As with many great traditions, it happened for the first time by complete accident. Upon winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in , Jo Siffert accidentally sprayed the crowd as the bottle of champagne had been sitting out in the sun, causing pressure to build up inside the magnum. The next year, Californian racer Dan Gurney deliberately copied Siffert's gesture when he won the same race and the tradition was born. Produced in Reims of course , we got to see the Jeroboams before anyone else deep in the cavernous, 25 kilometres cellars of the world-famous champagne producer.
Turned by hand to collect and remove the sediment that collects during the maturing process, the blend is monitored for two-and-a-half years before it's ready to go. Each bottle is also labelled by hand above ground by specially trained staff - a job that, considering the bottles are beamed at high resolution around the world to millions of people, we can imagine is fairly highly pressured.

On a side note, it's interesting that if you look at the bottles, you'll see that one GH Mumm logo is upside down - so the name of the champagne can be seen from all angles in case the driver goes rogue and tips it upside down. If you want to live it up like Rosberg, but haven't just won a high-stakes car race, you'll be pleased to hear that bottles of GH Mumm's Cordon Rouge are available to buy in both Jeroboam 3L and standard sizes ml right now as both F1 limited edition and as regular bottles. However, we'd recommend you leave the crowd-spraying to the professionals - trust us, this is far too good to spill.
