. . . and the amazing Champagne Tower - The Coupe Stack!

We exhibited 15 premium, artisan Champagnes at this year’s London Wine Fair. They came from 3 small Champagne growers - Jacquinot & Fils, Dérouillat and Moutaux - and are currently not commercially available in the UK.

These “new generation” owners, who are in their 30s to 40s, produce top quality award winning premium Champagnes with passion and vision.


Original & Distinctive Limited (previously Smarter International Trading Limited) is a small producer drinks specialist that buys and sells original & distinctive beverages™ including: Grower Champagne from France, Premium Sparkling Wine, Original Still Wine, Craft Beer and Traditional Cider & Perry from the UK.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ken and his company Smarter Grower Champagne to any establishment looking to expand their Champagne selection beyond the obvious.”
