Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.6 makes its debut in India
March 12, 2013: Orchestrating an ambience fit for a king, selected guests from 17 countries gathered in Udaipur, India, to celebrate 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 tierçons that will one day make Louis XIII. Pierrette Trichet, gifted Cellar Master of the House of Rémy Martin, and her deputy Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau, revealed this one utterly Rare Cask of Louis XIII. No two tierçons 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 per cent, thus the unique title based on the alcohol degree of 42.6 degrees.
Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.6 celebrates the classic Louis XIII blend of 1,200 eau-de-vies, 100 years in the making, 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.
Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.6 – with all decanters serial numbered from 001 to 738, will be available at Louis XIII certified retailers, best palaces, hotels and restaurants.
Suggested retail price: 18,000 Euros
