2 years ago, two brothers sat down with a bottle of champagne and an old, crumpled black and white photograph. It showed their great uncle pouring a bottle of Pol Roger down a carefully balanced set of 8 champagne coupes. One directly on top of the next, the glasses made a singular tube shape that rose up, towering to a meter high, at least. It was hard to make out how they rested on each other but by the excited looks on the baffled guests around, this was some kind of party trick.
Yes they’d been to wild parties themselves, had watched at events as hosts poured from giant champagne pyramids, but they had never seen this stunt. A moment grabbed them. This was a great way to share a celebration with friends. They must try to recreate this family heirloom for all.
