Bon anniversaire, Veuve Clicquot Rosé. First blended in 1818 by the champagne maison’s founder Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin – a trailblazer in her own right – the drink broke from the tradition of using an elderberry-based mix, and instead blended some of her Bouzy red wines with her still whites. The result was the first known blended rosé champagne ever, and to celebrate the 200-year milestone guests were invited to sip the drink of honour at Sake in Sydney’s Intercontinental Hotel, followed by nightcaps at Mrs Sippy, Double Bay. A toast to the next century.
