Monday 22 December marks New Zealand’s longest day of summer and Moët & Chandon launches their ground-breaking champagne for another year as the ultimate way to toast to the warm season.

Moët Ice Imperial is the world’s first and only champagne specifically created to be enjoyed on ice and three years since it first launched exclusively in global hotspots around the world, Moët Ice Imperial is now available in 19 of New Zealand’s top restaurants, for the first time.

A stylish departure from champagne norms and the ultimate embodiment of summer, Moët Ice Imperial’s crisp freshness and powerful tropical fruit aromas are an instant passport to a luxurious champagne getaway.


“With Moët Ice Imperial, Moët & Chandon has created a new occasion to drink champagne, outside of ‘traditional’ moments,” says Benoit Gouez, Chef de Cave of Moët & Chandon.

“For the first time, a champagne has been created especially to be served on ice, the perfect compliment for spontaneous moments of celebration with friends on a warm summer day,” he continued.


This summer, Moët Ice Imperial will also be available in leading fine wine retailers allowing New Zealanders to transform any summer escape into a stylish occasion.


Moët Ice Imperial should be served on ice in Bordeaux glasses that enhance the freshness experience. It can also be garnished with mint leaves, a slice of cucumber or strawberries according to taste preference.
