Thomas Hine, an Englishman who was sent to the Cognac at an age of 16 by his father, rubbing the art of trading in Jarnac, is not the founder of the company which was established in 1763 on the banks of the Charente. Thomas has won the trust of founder James Delamain, and the heart of his daughter, Elizabeth. Since 1817, the name Hine connects the house to his name.
Hennessy released of another artist-designed special edition bottle label. Following in the footsteps of KAWS and Futura, coveted São Paulo twin brothers artist duo Os Gêmeos teamed up with the world-renowned French cognac house to customize the bottle with their distinct Brazilian folklore-inspired graffiti art.
At first we thought the press-release was related to the earlier introduced Louis XIII Rare Cask 43,8, however it seems the Rare Cask 42,6 is a complete new product which is great! Rémy Martin’s objective is to introduce new releases of the Louis XIII Rare Cask editions each 1-2 year.
The Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6 will be limited to only 738 crystal carafes and will be on sale at selected travel-retail outlets in Europe, US and Singapore.
Baron Otard released a limited-edition XO Gold exclusively in duty-free and travel-retail. Baron Otard XO Gold Precious Edition is available in one-liter bottles presented in a special gold-coloured pack and was designed to give the cognac “an even stronger presence” in-store, according to the company.
The quality of this XO Gold Precious Edition is the same as the “normal” XO Gold.
Rémy Martin introduced another beautiful Limited Edition on the market, this time the VSOP Mature Cask Finish Cocktail Expert Case, a complete Cocktail kit in a box made of glass.
The Cocktail Expert Case includes a bottle of Remy Martin VSOP Mature Cask Finish, 2 Tumbler glasses of Remy Martin, a book of cocktail recipes and a shaker, a strainer and a jiggler of brushed steel.
A few days ago we already mentioned about the Hennessy / Futura collaboration. In line with this partnership Futura also made some Converse shoes in the same design as the Hennessy X Futura bottle which are being sold in as an even more exclusive “Friends & Family Special Edition”. This edition is being sold at select liquor and spirit stores near you (USA) in the coming weeks.
Awesome, after the great success of their KAWS collaboration, Hennessy hooked up with artist Futura to create another limited edition of their VS Bottle!
The bottle features Futura’s signature helix visuals in bright colorways on the front of the bottle and on the cap. We hope to have a closer look at this amazing collaboration very soon!
It starts to be a true habit for Rémy Martin to launch a special edition for Cannes Film Festival each year (see the 2010 and 2011 posts on Cognac Fans). This years bottle is dressed in gold and light, following the beautiful “Red Carpet” version in 2010 and a black and gold bottle produced in 2011.
Eye-catching displays featuring the same gold and light theme promote the Rémy Martin VSOP Cannes Limited Edition in many of the selected airports, the Cognac house said.
