The Oddbins Take

Nicknames are funny things. They generally have some kernel of truth that inspired them, such as Alex “Hurricane” Higgins, Richard “Tricky Dick” Nixon and, of course, David “Golden Balls” Beckham.

We wonder what the kernel of truth was behind Tim Henman’s nickname, ‘Tiger Tim’…. The mind boggles.

Since the very beginning, Laurent-Perrier has also nurtured special relations with over 1,000 growers from whom it buys grapes. It is renowned for achieving many firsts – in the late 1950s, it introduced the first multi-vintage prestige cuvée, with the Grand Siècle. 20 years on,
