Food & Spirits: Renowned French champagne house Krug, founded in 1843 and now part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH) luxury empire, is coming out with a new bespoke offering in time for the holidays. The "Krug on My Own Terms" consists of a wooden case of six bottles of champagne from the Krug cellars in Reims. The champagne is Krug's prestigious Grand Cuvée, dubbed "the timelessly stylish signature of Krug," that "effortlessly balances richness and freshness, power and finesse."
The Grand Cuvée bottles are packed in a case bearing a bespoke plaque made either of metal, mirror or saddle leather, engraved with the purchaser or recipient's name or initials, and emblazoned with the signature House of Krug logo. Priced at $1,000, it's the ultimate holiday gift for the serious champagne lover. The "On My Own Terms" case is the latest in a line of stylish Krug offerings.
The champagne house has previously released the Krug Hat Box, a chapeau-shaped box containing either two bottles of Grand Cuvée in gift boxes for $300, or three bottles without gift boxes for $450. They have also collaborated with bespoke luggage maker Pinel & Pinel on the Krug Escape Artist Collection of trunks, in poker, cigar and audio/visual versions, for $15,000 apiece.
