Remy Martin’s $7,600 Cognac Marks Paris World Fair

By Paul Joseph

The Expo 2020 world fair comes to Dubai this October and to mark the occasion the House of Remy Martin has launched a special edition cognac.

The cognac is also designed to honour the Paris World Fair of 1900, when a Louis XIII cognac was showcased by cognac producer Paul-Emile Remy Martin. 

Among some 83,000 exhibitors, the cognac earned high praise for its quality and exclusivity, and now in honour of that event the House of Remy Martin has created Louis XIII Time Collection: Tribute to City of Lights – 1900.

Limited to 2,000 numbered decanters, the receptacles have undergone a number of renovations since the turn of the 20th century, including 13 dentelle spikes instead of 10, an elegant neck and seven fleurs-de-lys decorated in 18-karat champagne gold. The pieces have also been hand-blown by Hermes-owned crystal manufacturer Saint-Louis.

Furthermore, the special edition’s stopper’s cork is embedded with an NFC chip, ensuring the product authenticity is guaranteed, as well as offering owners access to the Louis XIII Society, comprising of a private club with exclusive content, unique experiences, and personalised services.

The LOUIS XIII Time Collection II is available through direct sales from the House of Remy Martin for $10,600.
