Fortnum’s is proud to pair with fellow London institution the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, as the official and exclusive champagne partner for 2017. RHS Chelsea, similarly to Fortnum & Mason itself, is a must-see for tourists and Londoners alike, and from 23–27 May this year those enjoying the beautiful displays on show will be able to do so with a delicious tipple in hand.
Fortnum & Mason and the RHS Chelsea Flower Show make for a very natural partnership – both are synonymous with the summer season and embrace celebration, joy and Englishness.
Guests visiting the gardens in May will take refreshment from a selection of seven of Fortnum’s finest champagnes, including Vintage Champagne Louis Roederer and Rosè Champagne Billecart Salmon. Visitors can also enjoy an iced treat with a difference, in the form of Fortnum & Mason Champagne Popsicles. Making their hotly anticipated return this year, Fortnum’s famous Pops come in four delectable flavours; Blanc de Blanc Champagne, Kir Royale, Rosè and Summer Cup, an infusion or Fortnum’s Dry London Gin and sherry with Moroccan Mint, Chai and Earl Grey tea. Whether enjoyed in the form of traditional fizz or frozen, the menu will be the perfect warm weather accompaniment.
Zia Zareem-Slade, customer experience director at Fortnum & Mason, said: “While we are known for being partial to a cup of tea at Fortnum’s, there is always room for a glass of bubbly. We are incredibly proud of our champagne and look forward to sharing it with so many people at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.”
