Lanson sells record number of bottles at Wimbledon

Published:  11 July, 2013

Andy Murray's famous victory at Wimbledon last weekend was washed down with a record number of bottles of Champagne Lanson, the official Champagne of the tournament.

In all 25,000 bottles of Champagne Lanson were sold over the Wimbledon fortnight at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

Each bottle sold came with its own Wimbledon-themed neoprene jacket, in either white, pink or purple, created specifically for this year's event .

The 2013 tournament marked Lanson's 25th anniversary of being the official Champagne of Wimbledon and it announced during the championships that it had signed on for another five years.

"It has been an incredible two weeks, and in all the years we've been here, this one goes down as a vintage year thanks to Andy Murray's incredible performance. We'll be sending him a few magnums to celebrate," said Paul Beavis, managing director of Lanson International UK.

Lanson appropriately became the official Champagne supplier to Wimbledon in 1977, the last time there was a British singles winner at the event, when Virginia Wade won the women's tournament.
