Kool & The Gang – a band that needs no introduction. Since 1964, it has taken the world by storm with its back-to-back hits. Now, as it stands, Kool & The Gang is one of the world’s most iconic bands. Of course, this is nothing new. What is new, however, is Le Kool Champagne, founded by none other than Robert ‘Kool’ Bell. Exemplifying Kool’s avid love for champagne, Le Kool Champagne is a premium brand that promises sublime luxury with every sip. Join us as we immerse ourselves in a journey of love, music, and celebrating good times.
It’s no secret that, even as far back as 1964, Kool has had a knack for creating meaning from the little things in life. Be it through Kool & The Gang’s music, or through the energy that he’s put out into the universe, his influence shines through almost every aspect of the modern world. Kool & The Gang is a household name – one associated with happiness, celebration, and uplifting atmospheres. As such, it only seemed natural to convert this essence into something that could be tasted, as well as heard. With a long-lasting love for bubbles, Kool finally founded Le Kool Champagne, a luxury brand that aimed to continue the band’s rich legacy, all whilst pleasing the tastebuds no matter the blend.
However, to truly understand the depth of Le Kool Champagne’s origins, we must first venture back a little. Before Le Kool Champagne, there was Just Kool Enterprises. Created by Kool and his late wife Sakinah Bell, Just Kool Enterprises sought to leverage the iconic Kool name to encourage a union between generations of music lovers. Just Kool Enterprises was never meant to be a simple celebrity brand, however – it had meaning. Its existence represented a new endeavour, shared between husband and wife, to connect with the people that meant the most around them. Music lovers. Enjoyers of luxury. Regardless of generation, Just Kool Enterprises existed as a means to connect the world.
It was only upon connecting with business partners Olfa and Mohamed Moretta did Kool take the leap into founding The Just Kool Party and Le Kool Champagne. He had always envisioned having his own brand from Europe, and adapted his love for champagne into something truly special. Of course, with such high expectations of what Le Kool Champagne could be, Kool was eager to establish connections with only the best vineyards the world had to offer. As such, Le Kool Champagne avidly sought out Grand Cru vineyards that truly understood what it took to craft specialty champagnes, right down to how to treat the grape on the vine. Finally, a collaboration with Estate Paul Berthelot was established.
Renowned for its five generation long development, Maison Berthelot is a multi-vintage producer that has spent its years since 1884 nurturing its grapes, vines, and the surrounding environment in order to garner beyond perfect results with every barrel. Located on sixteen hectares of Premier Cru vineyards in Dizy and Avernay, as well as the Grand Cru Village of Ay, Berthelot delivers on the promise of concocting nothing short of premium, luxurious champagnes. Its worldwide reputation stands as a testament to this unerring devotion to quality, and it’s for this very reason that Kool chose his own plot of land upon which Le Kool Champagne’s grapes would be grown and harvested.
From there, it was simply a matter of concocting the champagne to the highest possible degree of quality. After all, Kool intended to place tangibility over title, and therefore sought the most thoughtful manner of brewing. In order for champagne to truly hold a flavour that’s bound to hit, regardless of palate, it must spend a minimum of three years in the cellar to reach its peak flavour. However, Le Kool Champagne’s brews are given between three and seven years to fully mature. As such, their flavours take on a completely new essence – one that magnificently captures the richness of the blend. In addition, each of its champagnes are cuveès, the first pour out of every barrel, guaranteeing above favourable flavour, regardless of a person’s taste.
For Le Kool Champagne, part of the wonder is witnessing individuals from all walks of life sample its delicacies, only to learn afterwards that their drinks have been crafted from the mind behind Kool & The Gang. It brings an incredibly humble nature to the brand, and perfectly encapsulates everything that Kool intended it to be upon undertaking this ambitious venture. Champagne is oft linked with special occasions, during which each person simply wishes to sit and enjoy a good glass of the best champagne that the market has to offer. As a result of its tireless efforts to source its products from the world’s best vineyards, Le Kool Champagne has gone beyond the name behind the brand, and has established itself as an entity that anybody would be lucky to indulge in.
