Royal Ascot – A World Like Nowhere Else
At the most Royal of sporting events, it is only fitting that one drinks accordingly. As the only Champagne House to hold the title of Official Champagne at the Royal meeting since Ascot’s founding in 1711, Bollinger has become a Royal rite of passage for keen racegoers for centuries.
As any hedonist would know, the pleasure of Bollinger reaches new heights in the company of good food and great people. Mentzendorff was there with some of our Bollinger friends to soak up five days of world-class racing, pageantry, Fine Dining and of course Champagne Bollinger.
Distinguished excellence has defined Bollinger since established in 1829, a quality recognised by the Court of England by bestowing the House with the first Royal Warrant for Champagne in 1884.
A wealth of shared history with all things quintessentially British, Bollinger is undoubtedly the only refreshment fit for this Royal meet, considered amongst experts as the showcasing the best racing in the World. Champagne Bollinger was operating two elegant bars in the heart of the Royal Enclosure Gardens. The Bollinger 1829 Bar which was situated in the east end of the gardens and the Madame Bollinger Bar in the west end, a short walk from the track and undoubtedly the only place to see and be seen throughout the week. Guests were also able to soak up the pageantry alongside the Pre-parade Ring at the Bollinger Lounge in the Queen Anne enclosure.
