Champagne Carbon

With my wedding coming up shortly and as a huge F1 fan I decided it appropriate to procure a bottle of Champagne Carbon for our first toast and Mr and Mrs. It's a pretty awesome feeling being one of the first people in the US to have this.

Also just seems to be a carbon wrapper over a regular bottle.

I mean, we can make carbon wheels, shouldn't a carbon bottle be possible?

It's a cured carbon fiber layer on the outside of the bottle. For it to be considered champagne, it has to be put in a very specific glass bottle.

I pulled some strings and got a deal, but anywhere from $200 to $400 a bottle depending on the cuvee/type.

That as well. It can't be in just a bottle made from carbon fiber, it has to be glass and from a select number of manufacturers. They can however, add to the bottle.

Ha! Was fun being there to see that. He sure shot those hard compounds though, lucky to stay in second, not that it really mattered.

For me, the bottle itself is worth the price! But I will definitely fill people in on the taste.
