A THROWBACK TO 1940'S CASABLANCA AND THE INVENTION OF THE MODERN CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL
Chandon S is inspired by the classic Champagne cocktail ordered by Victor Lazlo in the iconic 1942 film, ‘Casablanca’.
INTRODUCING CHANDON S
Chandon S is an infusion of sparkling wine and bitters. A throwback to 1940’s Casablanca and the invention of the modern Champagne cocktail.
Combining a base of Chandon Brut and handmade orange bitters crafted by the Chandon winemakers, this new drop on the block is a refreshing and thoughtful alternative to bubbles for parties and knock-off drinks.
CHANDON SIGNATURE BITTERS
Originally concocted as a medical treatment, bitters are used to flavour some of our favourite tipples, from the Old Fashioned to the Manhattan.
It’s basically an alcoholic preparation flavoured by some sort of botanical matter, whether that’s fruit, herbs, bark, roots or a combination. The flavour profile is generally bitter, sour or bittersweet.

PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES
In crafting this drink the Chandon team went a drop further than just adding a pre-made bitters concoction.
They charged their winemaking team with concocting a custom recipe that would complement Chandon Brut and achieve the desired aromatic outcome.
The outcome is dominated by orange (they burned through 300 kilograms of oranges in their search) but the brandy spirit is also infused with five other key ingredients: Gentian root, fresh ginger, vanilla pods, cinnamon quills and green cardamom pods.
ONE EYE FIRMLY FIXED ON THE FUTURE
Chandon has always been a brand with one eye fixed firmly on the future.
In the 1970s, they were the first French house to look at New World opportunities to create bold and exciting sparkling wines. The same rings true now, almost fifty years later.
