Champagne-'Clicqnic'

We live in a take-away society. No matter whether it’s coffee, sandwiches or pizza - each has its ready-to-go version. The latest development in this trend is from the grand champagne house Veuve Clicquot, who can offer today’s travellers a small briefcase - with sparkling contents.

The Clicquot Traveller is a bottle of champagne – ‘Yellow Label’ – carefully packaged with two glasses in a bespoke carrying case (made of Neoprene, probably suitable for a Moon voyage). Its high-tech design ensures the contents remain at just the right temperature at all times.

So what do you do with your Clicquot Traveller once the contents have been consumed? The insides of the case can be removed by a clever system, and the Traveller can be transformed into a small carrying case that’s just right for partying in New York, Paris or Shanghai. And of course you can ask at the bar "A glass of Veuve to go please..."
