French champagne house Piper-Heidsieck has been tapped by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as the official bubbly of the 92nd Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on February 9, 2020.

This will be the sixth time that Piper-Heidsieck has been selected as the sole champagne served during the Academy Awards. For the event, Piper-Heidsieck is paying tribute to cinema with a limited edition magnum bottle that will also acknowledge the 100th anniversary of Prohibition – the label on the house’s signature cuvée brut will be a replica of the one used during the Prohibition era.

“In the 1920s, bootleggers would smuggle Piper-Heidsieck into the United States where it would be secretly served in speakeasys throughout New York City,” said Piper-Heidsieck’s general manager Benoit Collard.

Under the agreement with the Academy, Piper-Heidsieck will be poured exclusively at the Oscars, the Governors Ball, the Academy’s official after party in the Ray Dolby Ballroom and at Academy events in Los Angeles, New York and London including the Oscar Nominees Luncheon on January 27, 2020.
