Lanson is the official supplier of Champagne for the Wimbledon tennis championships. To capitalise on the event, it will have a sampling bar at Heathrow's terminal three and has produced a special gift pack.

The specially packaged bottles of Lenson will come in a zipped chill-sleeve in the Wimbledon colours of green and purple. They will retail for £25.99 at Waitrose, a multiple retailer in the UK.
