MONTREAL, June 7, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The BC Liquor Stores is pleased to launch the sale of Louis XIII Le Jeroboam, the only bottle of its kind available for purchase in Canada.

At $25 000, this limited edition cognac, an impressive blend of 1200 eaux-de-vie is presented in a 3L format and include four Pillet Cristal glasses, a Pillet shelf display, a pipette and a LOUIS XIII book.
Commencing June 7th 2012, interested consumers may express their desire to purchase this carafe of LOUIS XIII Le Jéroboam by contacting the Store Manager at the following BC Liquor store locations: Park Royal, Richmond Brighouse, Alberni & Bute, and 39th & Cambie. A replica of LOUIS XIII Le Jeroboam will be displayed at the 39th & Cambie until June 21st.
Louis XIII is a product immersed in history as evidenced by its crystal bottle. The decanter is inspired by a metal flask lost during a 16th century religious war between the Duke of Anjou and the Prince of Condé in France. Found in the Cognac region in 1850, it was given to the Rémy Martin family as a vessel for its most exquisite eaux-de-vie, starting with Louis XIII in 1874. Today, Louis XIII continues to add to its legacy with the introduction of the Jeroboam cognac.
A masterpiece addition to the Louis XIII collection, the Jeroboam is reserved for a privileged few. There are just 100 bottles throughout the world. With a decanter four times larger than a traditional bottle, the Jeroboam definitely makes an impression. Each Jeroboam bottle is a unique work of art, meticulously crafted by nine crystal master artisans from the Cristallerie de Sèvres. Five kilograms of crystal are selected, blown and shaped to create the signature bottle. It goes without saying that these exquisite decanters are produced with only the most careful attention.
