In celebration of finding champagne that was over 230 years old was in the Baltic Sea back in 2010, new bottles of Veuve Clicquot champagne were recently sent down to take their own deep sea dive.

The hundred year old bottles that were found four years ago could very well have been part of a shipment from King Louis XVI in France to the Russian Imperial Court—amazingly, when opened, the champagne was perfectly preserved. Now, Veuve Clicquot has created its own champagne time capsule of sorts, sending 50 bottles down in a custom cage. The champagnes will stay in their underwater cellar for the next 50 years, which has been named the Aland Vault after the original shipwreck.
