Champagne house Pol Roger has teamed up with John Jenkins Fine Glassware to create a bespoke Champagne tankard inspired by an antique crystal glass dating back to 1785. The Pol Roger Champagne Tankard sees a resurrection of this lost style, handmade by craftsmen at John Jenkins, the royal family’s crystal supplier.
The vessel, which is engraved by hand on the base, serves as a fitting tribute to Pol’s biggest fan, Sir Winston Churchill, who famously drank vintage Pol Roger from a tankard, allegedly consuming 42,000 bottles of the fizz over his lifetime.
The design of the handle, which is thicker at the top and narrower at the base with a small flourish at the lower end, is typical of silver tankards of the early Georgian period. The horizontal “beading” around the body of the tankard is also a design detail taken from tankards of that time.
