To celebrate the French Maison's 250th anniversary, SMEG launches a new line of colourful fridges in partnership with Veuve Clicquot. 13 years after the first historic collaboration between SMEG and Veuve Clicquot in 2009, the two brands are back with a new special edition partnership to celebrate the first 250 years of the French Maison.
These fridges aren't just beautiful; they're also highly functional. They can chill any bottle for up to two hours, and once you remove the special material inside, they become a reusable design masterpiece.
Embodying Veuve Clicquot's creative spirit, this retro 1950s-style mini fridge gift box, redesigned in collaboration with pioneering brand SMEG, keeps your bottle of champagne cool for up to two hours and is infinitely recyclable. Re-edited for the maison's 250th anniversary, the fridge is now plastic-free and constructed in recyclable tin, with a removable wedge made from 100% sugarcane waste so that it can be upcycled to enjoy a second life as a designer box.

Veuve Clicquot Champagne is synonymous with their distinctive yellow coloured label. The unrivalled branding and cachet embodies elegance. A house that was built by Barbe-Nicol Ponsardin. Who at the age of just 27 years became the widow Clicquot. She single handily built the reputation of the house into what it is today.
Known for seeking out just one quality level, the very finest. At the time she became a widow, to be in charge of a business was not something that women were destined to do, let alone a create a leading Champagne house.
There are many things that we can attribute to the Widow Clicquot including with the help her cellar master Antoine-Aloys de Muller, the riddling process. Riddling is the art of slowly turning the bottles a quarter turn over a number of weeks, until the sediment is in the neck of the bottle. Prior to this process, the wine of the region was cloudy. It was also Veuve Clicquot that made the very first rose champagne.
Whilst the rise of grower Champagne is interested and challenges the historic norms in the Champagne market. These producers are another story, another part of the orchestra. What must not be forgotten or overlooked is the skill that houses such as Veuve Clicquot master. With production sitting at around 18 million bottles. The skill to blend the wines from over 17 different Grand Cru and 18 different premiuer cru ensuring that whether you taste a bottle in New York, London or here in Auckland, it will deliver that same exquisite style you are expecting.
