LOUIS XIII Cognac: from 1cl to 9L
With its distinctive shape, dentelles and fleur-de-lys motif, the LOUIS XIII decanter is a true mark of elegance that elevate the LOUIS XIII tasting ritual .
The design of the LOUIS XIII decanter draws its inspiration from a flask that Paul-Émile Rémy Martin, founder of LOUIS XIII, owned. Held dear to a French chevalier until his last moments on the battlefield of Jarnac near Cognac, it was lost on the frontlines in 1569. Unearthed only centuries later, much like the Cognac Paul-Emile would soon reveal to the world, this glass artefact would become the mould for his LOUIS XIII decanter.
An object of Elegance
Each LOUIS XIII decanter is created by renown crystal manufacturers in Europe. Craftsmen use their unparalleled savoir-faire to handcraft the LOUIS XIII designs. Hand-blown and hand-cut, each decanter highlights the elegance of the amber liquid held within. It is a masterpiece. LOUIS XIII Cognac needs to be enjoyed slowly, with time, and using all the senses. Every individual moment of the tasting ritual should be savored, starting with a visual appreciation of LOUIS XIII Cognac. In that respect, the sublime craftsmanship of each decanter contributes to the rich sensory experience of LOUIS XIII
