It was really a matter of time when it will be unveiled world’s first champagne vending machine. Moet & Chandon, give us that privilege to enjoy luxury bubbles, served to ‘drink and buy’ from their new machine. As expected from previous collaboration between famous champagne brand and Selfridges, the extravagant dispenser filled with 350 200ml bottles of Moet & Chandon has been installed in Christmas section of department store in London.
Dawn Davies, from Selfridges, said: “This year, Selfridges have taken Christmas to a whole new level, transforming the entire fourth floor into a one-stop destination for gifting. The inclusion of the world’s first Moet vending machine makes a decadent addition to our Christmas emporium.”
Priced at £18 ($29), each mini bottle is decorated with 350 deco-inspired Swarovski crystals. Also forget about using coins. Instead of outdated ways of shop, you’ll have to purchase tokens at a special counter. And if you’re bit afraid of smashing precious bottle, don’t worry, the machine uses a special robotic arm that transfers the champagne safely.
This is the latest in a line of luxury vending machines to be unveiled. We already seen caviar vending machine.
Beverly Hills Caviar has unveiled its first touch-screen vending machine at the Burbank Towne Center
Beside caviar stocked from all over the world, these vending machines also offer truffles, escargot, Bellinis, bottarga blinis, gourmet salts and caviar accessories, such as oils, gourmet salts, as well as utensils made of mother of pearl so as not to interfere with the taste of the delicacy.
So, Angelenos can finally drop hundreds of dollars at vending machines in local malls and buy 28 grams of Imperial River Beluga Caviar for $500, or a pink mother of pearl spoon for $4!
Other unusual vending machines include one that makes and dispenses “authentic” pizza in less than three minutes, and a marijuana-selling machine that was seized recently in New Zealand.
