Commenting on the design, Alexander Amosu said: “The bottle already has a distinctive look with its natural design, all I had to do is bring it to the next level of ultimate luxury.”
The Goût de Diamants everyday bottles are hand-finished by a single craftsman with over 40 years experience. The Bottles for each of the four vintages come with a hand-applied pure pewter engraved label set with a brilliant cut Swarovski Crystal (The Rosé crystal is appropriately pink and the Brut, blue.).
In house, Shammi Shinh, said: “We wanted to take it one step further and create a one off masterpiece for one of our private wealthy clients and we are very pleased with the results.”
