Piper-Heidsieck: limited edition bottle for Valentine's day

 


Famed French champagne house Piper-Heidsieck, founded in 1785 in Reims, is coming out with a stylish new limited edition bottle for Valentine's Day to salute its status as the favorite tipple of legendary ladies from Marie Antoinette to Marilyn Monroe.


The new Rosé Sauvage Bodyguard bottle's crocodile-like skin was painstakingly created using the latest thermoplastic elastomer technology to perfectly replicate the real reptile. An actual Nile crocodile was scanned for twelve whole days to create the perfect template for the realistic wrapping. The resulting image was laser printed onto a steel mould, which was then filled with molten latex.


Cheers!
