WHY BUY A MAGNUM?
It is easy to see why a magnum of Champagne is an attractive choice for special occasions. Dramatic, generous, and so much more fun than ordering two standard bottles! Across our Searcys venues, from Iris bar at The Gherkin to the Champagne bar at St Pancras, we are focussing our efforts on celebrating magnums this winter. There is no denying magnums are impressive, but there is more to ‘large formats’ than just pure show.
They are an instant showstopper
Then there is the aesthetic argument. Let’s face it, a magnum is the ultimate upgrade to a party, and they are incredibly ‘Instagrammable’. Their very magnitude portrays a sense of occasion, celebration and grandeur. Guests love the theatre, making them the perfect prop as well as getting your brand splashed across social media. Who can resist having their picture taken with a giant bottle of Champagne? The Searcys Cuvée makes a great conversation point.
Champagne ages better in a magnum bottle!
It is not all about looks. Champagne poured from a magnum actually tastes better, according to our experts. While a magnum contains twice the volume of a standard bottle, it will always have the same neck size. This means that the Champagne matures more slowly and for a longer period of time, resulting in a more complex and harmonious taste.
They are more practical
Magnums are often better value for money for dinner parties and private dining. By offering 12 glasses per bottle, magnums are ideally streamlined for larger groups. Rather than having to open a new bottle every few minutes, larger formats make a lot of sense for big tables and celebrations.
Winston Churchill famously and allegedly commented ‘A magnum is the perfect size for two gentlemen to share over lunch…especially if one of them isn’t drinking.’ We will drink to that!
