Australians clearly have a lot to celebrate - we're buying more bubbly than ever. Champagne sales have surged by nearly a quarter, cementing Australia's place as the sixth largest importer in the world, just behind Belgium. The UK took out the top spot, followed by the US, Germany and Japan. In 2015, we imported 8.1 million bottles of champagne – an increase of 24.31 per cent on the previous year's figure of 6.5 million bottles.
