We have shown you metal bands such as Metallica and Opeth come up with their own signature beer in the past. As these offering are nothing less than a souvenir to metal fans, it has become a popular trend among various rock bands and artists to launch their own signature booze. Taking this trend forward, the latest rockstar to join this league is Roger Daltrey, founder and frontman of the legendary British rock band The Who. Daltrey is launching his own limited edition Champagne to honor band’s 50th anniversary.
Christened Cuvée Roger Daltrey, the limited edition Champagne is produced by Champagne house Charles Orban, in village of Troissy. The Orban family has been growing grapes in Troissy, located on the left bank of the Marne, upstream from Dormans, since 1770. The bottle features band’s iconic red, blue and black bull’s-eye logo along with Daltrey’s signature. The bottle and label design is inspired from the Tommy album cover, band’s most popular album and Daltrey’s personal favorite as well.
The Champagne Cuvée Roger Daltrey is produced from a fine blend of three grape varieties -Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier to offer a creamy texture with fine and lively bubbles. The cognac will come with a limited edition champagne ice bucket created by L’Orfevrerie d’Anjou, world’s leading pewter smith since 1710. Using techniques such as casting, laminating and laser cutting, the pewter buckets are decorated with an engraved bullseye logo and Roger Daltrey’s signature. These ice buckets are available in ten different colors and will set you back £650.
Cuvée Roger Daltrey will be up for sale in limited numbers from June 18th after ‘The Who Hits 50!’ North American tour. It will come with a price of £95. Well, the best part is that a percentage from the sales will go to Teen Cancer America, a charity co-founded by Roger Daltrey alongside his band mate Pete Townsend.
