Sir Winston Churchill
Winston Churchill was partial to the odd champagne when not fighting the war. He believed that Pol Roger was a amazing champagne that all should enjoy, it should also be known that the brand was funding the war effort at the time but never the less the brand was known across the country for making the finest champagne. the champagne its self would have cost a mere £40 in modern currency but with the war going on and most of the worlds funds being plunged into the conflict it is no wonder that it was such a small amount. He is said to have thought very highly of the Americans, claiming that “Meeting Franklin Roosevelt is like opening your first bottle of champagne; knowing him personally is like drinking it.”
This man likes his bottles of champagne to be immaculate in every sense from the crisp taste to the packaging it comes in. he drinks Louis Roederer Cristal to be able to get this sense of pleasure. One bottle alone comes in at just over 26,000 pounds and has a 24 karat gold packaging. It is of no surprise that they only come around at 200 bottles a year. He is said to be very fond of the bottles saying that a little moderation is good for some but his life is not one for moderation.
