Rolls-Royce unveils £37k Champagne chest

British luxury car maker Rolls-Royce has unveiled a £37,000 Champagne chest which comes complete with four V12 engine-inspired flutes, two “thermal caviar caissons”, two blini holders, two mother of pearl caviar spoons and a canapé capsule.

The Champagne chest is the latest addition to Rolls-Royce’s accessory portfolio, a range that also includes a wood-lined cigar humidor, lambswool floor mat, picnic hamper and parasol.

The chest is said to be suitable “for the most extravagant of environments, from a superyacht to the terrace of a private residence”.

The chest is made from aluminium and carbon fibre, coated with black leather and Tudor oak, reflecting the materials used in Rolls-Royce cars. “Naturally, should a patron wish to create a bespoke colour-way, this would of course, be possible,” the statement adds.

The chest opens at the touch of a button to reveal a wooden serving tray with a laser-cut stainless steel inlay. It contains four hand-blown crystal Champagne flutes, said to have been inspired by the V12 engine, each boasting a polished aluminium base etched with ‘RR’.

Also included are four embroidered napkins, two red leather ‘hammocks’ for holding glasses or bowls, Champagne coolers made from black anodised aluminium and carbon fibre, two thermal caviar caissons (each with space for a 30g tin), two blini caissons, three porcelain bowls in a matching thermal canapé capsule, and two mother-of-pearl caviar spoons, which attach magnetically to the ‘hammocks’.

The chest, which lights up when opened, is available from dealerships at a starting price of £37,000.
