With a mouth like a barrel of monkeys and a nose of Stone-Fruit and Orange Blossom, this frenzied friend is the wise choice to accompany any occasion or celebration. There’s a wise ass at every party, so why not make it this one?
what's with the funky label?
Of course Champagne is the most well known sparkling wine and there are many myths about its origins. The region used to be more famous for animal husbandry, especially sheep, goats, and donkeys, and their wine was not well received and quite mediocre. It took years of marketing and luck going back to the 5th century to create the Champagne brand including the fictional story of its inventor, Dom Perignon (he was actually trying to get rid of the bubbles). Both king Louis the 14th and Napoleon helped champagne along to its lofty heights as the worldwide symbol of celebration. It’s popularity was built on myths and marketing, but don’t mention any word of that to the folks of champagne. They won’t hear, see, or even speak of it.
or just the short version:
The monkeys represent Hear no evil see no evil speak no evil. The donkey represents champagne and their true lineage. And it’s all in good fun!
