The Oddbins Take

Our French is rudimentary, but we think that Canard-Duchêne roughly translates as "duck of oak". And we believe this to be a reference to how this elegant Champagne conquered the UK.


The people of Ludes, near Reims, deposited an enormous wooden Trojan-duck at customs in Folkestone. The duck was filled to the brim with Champagne bottles, and when local customs officers wheeled it in, the trap door sprung open and bottles flew out, making their way up the M20 towards London.


The rest is history. However, our understanding may not be historically factual.
