Champagne is about celebration, its about a brief moment of excess, some luxury to acknowledge an occasion. Champagne is one of life’s few luxuries where bigger is definitely better, where super sized can often be seen as super vulgar, champagne is the exception.
The magnum is the equivalent of two standard bottles and should serve twelve, but that depends on the person pouring and the company being kept.
- Bottle, the standard 75cl that most people will be familiar with, this is enough for six glasses.
- Magnum, from the latin for ‘great’ a 1.5l bottle, double the standard size contains around 12 glasses
- Jeroboam, with the Jeroboam we take our first step into mythology and history, named after the 1st King of Isreal, this bottle is 3l and will fill 24 glasses
- Rehoboam, 36 glasses can be filled by this 4.5l bottle, named after the grandson of King David, ruler of Judah in the 10th Century BC.
- Methuselah, 6 litres of champagne, enough to give 64 people a glass full. Named after the Old testemants character who supposedly lived to 969 years of age, which is as impressive as the size of this bottle.
- Salmanazar, named after 13th and 8th Century BC kings this bottle holds 9 litres of champagne, that’s 12 standard bottles or 72 glasses, which would make for a rather interesting night in.
- Balthazar, 12 litres, 16 standards size bottles or 96 glasses. Named after one of the three kings to visit Jesus.
- Nebuchadnezzar, named after the most powerful of all Babylonian kings this enormous bottle holds 15 litres, 20 standard bottles or 120 glasses, truly a sight to behold.
