Maison Mumm reveals champagne bottle with aluminium shell
Maison Mumm revealed the final design of Mumm Cordon Rouge Stellar, the first champagne bottle and tasting experience designed for space travel and human spaceflight.
In a historic collaboration with Axiom Space, a leader in commercial human spaceflight, Mumm Cordon Rouge Stellar will join Axiom’s human spaceflight program and fly on future space missions.
Contained in a half glass bottle, the wine is secured by a perfectly reliable stainless steel opening-closing device. It only comes into contact with glass and stainless steel, identical to Mumm’s blending vats in Reims – two materials that ideally ensure its preservation.
A shell made of aeronautical-grade aluminium then protects the glass bottle.
“This project is, of course, very stimulating because of its highly technological nature and its 100% French identity, from design to manufacturing. But it is also very exciting because technology serves a greater purpose here: champagne condenses the memory of a terroir, a climate, an ancestral savoir-faire and tasting sensations for all those who will evolve far from Earth,” comments Octave de Gaulle, founder of the SPADE agency.
