MARKETING/DESIGN/CONSUMER TRENDS/INSPIRATIONS Cognac & Brandy News for Consumers & Industry Experts
Connoisseurs of fine cognac can now enjoy a snifter of one of the finest in the world — Louis XIII Rare Cask de Remy Martin — when they visit Rick’s Cabaret in New York City or the Next Level of Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami.
A special decanter of the rare cognac will be delivered Wednesday night at 8:30 pm to Rick’s Cabaret at 50 West 33rd Street in Manhattan, by an armored truck with three guards. Two cabaret entertainers will then escort the cask through the club, before placing it in a special Louis XIII Tower in the third floor VIP suite, just in time for an elegant welcoming party from 7-10 pm.
This cognac with a deep amber color was discovered by the Remy Martin cellar master Pierrette Trichet, who describes it as “a miracle, an accident of nature.” The rare cask cognac is aged up to 100 years and has been bottled in 786 exclusive, hand-crafted, true Baccarat black crystal decanters, each of which required the work of 20 people to make.
Noted wine writer Brian Freedman has called it “unquestionably the single greatest spirit I’ve ever tasted. Swirling it and putting my nose in the glass brought to mind images of Alice falling through the looking glass: Aromas of white and milk chocolate, mushrooms, prunes, vanilla, spice, beeswax, sandalwood, and tobacco fluttered by and led to flavors that ran the gamut from prunes and figs to vanilla pod, more mushroom, and even a hint of mint.”
