COGNAC, France /PRNewswire/ —
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 tiercons that will one day go to make LOUIS XIII.
No two tiercons are ever quite the same size, and this Rare Cask is one of the smaller ones.
Among the guests were Pierrette Trichet, gifted Cellar Master of the House of Remy 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 tiercons 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 Remy 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 XIII.
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 EUR.
