Both teams celebrated the match with a magnum of Veuve Clicquot champagne. The day’s highlights included Girls star and Broadway performer Andrew Rannells’ crowd-pleasing rendition of the National Anthem, the ceremonial ball toss thrown in by Jourdan Dunn to kick off the match, Jaimie Alexander stomping the divots during half-time, and bold-faced names having fun on the dance floor listening to the beats of DJ Nikki Pennie, Hannah Bronfman and Brendan Fallis.
Veuve Clicquot is proud to continue support for Liberty State Park, the home of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. A stone’s throw from the Statue of Liberty and with sweeping views of Manhattan, Liberty State Park’s 600 acres of land have offered city dwellers a green oasis since it opened to the public in 1976.
In the VIP tent, the favorite drink of the day was Veuve Clicquot Rich, an innovative new product inspired by mixology and designed to be served over ice and mixed with fresh fruits, vegetables or herbs to create unique craft cocktails. Guests chose from bell pepper, cucumber and basil, grilled pineapple, and lime garnish for their custom Clicquot Rich and Clicquot Rich Rosé creations, which were sipped alongside glasses of Yellow Label, Rosé and La Grande Dame. The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic served as the official debut of Clicquot Rich and Clicquot Rich Rosé in New York.
