It is often said that there are more people who have traveled to space than there are Masters of Wine and while that may be very true, there are many more MWs than there are cosmic cats.

In a uniquely Gallic surge of innovation, 1963 witnessed France entering the feline space race via a cat named Felicette.

Now immortalised on a wine that pays homage to those that think outside the box, Felicette is for all those who dream to be a little different.

Felicette was actually the understudy to a cat named Felix. Unfortunately for Felix, he went missing shortly before the first mission and so Felicette took his place. There is perhaps a more wistful look in the eyes of Felix who also appears on the label.
