Earlier this year young financier Alex Hope splashed out £125,000 on a Midas of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold NV at a nightclub in Liverpool, racking up the most expensive bar bill in the world in the process.
Yvonne Lardner, Armand de Brignac’s director of PR has reported a large interest in Nebuchadnezzar’s of Brut Gold NV in emerging market Nigeria, which are being used for weddings and large family celebrations.
Lardner also reports an interest in Ace of Spades Rosé from men: “We’ve found our Rosé to be really popular with men, the stigma towards the style seems to have gone,” she told db.
Ace of Spades recently appeared in Nigerian singer D’banj’s music video for the song Oliver Twist. D’Banj is signed to rapper Kanye West’s record label.
Last month db reported that Nigeria was developing a thirst for wine, and particularly high end Champagne, with its wine industry expected to reach US $370m by 2015.

The set is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the many would-be redecorators who search “bathroom sweets” instead of “bathroom […]

Solving a Rubik’s Cube is a lot harder than it looks. Sure, you’d think after sitting around twisting the cube in every which way, you’d eventually solve it by luck, but let’s be real: That doesn’t happen.

Dear Bros, Let’s have ourselves a little chat.
