One of the last remaining independent Champagne houses, Bollinger can trace its roots in Champagne all the way back to 1585. It rose to popularity in the 20th century under the inspired leadership of Lily Bollinger. Notable for raising awareness of the Bollinger brand, she also coined one of the most famous Champagne quotations: 'I drink it when I'm happy. I drink it when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty.'
