For those that wish to enjoy a glass of Champagne with their afternoon tea, we will be offering Joseph Perrier Cuvée Royale Brut Champagne NV by the glass. For generations, this Champagne has been a favourite of the Royal family, in particular, The Prince of Wales, Queen Victoria and Edward VII.
A written letter and its typed translation addressed to St James’s Palace below extends proof of the Royal family’s link with Joseph Perrier champagne back in the late 1800s. Rather interestingly, the reference to 2 ½ per percent confirms that champagne back then was drunk sweeter than it is now, and suggests that perhaps a series of different dosage levels were offered.
