Keep your bubbly chilled with eco-friendly cover
MOVE over, run-of-the-mill carboard wine-bottle packaging. Here's one cover that not only looks classy, but is also eco-friendly.
French champagne brand Veuve Clicquot has come up with 100 per cent biodegradable isothermal packaging made with potato starch and recycled paper, according to AFP Relaxnews.
Created by French designer Cedric Ragot, the Naturally Clicquot cover can keep a bottle of the brand's Brut Carte Jaune chilled for up to two hours.
The cover goes on sale around the world from next month, in a set with a bottle of Brut Carte Jaune for 43 euros (S$72).
This is not the first time that Veuve Clicquot has come up with a quirky - yet functional - accessory for its upmarket bubbly.
In 2011, Belgian designer Mathias Van De Walle created a foldable origami-style champagne bucket that could be reused up to four times.
The bucket is meant to keep champagne on ice and features an angular form which can be folded up for easy transport, use and storage, said Trendsupdates.com.
