A few weeks ago, I was invited to enjoy champagne G.H Mumm’s Kentucky Derby Celebration. It was an incredible soiree hosted by Usain Bolt, the brand’s new Chief Entertainment Officer. Other guests included Nina Agdal, Mario Cantone, Sean Kilpatrick, and Chanel Iman (I had so much fun taking selfies with her!) Chelsea Leyland was the DJ at the event- always a pleasure seeing her. Everyone enjoyed glasses of G.H. Mumm as well as specialty cocktails called the G.H. Mumm Trifecta, the G.H. Mumm Julep, and the G.H. Mumm Fruit Cup. We even got to witness Usain Bolt kicking off the festivities with a champagne fountain pour.
Bolt showed a kind and positive spirit at the event. He took photos with everyone who wanted to do so and danced the night away at the DJ booth. Usain has an impressive perseverance and unconventional nature that ties in well with the G.H. Mumm brand. He conveyed a lot of excitement for the Derby race as well.
We all watched the race with anxious anticipation- some rooting for Always Dreaming, others rooting for McCraken and Classic Empire. Although we chose different horses and Always Dreaming was the winner, there were two things everyone could agree on: G.H. Mumm holds prestige in the champagne category and knows how to throw a party. What an invigorating celebration!
