Ever since Buzz Aldrin uttered the iconic words “no Neil, after you,” astronauts have been eager to find a compelling way to toast their incredible feats.
Come September 2018, G.H. Mumm will release Mumm Grand Cordon Stellar, finally making it possible for space travellers to enjoy champagne in zero gravity. Stellar employs a revolutionary new bottle and glass designed by Spade – an agency specialised in creating objects for use in space.
The innovative bottle uses the champagne’s gas to expel liquid into a ring-shaped frame, where it’s concentrated into a droplet of bubbles. The champagne can then be passed to someone and released into the air, where it floats until gathered up in a specially designed glass.
The novelty continues when the champagne enters the mouth. The foam transforms itself into liquid. In zero gravity, the liquid instantly coats the entire inside of the mouth, magnifying the taste sensations.
There’s less fizziness and more roundness and generosity, enabling the wine to express itself fully. The result intensifies and concentrates the Pinot Noir in an explosion of ripe and juicy fruit aromas.
The Stellar bottle is crafted from transparent glass and embellished with the Mumm Grand Cordon distinctive red sash. Along with a range of exciting new taste characteristics, the first mission to Mars won’t be as dull or arduous as previously suspected.
