COGNAC, France, March 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Selected guests from 17 countries
gathered in Udaipur, 'the City of Sunrise', to celebrate with panache
the global launch of LOUIS XIII RARE CASK 42,6 - only the second such
cask to join the RARE CASK collection.
A "Rare Cask" is a single, extremely rare barrel discovered among the
hundreds of century-old tierçons that will one day go to make LOUIS
Among the guests were Pierrette Trichet, gifted Cellar Master of the
House of Rémy Martin, and her deputy Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau. It
was they who revealed this one utterly Rare Cask of LOUIS XIII that
Nature has endowed with an excellence that is all its own. No two
tierçons are ever quite the same size, and this Rare Cask is one of the
smaller ones: sufficient for just 738 decanters distinguished by a
small but significant increase in alcohol, beyond the expected 40
percent. This new Rare Cask expression takes its title from its unique
alcohol degree of 42,6 degrees of alcohol.
LOUIS XIII RARE CASK 42,6 celebrates the classic LOUIS XIII blend of
1,200 eau-de-vies, 100 years in the making, here featuring salient
aromas that are unique to this one precious cask - notes of plum and
dates, mingling with flavours of gingerbread, prune stone and ginger,
punctuated by a final touch of tobacco leaf.
The splendour of Udaipur made this the perfect setting to welcome such
rare treasure from the House of Rémy Martin. Udaipur in Rajasthan is
the capital of the ancient kingdom of Mewar, home to the world's most
ancient surviving royal dynasty. All around are the rich tokens of the
maharajah's legacy - devoted to the pursuit of excellence, as is LOUIS
LOUIS XIII RARE CASK 42,6 - all decanters will be serial numbered from
001 to 738, available from LOUIS XIII certified retailers, best
palaces, hotels and restaurants (LOUIS XIII Fortress network).
Suggested retail price, 18 000 €.
