COGNAC, France, Sept. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - On September 18th, 2014, distinguished guests gathered at the Abbaye de Bassac, in Cognac (France) to witness the 9th edition of the Charity Gala dinner "La Part des Anges", and a new page in the House of Rémy Martin history being written. Attendees watched the breath-taking moment when the single magnum decanter, from the Rémy Martin Cellar Masters' Perpetual Reserve was revealed during a captivating auction.
Celebrating nearly three centuries of history, the "290th Anniversary Coupe" from the House of Rémy Martin is a true journey through time.
The story of this coupe is unique: it is a perpetual reserve of eaux-de-vie which never runs out, sustained over the years by four generations of cellar masters.
Each one in turn carefully preserved Rémy Martin's most exceptional eaux-de-vie in a secret location, passing them on to their successor. The "290th Anniversary Coupe" is exclusively Grande Champagne Cognac. In line with this tradition, the remarkably talented Pierrette Trichet has perfected the collection with her own selection of eaux-de-vie, before offering it to Baptiste Loiseau, the new cellar master, who will take up the duty to protect it and enrich it. To celebrate its 290th anniversary, the House of Rémy Martin chose to extract a small quantity of this perpetual reserve, testimony of this perennial transmission.
Released in a single magnum decanter, this iconic bottle of the House of Rémy Martin appears in a lacquered wooden casket.
