Louiseau will take over from Pierrette Trichet, who became the industry’s first female Cellar Master when she was assigned to the role back in 2001.
Guests at the lunch enjoyed bespoke cocktails named the “Pierrette” and “Baptiste” after the incoming and outgoing Cellar Masters before they both shared stories and experiences from their careers so far working for Rémy Martin.
During his speech, Mr Loiseau, who had worked alongside Ms Trichet at Rémy Martin for the past seven years, said: “I am honoured to be part of this lineage of Cellar Masters, who have passed on their secrets and expertise from one to another during the last century to ensure the consistency of Rémy Martin’s legacy will be continued.
“I’m looking forward to this new chapter and the great challenge to carry forward this tradition in the future.”
The event also offered guests an exclusive tasting of Rémy Martin Centaure de Diamant, which launches in the UK this month. The last creation of Cellar Master Pierrette Trichet before her departure, the drink features the most outstanding Fine Champagne eaux‑de‑vie from the famous Cognac region, aged between 20 and 50 years old.
Centaure de Diamant is now exclusively available at Harrods for £800, with further limited distribution from July onwards.
Superyachts.com will be featuring an exclusive interview with Rémy Martin’s new Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau in the coming weeks.
