the temptation to hold onto purchased champagne for years on end. Enjoy it!
