Titanic Beers and Champagne Bottles



The Titanic’s ship’s manifest tell us that the grand vessel left from Southampton dock with over 20000 bottles of wine, beer and the liquor. Included here are 4 of the bottles salvaged from the wreckage. Despite their corks having been depressed by water-pressure, these bottles represent a view through the looking glass at the lavish lifestyles of the first-class passengers.
