Remy Martin dates back to 1724, but its most iconic spirit, Louis XIII, didn’t hit the market until 150 years later. Louis XIII is a blend of 1,200 eaux de vie, some up to 100 years old, from the Grande Champagne region of France. It’s aged in Limousine oak casks, and its name pays homage to the King of France, during whose reign the Remy Martin family settled in the Cognac region.
The Louis XIII decanter is a notable site at better bars and restaurants around the world, where a 2 ounce pour can run upward of $150. And with a bottle typically priced at or above $1,500, it’s the epitome of a luxury spirit.
That said, Louis XIII by Remy Martin is readying for some big product news. As part of this announcement, they’re sending out samples to spirits and luxury bloggers around the world, which will result in a virtual world tour of the new product. Stay tuned as we report back with our findings.
