Veuve Clicquot arrived in Aspen on July 19 for “Birds & Bubbles,” a Sunday picnic at Ajax Tavern, bringing with them a Clicquot Mail truck and mobylettes. The 6 Million Dollar Band played 80’s hits while guests enjoyed Champagne, fried chicken and all the fixins.
The Little Nell stopover was a highlight of Clicquot En Route, the champagne house’s national tour, which was inspired by the heritage of the brand. Clicquot has been “en route” since 1772, bringing champagne to the world through mail carriers and sea captains, reaching as far as India by 1777, Russia in 1780, and the United States by 1782. With a trailer fashioned as a giant Clicquot mailbox, the tour travels nearly 15,000 miles, visiting more than 20 cities, and hosting parties at hip venues along the way. Each of these poolside, mountainside and curbside events includes a bit of Clicquot magic, complete with live music, lawn games, a photobooth, letter writing station and more.
Following the fun Sunday at Ajax Tavern in Aspen, the tour continues with the next stop in Chicago. Follow along here, as the journey is documented through the eyes of 23 photographers, from 17 different states and 23 different cities across the country. Spot the trailer and share your photos on social media, tagging #ClicquotenRoute and #ClicquotMail.
