Master The Art Of Sabrage At Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire

May 29, 2015 Luxury Hotels No Comments Print Print Email Email

Celebrating at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire has become even more special thanks to the introduction of the Art of Sabrage in Bar 1086 this June.


Sabrage is the traditional ceremonial technique of opening a bottle of Champagne with a sabre. Popularised during the French Revolution by Napoleon’s army following their spectacular victories across Europe, Sabrage has since become a popular celebratory practice to commemorate victorious and joyous occasions.

With the purchase of every bottle of Champagne, the Bar 1086 bartender will escort guests onto the terrace overlooking the 500 acre (200 hectare) estate, where they will impart their sabreur skills.  They will then be invited to slice open their own bottle and will be presented with a commemorative certificate at the end of the ceremony, before being served the chilled Champagne back at their table.

“I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate.” – Napoleon Bonaparte
