Louis XIII adds to Rare Cask range

Rémy Cointreau-owned Cognac Louis XIII has unveiled 775 special edition decanters as part of its Rare Cask Collection.

Only 775 bottles have been created, which will be released in June 2023

Rare Cask 42.1 is the latest limited edition Cognac in the Rare Cask series, selected by cellar master Baptiste Loiseau.

The range currently comprises Rare Cask 42.1, 42.6 and 43.8.

“While the singularity of a Rare Cask rests on the wonder of nature and the ageing of eaux-de-vie, the know-how that it requires to produce is an art form, passed on from generation to generation, where each cellar master perpetuates the gestures of his predecessors,” said Loiseau.

Clocking in at 42.1% ABV, all limited edition Cognacs are presented in 700ml bottles.

Each of Louis XIII’s tierçons – handmade casks that are larger than a standard cask – are made from French oak trees that take over 100 years to reach maturity, containing eaux-de-vie sourced from Grande Champagne’s terroir.

The 775 decanters will be available globally from June 2023.

“Ten years have passed since the latest Rare Cask was revealed,” added Jean-Philippe Hecquet, CEO of the House of Rémy Martin.

“A singular tierçon set apart for the unicity of its aromas, a true wonder reflecting the power of nature, which sets the Rare Cask Collection apart.”

Rare Cask 43.8 was released in 2009 by previous cellar master Pierrette Trichet, and Rare Cask 42.6 was created in 2013 when Loiseau and Trichet collaborated.

In 2018, the brand unveiled a futuristic decanter that incorporated near field communication (NFC) technology.
