Twin Crystal Glasses
A set of two large size “Facets of LOUIS XIII” glasses, exclusively designed for LOUIS XIII by world-renowned French designer Christophe Pillet, to expose and enhance the multifaceted characteristics of our cognac, perfect for a 4 cl glass of LOUIS XIII Cognac.
The LOUIS XIII tasting experience
LOUIS XIII cognac represents the culmination of patience and unique savoir-faire and expertise, resulting in its unrivalled flavour profile. Such a product demands the same level of time, care and attention when tasting, in order to best appreciate its complex and individual aromas. With this in mind, we worked with world-renowned designer Christophe Pillet to create our bespoke "Facets of LOUIS XIII" glasses, with every detail painstakingly formulated to allow the multifaceted characteristics of LOUIS XIII cognac to shine through.
Behind the design of our "Facets of LOUIS XIII" cognac glasses
To create our "Facets of LOUIS XIII" glasses, Christophe Pillet was a natural choice. The designer brings with him decades of experience of luxurious design that blends the traditional and modern in a holistic way. Immersing himself in the history of LOUIS XIII, from walking through the Cognac vineyards to discovering the exceptional know-how passed down through the LOUIS XIII Cellar Masters, gave him a unique foundation on which to create the design.
Seeking to embody the refinement of the LOUIS XIII taste experience, he conceived the "Facets of LOUIS XIII" glass exclusively for LOUIS XIII. Noting that LOUIS XIII cognac is often enjoyed in settings where light is filtered, he used the delicate interplay of light in the glass to lend further vibrancy to the liquid held within. The glasses are finely carved with vertical grooves, and the tall-stemmed crystal glass takes its shape from the stylised form of a drop of water, allowing the complex aromas of LOUIS XIII cognac to be released.
Celebrate with LOUIS XIII
LOUIS XIII cognac is the perfect accompaniment to special moments in life, and our "Facets of LOUIS XIII" glasses have been designed with these celebrations in mind. When you clink two LOUIS XIII cognac glasses together they emit a crystal-clear extended G-sharp note. It is a sound so exceptional that we commissioned Paris-based pianist Yaron Herman to create a special composition. Featuring only the G-sharp note, Yaron's composition evolves through different octaves, rhythms and timbres to form a spectacular final piece that begins and ends with the chime of two "Facets of LOUIS XIII" glasses making a toast.
