In June the Rémy Martin Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6 was launched in the Netherlands, we were invited for a wonderful launch diner at the magnificent Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam.
In this post I’d like to show you some pictures of the evening. I will also tell something about the delicious food we had.
As a starter we got smoked! mozzarella with melon, a very special combination. Then we got a very nicely smoked salmon, scallops with bacon, lamb from Texels (a small island above the Netherlands) and a delicious dessert. …
The one hundred year journey is now approaching its glorious conclusion. The precious spirit that will be Louis XIII has entered its final phase of refinement, in the ancient casks that we call tierçons. The cellar master is watching for that moment when the spirit will touch its state of perfection.
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.

We all love Rémy Martin Louis XIII, therefore I decided to make the ultimate Louis XIII post with all available video’s.
“Louis XIII is not a Cognac,” they say at Rémy. “Put simply, it’s a moment.” Why is it a moment? Figure this: each bottle is a blend of 1,200 Cognacs, ranging from 40 to 100 years old, across three generations of Cellar Masters, resulting from the combined labor of 10,000 people.Hope you enjoy!
We already spoke a lot about the iconic Louis XIII Cognac of Rémy Martin, the last years many special editions where presented of this exclusive Cognac in the Baccarat Decanter. Therefore we made a list of these specials.
In 1999 Rémy Martin launched the Louis XIII Rendez Vous, in 2001 Rémy Martin launched the Louis XIII Diamant, in 2007 they introduced the Louis XIII Black Pearl, in 2010 the Louis XIII Rare Cask and in 2011 the Louis XIII Jeroboam.
The Rémy Martin Louis XIII Rare Cask 43,8 is one of the most expensive Cognacs in the world.
Unfortunatly to expensive to taste for many people.
Luckily Rémy Martin made a beautiful video about this awesome cognac, and someone in a liquor store had the possibility to unpack the Rare Cask box in front of the camera…
