Yes that’s right, it’s National Champagne Week from 1st-7th October. We’re always welcoming an excuse to crack open the bubbly in the EAUX office, so we were very excited to hear about the event.
Founded by Searcys in London back in 2011, the company offers many fun events to get involved with during this week.
Hospitality experts and connoisseurs in all things bubbly, Searcys will be hosting a week long Champagne Safari to include a glitzy Opening Party on Saturday 1st October in collaboration with a with a selection of major Champagne Houses and drinks partner Sipsmith.
Along with tastings punctuated by delicious gastronomic pairings and expert master classes, during the week Searcys will celebrate the diversity of Champagne. Through a variety of approachable and accessible experiences with a focus on France, they will take guests on a journey through the Champagne region at different events across the city. Guests will be given their own Champagne Passport where they can stand to win prizes throughout the week whilst sipping on Champagne – if you’re in London this week, this sounds like something you should definitely not miss out on!
Other events will take place during this week such as master classes with top chefs, sampling with engaging sommeliers, and an informal quiz and fizz night – this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate France and England’s love of Champagne.
