While a life is counted in years, LOUIS XIII is enjoyed over centuries. 150 years went by between the foundation of the House of Remy Martin in 1724 and the birth of LOUIS XIII. From 1821, Remy Martin III blended the first reserves of old eaux-de-vie to prepare for the future. His son, Paul-Emile Remy Martin, inherited this know-how and this passion. As the culminating point of a life dedicated to cognac, he created LOUIS XIII and officially registered the brand name in 1874.
Result of four generations of Cellar Masters, LOUIS XIII is a unique blend of 1,200 eaux-de-vie, all from Grande Champagne, and aged in tiercons, century-old casks made from Limousin oak.
Its name pays homage to the King of France, during whose reign the Remy Martin Family settled in the Cognac region. Its ionic decanter is a replica of a metal flask found on the battlefield of Jarnac. Some more reasons to believe that Louis XIII is the King of Cognacs.
