Glass of Bubbly launch “The World’s Finest Ratafia Champenois Awards”


Three years in the making, Glass of Bubbly announced today the launch of The World’s Finest Ratafia Champenois Awards. An annual competition to take place in London with an invited judging panel to decide on silver and gold medals as well as the title of ‘The World’s Finest Ratafia Champenois’.

Working alongside ODG with Ratafia Champenois entries meeting required criteria, Glass of Bubbly have launched this unique awards programme for the famous and little known liquor from Champagne.

I have tasted many fine Ratafia from Champagne houses during my visits to the region that I felt a dedicated awards to this great liquor was needed to both help create competition of standards, but most importantly to increase global awareness and hopefully sales.” Christopher Walkey, founder.

Claude Giraud (Champagne Henri Giraud) is welcomed as the Honorary Judge for the Ratafia Chamapenois Award. Tatiana Mann Pakhmutova, a leading wine critic from Russia, will be awards chair person.

Champagne Route Bar (Wapping, London) will host the judging and potentially an awards announcement evening (to be confirmed). Plans are also in place for a Ratafia Champenois trade & press tasting for 2021.
