Champagne maison Krug has collaborated with French luxury audio company Devialet for Krug | Devialet, an exclusive limited edition case.

Each year, Krug continues the grand tradition of releasing a new edition of Grande Cuvée in harmony with a musical masterpiece. With Krug Echoes Act 1, the revered champagne house presents the Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition with an exclusive experience curated by Belgian composer and Krug Lover, Ozark Henry.
Every artist is invited to put their own unique interpretation of the fine bubbly in musical form.
Henry, an artist with synesthesia and a pioneer of 3D music, was inspired by Cellar Master Julie Cavil’s mastery in the art of blending. Founder Joseph Krug believed the true essence of Champagne is pleasure, and Henry’s specially composed piece was designed to take listeners on a sensorial journey as they savour the fine champagne.
With the champagne maison’s new collaboration with French luxury audio company Devialet, connoisseurs will be able to Krug x Music anywhere, with the Krug | Devialet Limited Edition Case. The elegant isothermal case, presented in Krug’s iconic burgundy, includes a pair of bespoke Devialet ‘Gemini’ Earbuds alongside a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition. The tailor-made limited-edition earbuds harnesses the Devialet’s ground-breaking 8D audio technology to immerse listeners in an intimate Krug Studio experience.
For a limited time, champagne lovers will also be able to enjoy Krug Echoes Act 1 at Zen restaurant by Krug Ambassade Chef Tristin Farmer from 19 September to 25 September, and at Hashida helmed by Krug Ambassade, Chef Kenjiro “Hatch” Hashida from 29 September to 7 October. Ordering a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition will unlock the exclusive opportunity to indulge in the melodic sounds by Ozark Henry through the special edition Krug | Devialet Gemini earbuds.
The Krug | Devialet Limited Edition Case retails for S$898 at Moomba.
