As of the 2017/2018 winter season Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in St. Moritz is one of only four Krug Ambassades in Switzerland, serving its guests a large selection of different Cuvées of the prestigious Champagne. New to the hotel’s offering is the ‘Krug Stübli’ in the wine cellar, where an exclusive truffle fondue can be enjoyed with Krug Champagne in a cozy rustic ambience.
Krug Champagne is working with selected restaurants and hotels, the so-called ‘Krug Ambassades’ and it ranks among the most exclusive Champagne brands in the world. A ‘Krug Ambassade’ is an iconic place which represents the spirit of the House of Krug based on the principles of prestige – a unique passion and savoir-faire. All over the world the Krug Ambassades represent a real network of Krug lovers who pass on their passion through relentless hard work and an original style.
Like Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, Krug Champagne has been a family-run business for several generations, with Olivier Krug now at the helm. Both brands stand for tradition and quality, which is why guests can now look forward to a varied culinary program of events to do with Krug Champagne.
The exclusive Champagne has been enjoyed in Badrutt’s Palace for some time now. At the beginning of the 20th Century there were several Krug Cuvées to choose from in the hotel’s restaurant. On the present wine list there is now a selection of 23 different Krug Champagnes, and Krug Grande Cuvée is served by the glass in all the restaurants and bars. In the wine cellar there are even some rare bottles of the fine grape, such as a Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1996 or a Magnum of Krug Collection 1982.
The Wine Cellar’s ‘Krug Stübli’
On the culinary front Maison Krug focuses on a specific ingredient each year in order to create first class menus which best promote the champagne’s unique character – for 2018 the ingredients are mushrooms. These special pairing menus are offered in the Krug Ambassades locations, and this will be new to Badrutt’s Palace Hotel from 2018.
Guests can now enjoy the new ‘Krug Stübli’ in the hotel’s time-honored wine cellar. Hans Badrutt’s former garden room has been incorporated and transformed into a cozy chalet. The ‘Krug Stübli’ will offer exclusive truffle fondues and Krug dinners – reservations can already be made under firstname.lastname@example.org / +41 81 837 26 61
