The Art of Sabrage
Learn the art of Sabrage the technique for opening a Champagne bottle with a sabre, the Frence Army sword. The sabre is slid along the body of the bottle to break the entire neck away from the bottle, leaving only the base of the bottle open and ready to pour.
This technique became popular in France when the army of Napoleon visited many of the aristocratic domains. It was just after the French Revolution and the sabre was the weapon of choice of Napoleon's light cavalry (the Hussars). Napoleon's spectacular victories across all Europe gave them plenty of reason to celebrate. During these parties the cavalry would open the Champagne with their sabres. Napoleon is, known to have said, "Champagne! In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it”.
There are many stories about this tradition. One of the more spirited tales is that of Madame Clicquot, who had inherited her husband's small Champagne house at the age of 27. She used to entertain Napoleon's officers in her vineyard, and as they rode off in the early morning with their complimentary bottle of Champagne, they would open it with their sabre to impress the rich young widow.
We have taken such an old tradition and kept it alive, by been part of the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or, which have continued to trough the years to promote such eventful ritual.
The evening will include, demonstration on how to open a bottle of champagne with a sabre, opening your own bottle of champagne, certificate of such event and a 3 course meal from our a la carte menu.
Join us for a memorable dinner experience.
The Art of Sabrage, plus a 3 course meal £130 per person. For booking please call Fabrizio Russo at 020 7917 1011 or email at email@example.com
