It was bound to happen eventually. The fact that it took Miami this long to invent a Champagne machine gun is actually quite surprising considering that both items played an essential role in the formation of this great city. But it’s finally here. And it can be yours for only $459.
Jeremy Touitou is the man behind the invention, which, he says, is “the world’s first Champagne gun.” Touitou runs a Wynwood-based company that specializes in nightlife supplies. He first entered the industry five years ago as a side job. Under the name King of Sparklers, he sold the sparklers that many nightclubs attach to VIP bottles of Champagne — the idea being other patrons will find themselves so deep in envy at the sight of the sparkly bottles that they will practically break their fingers reaching for the nearest credit card to order their own sparkly bottle of very expensive Champagne. And, yes, it actually works, Touitou says. His clients tell him they see a roughly 30 percent increase in sales using the sparklers.
