A legendary Cognac from the prestigious house of Remy Martin, containing Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie aged between 40 and 100 years and packaged in a gorgeous Baccarat decanter
Blended from Cognacs aged up to 100 years, this deliciously complex spirit defies description, as does its elegant Baccarat crystal decanter. Savour this on its own after an unforgettably fine meal
Louis XIII Cognac—one of the world’s most coveted and expensive spirits—has just released a 50ml bottle: The Louis XIII Miniature.
And this is great news for enthusiasts of the fine spirit, which typically retails for a minimum of $3,000. (Some vintages, such as the Rare Casks and the Black Pearl Anniversary Edition, can set collectors back five figures.)
“We are thrilled to provide consumers with an option to experience one century in a bottle in a small-sized decanter,” says Yves de Launay, vice president of Rémy Cointreau U.S.A. “The Louis XIII Miniature is a true luxury that can either be offered as a gift or for your own personal enjoyment
It should be noted that the Miniature is not a diluted or inferior version of the traditional 750ml vessel. And it’s also not being marketed as a limited-edition offering—so yes, it’d make for an exquisite 21st birthday or Valentine’s gift. It’s created with the same craft and care: The Cognac is created by blending up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie. And it even comes packaged in its own small coffret and gold-adorned Baccarat decanter.
For those who have yet to experience Louis XIII, the business move on Rémy Cointreau’s part to create the Miniature presents an incredible opportunity to try something spectacularly rarefied for a fraction of the cost.
