The artistic spirit of one of Denmark's most beautiful fishing towns — Skagen, inspired this new range of champagne cuvées. The 'Skagen' champagne range celebrates a fellowship of famous impressionist painters, who produced some of Denmark's finest artworks during the late 1800s. They were among the first Scandinavians to enjoy the delights of champagne.
'Skagen' honours arts and the Scandinavian art of 'hygge' with a selection of beautiful champagne cuvées.
We're proud to have obtained the owners' permission to use an iconic image of celebration on our labels. The world famous painting 'Hip hip hurra! (1888 oil-on-canvas) is the work of Danish artist P.S. Krøyer. The scene depicts artists celebrating with champagne during a lively garden lunch. Whether it was the bright sea light or the champagne, they turned a fleeting moment into an unforgettable one.
