You’ve probably seen this name before: lining the liquor aisle with champagne bottles, those well branded plastic white glasses (epic or epic-ally horrible? still up for discussion), or sprayed over sports champions on the top of the podium.
BUT here are 3 fun facts about the Moët et Chandon house, that you may not be familiar with.
1. You pronounce the “t” in Moët. Like “mo-ette” Odd thing to pronounce the “t” right?!? Maybe you’re thinking it’s strangely unFrench. You’re right- bc the name is Dutch 🇳🇱 2. The grandson of Claude Moët was besties with Napoleon, but his grandfather established a relationship with the royal court long before
3. While they don’t straight out tell you their annual production, it’s rumored to be in the 30,000,000 bottles a year ballpark. That’s more than 82,000 a day. If you were on a mission, let loose in their tunnels, that’d be almost 3400 bottles of champagne to drink per hour or 57 per minute. Champagne dream or nightmare?
