Would mystery reveller enjoy a champagne hamper?
Published on 19/04/2010

A mystery partygoer who shelled out over £35,000 on a bottle of champagne might like to receive a gift hamper of bubbly.

The reveller purchased the drink - a 1996 Dom Perignon Rose Gold that has the nickname the King of Champagnes - at a London bar.

A till receipt at the Westbury Hotel revealed that the anonymous buyer left a £10,625 tip and a £4,375 service charge.

He or she is rumoured to be a Russian billionaire who also spilt three glasses moments after receiving the beverage.

Bar manager Elias Yiallouri refused to give away the person's identity, but said of the drink: "Each bottle is like a piece of fine art - stunningly beautiful, extremely valuable and highly collectable."

LVMH, which produces Krug Champagne, recently revealed that it made a 13 per cent leap in first-quarter sales for 2010 - suggesting that the drink is becoming more popular as the economic situation begins to improve.
