Using an ice bucket to hold your ice nuggets not only makes a nice focal point for the wine but it also chills it much quicker – just 20 minutes rather than 2 hours in the fridge.

Good bubbly deserves good glassware so it’s worth deciding what type of glass you want and investing in a few you really like. It doesn’t need to cost a huge amount, there’s glassware for all budgets.

The world’s most expensive Champagne glass cost $400,000! It was made from diamond and crystal by designer John Calleija.
