Why Is Champagne the “Drink of Celebration”? 

Champagne has become a ubiquitious part of celebratory events, including birthdays, anniveraries and, of course, New Year’s Eve. But why is this delicious sparkling wine associated with celebrations? 

Invented by accident in the 17th Century, according to legend, champagne quickly became a favourite of the French nobility due to its cost and novelty, and was often consumed at parties. 

As the industry grew more people in France were able to enjoy the effervescent taste of champagne, and thanks to the ease of shipping brought about by the Industrial Revolution it quickly spread further abroad. 

Nowadays no party is complete without a glass (or two) of  champagne to make any moment feel even more special.
