Bubbles and Balls

Posted by [email protected] on February 16, 2017

Bubbles and balls have long gone together… There’s nothing quite like the glitz and glamour of a formal dance party or masquerade to encourage the flow of fizz!

But this month we have another type of ball on our minds… The rugby ball, as we’ve been caught up in the 6 Nations!

We may have our home in New Zealand, but we’re still proud of our family roots in Champagne, France, where members of the Le Brun family still live; and of course Adele was born in England. So whilst our mighty All Blacks aren’t part of the 6 Nations tournament, two of our back up teams are!

If you’re based in the Northern hemisphere and are enjoying Rugby’s Greatest Championship, why not give the beer a miss next time you switch on the big screen? Go for bubbles instead!
