London, October 2021: This Autumn, Veuve Clicquot, the iconic champagne house is back with its concept store at Selfridges London with Le Tram. Taking over the bar and retail space, across 50 square metres, on the ground floor, guests will be transported in Le Tram to an optimistic and retro installation. The sense of nostalgia is heightened by this year’s iteration of the Veuve Clicquot personalised bottle – Clicquot Tape.
This Christmas season, Veuve Clicquot is not only going retro, it’s going “Retro, Chic!”, a celebration of the House’s prevailing love of beautiful objects. In a world that is virtual and frenetic, we look to appreciate and taking pleasure in reminiscing that take us back to joyful times.
Inspired by the iconic cassette The Veuve Clicquot ‘Le Tram’ will be home to an intimate 10-seated bar offering a unique menu of Veuve Clicquot champagne and curated cocktails including a Pear and Ginger Mule, Belvedere Organic Infusion Blackberry and Lemongrass vodka and Eminente Rum. When seated in the bookable longue area (a specific corner of the instillation) guests can play their own song through retro speakers and be transported back to a festive moment of happiness.
That iconic throwback to the ‘70s and ‘80s has inspired the new Clicquot Tape limited edition, a true homage to the audiocassette tape. Christmas this year will have a new meaning focusing on time for connection, optimism and spending it with loved ones. For those seeking the ultimate personal statement Christmas gift, express yourself by adding a personal message, inspired by iconic song lyrics. Whatever the occasion – a get-together with friends, a gift, an anniversary, a voyage – you can evoke a shared memory, or simply let them know how much you care. Browse from among 300 gifting messages or type your own on a retro typewriter.
The personalised label is in the shape of authentic mixtape labels and the personalised design allowing you to keep the box at home to display long after the bottle is enjoyed!
Le Tram offers a break from the busy Christmas shopping crowds to enjoy a glass of champagne whilst you wait for your personalised gifting service. Here customers will be able to pre-book exclusive tastings, one to one experiences with top bartenders, cocktails masterclasses and food pairing events. We trust you will delight in the taste of this Veuve Clicquot retro chic journey of joyful emotions.

About Veuve Clicquot:
Founded in 1772 in Reims, France, champagne house Veuve Clicquot colors life with audacity. More than champagne, Veuve Clicquot is an attitude that sparkles with joie de vivre, embodied by the House’s signature sunburst-yellow color. Madame Clicquot, the audaciously innovative woman known as la grande dame of Champagne, took the reins of the House in 1805, and became one of the first businesswomen of modern times. She cultivated a culture of excellence, and adopted “only one quality, the finest” as her motto. Her passion, vision, and innate sense of French art de vivre live on today in the House that bears her name. Veuve Clicquot spreads delight through its remarkable champagne range, including the iconic Yellow Label, and its joyful experiences around the world.
