Those of you who know me, not only know that I don’t drink; but that I have never had alcohol- or a cigarette for that matter. This is a little factoid that will never change. However, it is my job to stay abreast on the latest and greatest hot products on the upscale market. This includes cigars, alcohols, and an abundance of other luxury items. Today I will be talking about champagne. Or should I say, the new “King of Bubbly”
It’s called Armand de Brignac. This little known luxury bottle of bubbly goodness, burst on the scene when rapper, and luxury aficionado,
Jay-Z chose it as his replacement for Cristal. He obviously felt disrespected when the general manager of Cristal proclaimed his displeasure for all the love his champagne was getting from the rap community. Well as the old saying goes, “1 man’s loss is another man’s gain.” The new king is undoubtedly loving being on top. According to Cahal Milmo of Herald.ie. Just 36 months since it first appeared, Armand De Brignac will mark its success in muscling in on some of the hardest-fought turf in the €3.26 bn global champagne business by selling out its entire production run of 60,000 bottles. Not bad for a micro operation that employs just 20 people.
Known in the inner circles of the uber rich as Ace of Spades for it’s pewter logo which looks like the ace of spades,Armand de Brignac goes for a cool $250-$280 a bottle. So if you are ready to step your luxury spirit game up and want to play like the big boys. You know what to buy.
Until next time,
God Bless and Dress Well,
