America’s Cup toasts Champagne partner

Moët & Chandon has been unveiled as the official Champagne of the 2017 America’s Cup.

The agreement will span a period of three years, starting with the America’s Cup World Series this summer and comprising the qualifiers and play-offs ahead of the final match in Bermuda in June 2017.

Moët & Chandon’s association with the America’s Cup stretches back to 1987.

“The America’s Cup and Moët & Chandon have a long relationship of celebrating success together,” said Harvey Schiller, the commercial commissioner of the America’s Cup. “We look forward to more celebrations as we start racing in the America’s Cup World Series and build towards our final races in Bermuda in 2017.”
