Tesco Champagne Methuselah

Tesco is selling six-litre Methuselah bottles of Lanson White Label Champagne in four London stores.

The bottles – named after the Biblical figure reported to have lived longer than any other – will set shoppers back £499, and are only available from the following City of London stores : Bishopsgate, Tooley Street, Canary Wharf and Cheapside. To take one home, consumers must place an order a day in advance.

 “As the Christmas party season kicks off, we thought it would be a great idea to make some larger-format bottles available to customers,” said Tesco Champagne buyer Charlie Craven. “Magnums have been popular over the past couple of Christmas’, but this year we thought we’d go even bigger.”
