You’re looking for the perfect holiday gift to a true connoisseur, this is it! Rémy Cointreau Global Travel Retail launched its Rémy Martin Louis XIII Rare Cask Cognac at the TFWA World Exhibition last month. For the first time in the history of Louis XIII, cellar master Pierrette Trichet has decided to present one cask as a special edition to be enjoyed by true connoisseurs of the French-made Remy Martin cognac.

The first edition comprises of limited numbered black crystal decanters each designated ‘43.8′ for the alcoholic strength that is the distinguishing mark of the cask. Through a combination of factors such as climate and humidity during its aging, the cask has developed an extra strength of 43.8 instead of 40 degrees alcohol.

The craftsmen of French-house Baccarat have created a fresh version of the iconic Louis XIII decanter, whose shape was inspired by an ancient metal flask that was found in the mid 19th Century on the site of a 16th Century battleground. Handcrafted in black crystal, more than 50 operations are necessary to make a Louis XIII decanter, all of which must be executed by a team of some 20 master craftsmen working together before the glass cools. The neck of the decanter is dressed in palladium.

The decanter is presented in a “coffret” forged in metal. Mirrors and internal lighting aim to display the lustre of the black crystal, and the neck of the decanter is secured by a metal clasp that is designed to present the black crystal stopper like a precious jewel. The “coffret” is embellished with a quatrefoil design inspired by the royal fleur-de-lys of France, aiming to offer a contemporary rendition of a traditional motif that celebrates the historic roots of Louis XIII.

Louis XIII Rare Cask is described as a “supremely rare” limited-edition Cognac, drawn from a single cask; only 786 black crystal decanters will be available worldwide and each bottle comes with a price of €10,000 (about $15,000).
