I never really need an excuse to pop a bottle of bubbly, but if I was ever looking for one, it would have to be a Moët Party with friends the weekend before my Birthday! Acting as the delicious bubbley’s first nationwide celebration, last Saturday saw Moët & Chandon explode onto the streets of Glasgow for a one day spectacular. I was ready to get my day drinking and dancing on and it definitely didn’t disappoint!
Taking place throughout the UK last weekend, Moët wanted to encourage the nation to live in the now by marking the anniversary of the first ever champagne spray moment. Yup, you know that shake shake shake, spray? Back in 1967, racing driver Dan Gurney unexpectedly showered the crowd when he popped open a Jeroboam bottle of Moët & Chandon uponhis triumph at the 24-hour Le Mans race in France. And just like that, a joyous new tradition was born. Loves a factoid, am I right?
Now, almost 50 years on, Moët decided to create with a global party with Glasgow being the host for Scotland, natch! So with my Moët Ice in toe, I grabbed some pals and headed to Ashton Lane to live in the now with my coordinated two piece from Lady K Loves and beaded handbag from Play Purse. I definitely think there is some sort of rivera theme going on with my wardrobe at the moment but it definitely went perfectly with the White Isle feels!
While I am always up for a flute of Moët on it’s own, sometimes simple touches can be the perfect way to turn something special, into something extra special! This summer’s must-try champagne, the new Moët Ice Impérial, also known as ‘La Piscine’ – champagne is served on the rocks with one of three garnishes; mint, grapefruit or cucumber. Personally, the sweet smells and taste of the cucumber made me want to jump straight back on a flight to Barcelona! Fresh, vibrant and oh so tasty, this first-of-its-kind champagne is tailor-made for sharing good vibes with friends, from beachfronts and pool sides to roof tops, or just the back garden! Basically, it’s the perfect summer swallow, creating your very own Moët moments with every delicious taste.
With a bottle of Moët champagne opened every second around the globe, every one is an experience! So tell me, how would you like to spend your #MoetMoment?
