Food & Wine | Veuve Clicquot launches Rich in Canada & we are stocking up!

I sat down and realized today that we haven’t stopped since Julio & I got back from Mexico on our #HelloExperience… it’s been a busy summer and it’s only getting busier! Last week I had the chance to celebrate the launch of Veuve Clicquot‘s newest product, Veuve Clicquot Rich, which officially has launched in Canada. This new product, the first for the Champagne maison in a very long time, is all about the summer cocktail and inspiring you to get creative. We’ve already stocked up our fridge at home for friends, family and romantic nights in together. Come & see why you should do the same with Veuve Clicquot’s full range of products including Rich.

The recent celebrations in Canada are not only for a new innovative way to make cocktails, but also because the iconic Veuve Clicquot is not known to release new products very often. So when something new is released after years of aging and tasting, you KNOW it’s bound to be delicious!

“In the history of Champagne, wines that were blended for greater sweetness were customarily described as “rich”. Even the 1840s bottles of Veuve Clicquot found recently in the Aland Islands have over 150 grams per liter of sugar. Today Veuve Clicquot propels this tradition into the contemporary era with RICH, a champagne dedicated to mixology.

Bringing a cocktail spirit to a House already known for audacity and innovation, Veuve Clicquot RICH is an invitation to en-RICH the tasting experience with a So Clicquot twist. From mountains to oceans, rooftops to canyons, winter or summer, day or night, Veuve Clicquot RICH is perfect anyway, anywhere and anytime.”



Onto the Toronto Islands I went to cheers to the new product with a small group of media pre- #ClicquotRich festivities. I learnt that the new Veuve Clicquot Rich is much sweeter than it’s Veuve cousins. The flavours illustrated in the playful video above (including delicious Earl Grey tea from DAVIDsTEA) all had different layers of complexity in the refreshing effervescence of Rich. The whole attitude of Rich is to make an elevated cocktail with a premium product that enhances the senses. Each ingredient was articulated differently and left me intrigued, which is not an easy task for someone who tries many new cocktails a week.

Did I mention the bottle also glows in black light? Ready for those beautiful summer days and warm summer nights here in Canada!
