Product Description

Our limited-edition LOUIS XIII Time Collection – The Origin – 1874 decanter contains our LOUIS XIII blend of up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie, made from grapes grown in Grande Champagne. This fiery clear liquid is slowly aged in century-old oak barrels, resulting in the unmistakable taste of LOUIS XIII cognac first created by Paul-Émile Rémy Martin in 1874. It is the role of our Cellar Masters to maintain the same quality, consistency and essence of LOUIS XIII to ensure that each exclusive LOUIS XIII decanter delivers the same taste and aromas every time. The silhouette of LOUIS XIII Time Collection: The Origin – 1874 decanter is modelled on a 16th-century flask uncovered near the site of the Battle of Jarnac, France. Owned by LOUIS XIII founder Paul-Émile Rémy Martin, the flask inspired LOUIS XIII's exclusive decanter design. As the first in the limited-edition Time Collection, The Origin – 1874 decanter commemorates the original design of the first-ever LOUIS XIII decanters. Unique details include a central fleur-de-lys medallion and neck in champagne gold, 13 dentelle crystal spikes on each side and an exclusive stopper that takes the form of an upturned decanter. Each Time Collection – The Origin – 1874 decanter is hand blown by master crystal artisans. This edition has been released at 2,500 units.

FAQs

Cognac is a type of brandy that takes its name from the Cognac region of France. Made from twice-distilled white wine, Cognac is distilled in copper pots and aged in wooden barrels. The production techniques of Cognac are very specific, requiring a particular type of grapes, distillation practices and aging requirements.
Hennessy is a Cognac that is made in France but was started by an Irishman. Despite the common belief that Hennessy is a type of whiskey, it is made from grapes — grapes that have been twice-distilled and aged. The only notable similarity it bears to whiskey is that both are aged in oak barrels.
Cognac consumed as an appetizer is usually served neat. It’s also common practice to add a little bit of water, which makes the drink fruitier and more floral. Some water can also help to bring out the subtle spiciness of Cognac while also making it a bit smoother to drink.
