Cristal French Champagne speaks to explain Cristal french champagne and what is Cristal french champagne the manufacture and history of such.
This champagne as produced by Louis Roederer is recognized by its flat bottomed clear crystal bottle which is wrapped in an anti ultra violet cellophane cover and gold label. It is expensive and carries a high status.
It was first created in 1876 for Alexander 11 of Russia and it is interesting to note that history states that due to his fear of assassination he wanted a clear bottle as green bottle could hide an explosive.
It got the name Cristal because the flat bottom required that crystal glass be used to ensure strength.
Cristal Champagne was not available on a commercial basis until 1945. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the brand became increasingly associated with rap and hip-hop culture, with several artists referencing the drink in song lyrics and as part of their public image.
A popular drink in the more affluent of the sub culture was a mix of Cristal Champagne and Cognac. The annual production of Cristal is 300,000 to 400,000 bottles.
