Louis XIII Cognac Early 1970s bottle, Octagonal Red Silk Box
This is a spectacular example of the Louis XIII Tres Vieille Cognac Baccarat decanter which holds Grande Champagne cognac aged between 40 and 100 years. Presented in the original silk box with original tag and crystal bottle stopper almost exactly as it left the distillery half a century ago.
In 1724, a young winegrower named Rémy Martin started to produce cognac under his own name. What started out as a small operation would go on to become one of the most famous names in the history of distilled wines. So successful were his first few decades that he would attract the attention of King Louis XV, who in 1738 personally granted him the incredibly rare permission to plant new vines in recognition of his fine product. After Rémy Martin died in 1773, the family business passed through the hands of several different family members and close associates of the company, before merging with Cointreau in 1990 to form the Remy Cointreau group. Rémy Martin VSOP was launched in 1927 and today remains the best-selling VSOP cognac of all time. At the end of the Second World War a bold decision was made when the then head of the business, André Renaud decides that the house will exclusively produce cognac made from Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne crus only. After almost 300 years of production, today Rémy Martin is one of the most celebrated cognac producers in history and a well-established symbol of luxury.
