Veuve Clicquot tablets sparkle on the internets

How would it sound if you could carry tablets of Veuve Clicquot in your handbag and drop then in water to make a glass of the famous bubbly? To those who drive popular brand to sales of over a half a million cases a year in the US, that sounds like their kind of “plop, plop, fizz, fizz.”

  5. Completely possible look at “PALCOHOL” image carring a high end product anywhere!

  6. It is clever marketing. I would buy some Veuve Clicquot tablets if they existed. I doubt they would come close to the real thing though.
