[Luxus+ Magazine] A short history of luxury: Mumm, the “Champagne of the Sovereign of England”

If England mourns its Queen, it is also the case for the champagne house Mumm, which was very often on the banquet table of Elizabeth II.


The history between the royal family of England and the Champagne house Mumm is not new. In 1886, the British Crown recognized G.H. Mumm Champagne as the official supplier of Her Majesty Queen Victoria and her son, Prince Albert-Eduard of Wales, the future Edward VII. 


This recognition was granted by the “Royal warrant”, a warrant issued to companies supplying goods or services to a royal court or certain members of the royal family. This precious document, written by hand, bears an official seal and the signature of the Lord Steward at the head of the Royal Household. It was originally valid for ten years, but was later reduced to five years.