Once Kool, Olfa, and Mohamed had found a vineyard that lived up to the quality that they had in mind upon starting the brand, Le Kool Champagne could finally begin making its imprint on the world. Having started as an off-premise brand that began building a foundation throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Le Kool Champagne aimed to be available at customers’ doorsteps in under an hour. As such, it became a Drizly.com brand, and eventually evolved into conquering the delivery sphere. Now, Le Kool Champagne is available on Uber Eats applications, presenting an accessibility to luxury that hadn’t been seen up until that point. In short, Le Kool Champagne wanted to inspire delight within its customers, and is now often praised by some of the most respected sommeliers and top chefs in the world, such as Loic Chavasse Frète of Evian Resorts, MGM’s Douglas Kim, and Celebrity Chef David Burke.
However, Le Kool Champagne’s expansive reach doesn’t end with some of the most distinguished restaurant menus around the globe. In addition to being presented to some of the planet’s most discerning customers, Le Kool Champagne also finds itself present on Norwegian Cruise Lines worldwide, inviting lavish splendour in the process. Le Kool Champagne is also an official sponsor of the now sold-out Groove Cruise 20th Anniversary Celebration, hosted on Norwegian Encore. Truly, marking celebration is at the very top of Le Kool Champagne’s checklist. Each time it’s able to consistently serve as the bottle of bubbly that everyone looks forward to popping to reign in the festivities.
Currently, Le Kool Champagne has a major presence within New York, New Jersey, Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Nevada, and California, with big upcoming plans to expand distribution across the globe in 2024. It recognises that, despite its name and wealth of passion, it’s a relatively new company, and still has a way to come to reach the level of some of the world’s most famous beverages. That isn’t to say, however, that it’s simply waiting for the chance to explode onto the market. Quite the opposite – Le Kool Champagne makes its own opportunities. It uses its initiative to grow and flourish, creating new openings to thrive within the industry.
This is all a direct result of its incredibly tight-knit team, the members of which each holding the same amount of passion for the brand as Kool himself. Their inspiring mindset plays a huge role in the success of the branding, and it’s thanks to the unwavering dedication to help Le Kool Champagne reach the masses that it has gained such an immense amount of traction in recent years. At its core, Le Kool Champagne is actively seeking the next place to make its mark, not once faltering in discovering the perfect spaces to enter. Its luxury is designed for everyone to enjoy, regardless of palate, and it’s determined to make its presence known one way or another.
A perfect example of this relentless mindset is their recent collaboration with Bulova – Accutron. As an homage to uplift women, they just released their Le Kool First Lady Legacy timepieces.
Le Kool Champagne signifies a union that no other champagne brand has managed to create – a harmony between music and champagne. By combining some of the best flavours, sourced from the world’s most renowned vineyards, it has captured the very essence of Kool’s love for both crafts. In addition, Le Kool Champagne represents the dream of a husband and his late wife, with its signature bottles serving to empower the legacy of such an era-defining pair of individuals. Kool & The Gang sparked a revolution in music, and Le Kool Champagne is already well on its way to having the same effect on the champagne market.
On the eve of Kool & The Gang’s 60th anniversary, Le Kool Champagne has already promised a wide variety of exciting plans to look out for. It seeks to truly take itself to the next level, be it through its involvement with The Superbowl 2024 in Vegas, or its exciting, aforementioned global distribution. No matter how it manifests, this exciting future seems to be reflective of the brightness that Kool & The Gang first introduced to the world some six decades ago, and it’s incredibly exciting to envision a world in which Le Kool Champagne is known by everyone around the globe.

Le Kool Champagne embodies Kool’s desire to honour his wife’s memory, all whilst bringing together individuals from all walks of life, just as he did all the way back in 1964. Partner this with their Just Kool After Party concept and the release of Kool & The Gang’s new album, ‘People Just Want To Have Fun’, which frequently references Le Kool Champagne, and you’ve got a brand that revels in bringing together new and old fans alike.
