London, Nov 17 (IANS) The champagne maker Veuve Clicquot has said that at least three bottles of its brand were found in a two-centuries old shipwreck in the Baltic Sea.
The divers who found the sunken vessel in July said the champagne is thought to be the world’s oldest drinkable bubbly, the Telegraph said Wednesday.
They were not able to determine the brand at the time. But Veuve Clicquot said Wednesday that experts checking branding of the corks ‘were able to identify with absolute certainty’ that three of the bottles were Veuve Clicquot.
It says other bottles examined were attributed to the now defunct champagne house Juglar.
