G. H. Mumm & Cie is a Champagne house founded in 1827 and based in Reims, France. G.H. Mumm is one of the largest Champagne houses and is currently ranked 4th globally based on number of bottles sold. The company is owned by Pernod Ricard.

G.H. Mumm was the official sponsor of F1 racing from 2000 until 2015 and provided the champagne bottles for the podium celebrations after each race.

G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge is also the official champagne of the Kentucky Derby and the Melbourne Cup. It was founded by three brothers: Jacobus, Gottlieb, and Phillip Mumm, German winemakers from the Rhine valley, along with G. Heuser and Friedrich Giesler on March 1, 1827, as P. A. Mumm Giesler et Co. P.A. were the initials of the Mumms’ father, Peter Arnold Mumm, a successful wine merchant from Solingen. Mumm’s label is famous for its red ribbon (Cordon Rouge), patterned after and resembling the red sash of the Grand Cross—the highest level of the French Legion of Honour.

The French confiscated all of the Mumm’s property, although they had lived in Champagne for almost a century before World War I, because they had never become French citizens.
