With a legacy of almost two centuries behind it - the House of G.H. MUMM, established in 1827, still aspires to the original aims of the great Georges Hermann Mumm, one of the father figures of the House. His passion was to achieve the highest possible quality for G.H. MUMM champagnes: time after time he was heard to say “Only the Best”.
In 1875, he decided to decorate each of his bottles with the prized Cordon Rouge or red sash of the Légion d’Honneur, the highest French civilian distinction, created by Napoleon I. Over and above the symbol of excellence that it represents, the Cordon Rouge embodies the true spirit that drives the House: the quest for perfection, a spirit of adventure and panache.
Mumm today is one of the largest Champagne producers worldwide, famous for its red ribbon - Cordon Rouge patterned after and resembling the French Grand Cordon of the Légion d'Honneur.
Champagne G.H. Mumm was an official sponsor of Formula 1 since the year 2000. For 15 consecutive years, all Formula One race podiums were supplied with a limited edition Mumm F1 Jeroboam of Cordon Rouge Champagne. The 2015 F1 World Championship was won by British driver, Lewis Hamilton.
