Mr Berry said he had “fantasised about the return of the pint” of champagne for decades. He added that “now we are no longer beholden to Brussels” and could “drink our champagne from God’s own bottle size”.
A pint of champagne was “such a perfect sized bottle,” he said. “You get four proper sized glasses from it – as opposed to six from a bottle, or three from a half-bottle.
“Champagne is designed to be shared, preferably with one other person. Six glasses between two is – if you’re carrying on to another bottle with dinner – too much.
“However three glasses are certainly too little to share between two people – one for me, one for you, and a dribble for us both to finish with?
And why the fuck not, eh?
Action this day.
