Gosset Ambassador Lapel Pins

This year Champagne Gosset turn their attention and focus to a gift for presenting to ‘Gosset Ambassadors’ or friends of the House, as a reward and thank you for their loyalty, service and support for the company.

This is to be Gosset-inspired unisex lapel pins and a presentation box. The lapel pins are to be presented as a complimentary set of pins that represent aspects of Gosset’s heritage and journey. These are to be made in silver and embellished with other materials to give colour, contrast and complimentary visual qualities. The presentation box is to be made in an exotic wood and decorated with silver and other supportive materials and/or surface treatments to symbolise or correlate with the lapel pins and Gosset. 

The judges will be particularly looking for designs that are refreshingly inventive to this challenge and show a clear understanding and reading of the brief.

Important design considerations...

The designs need to successfully embrace the following: 

  • Embody, depict, represent or symbolise the Champagne Gosset logo.

  • Designs to be refreshingly inventive, different, unusual.

  • Originality, stylish and attention seeking – create conversations. 

  • There is no limit on the size of lapel pins or presentation box.

  • Presentation box to be a successful design in its own right – a stand-alone product.

  • Creative response to the brief and its intended objective

Logo update - 10 Dec 2023

Please note, the current logo now being displayed at the top of this page is the one to reference, use and incorporate in your design proposal. This is a relatively new logo that you may have seen when researching Champagne Gosset. Our apologies for this amendment.

An unmissable opportunity

The winner of the Champagne Gosset prize will receive an all-expenses paid, behind the scenes visit to Champagne Gosset’s headquarters in France. They will be shown how Gosset champagnes are made in the vineyards, winery and cellars and finally in the bottle through a series of tastings and meals.

Gosset is a boutique Champagne House, located in the historic heart of Champagne, in the town of Epernay in northern France. The company was founded in 1584 and is the oldest winery in the champagne region. They remain family owned and employ handmade, traditional techniques to make their wines.  

Gosset are proud to have been awarded two important quality marques. The first, Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (a living history company) is a French government backed award that recognises companies that demonstrate excellence in craftsmanship and traditional industrial know-how. Gosset are one of only two Champagne Houses to hold this award.
