Epicurean delight: Rolls-Royce launches Champagne Chest
The latest addition to the Rolls-Royce accessory portfolio embodies the philosophy, handcraftsmanship and characteristic of the marque by design, but the Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest isn’t just for aesthetics.
The Champagne Chest by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has been designed as a social accessory to enhance special occasions. Luxury by design and use, it has been created to match the tastes of its patrons.
Combine the finest materials with pinnacle engineering, and you have the £37,000.00 social accessory – intended to delight and endow conviviality in equal measure. Suitable for the most extravagant of environments from a superyacht to the terrace of a private residence, the Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest is the epitome of true luxury and epicurean pleasure.
At the touch of a button, the case opens to reveal a Champagne set for four guests. Ensuring effortless use, the exterior lid transforms into a serving tray made of Tudor Oak wood with a laser-cut stainless-steel inlay, and discreetly hidden under the lacquered Tudor Oak table, are four ‘RR’ cotton napkins.
Within, you’re presented with four hand-blown crystal champagne flutes reminiscent of a V12 engine. The glass of each is masterfully joined by a polished aluminium base, marked with the ‘RR’ emblem.
Possibly the most exciting part of the Chest, the sides – which automatically deploy to reveal two hammocks, in ‘hotspur red’ Rolls-Royce leather, designed to hold one’s preferred ensemble of either champagne, caviar or canapés. To ensure the champagne is maintained at the optimum temperature, there are black sleek Thermal Champagne Coolers, adorned with the elegant ‘RR’ monogram.
A caviar configuration is available, whereby two thermal caviar caissons, each accommodating a 30g tin, are complemented by two blini caissons proving the perfect complement to chilled champagne. Two exquisite Mother-of-Pearl spoons with anodised aluminium handles are housed magnetically at the top of the hammock, designed so as not to weaken the delicate flavour of the caviar.
An additional arrangement of three porcelain bowls concealed in a matching thermal capsule can be specified should customers wish to present their guests with an alternative accompaniment to champagne.
The Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest is designed for those “that seek a heightened sense of occasion in an elegant, entertaining manner and offers the irresistible allure of gadgetry,” Gavin Hartley, Head of Bespoke Design, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars states.
The Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest is available to acquire through Rolls-Royce dealerships, with prices starting from £37,000.00 excluding local taxes.
