Silverthorn The Jewel Box MCC 750ml
Come quickly, I'm drinking the stars
The Southern Cross, or Crux, is the best known constellation in the southern hemisphere’s skies, and also our favourite. It gave early explorers their bearings when travelling the southern oceans. Hidden within Crux is a fascinating deep-sky object known as Kappa Crucis. It is regarded as one of the finest open clusters in the Milky Way galaxy. Kappa Crucis adopted the nickname “Jewel Box”. When Dom Pierre Perignon, the Benedictine monk and so called father of Champagne first experienced the joys of sparkling bubbles vibrantly frothing out of a bottle of wine he allegedly and excitedly exclaimed ‘come quickly, I am drinking the stars’. We can honestly relate to this statement.
