Louis XIII is the epitome of luxury, an icon in the world of spirits. At a wondrous reveal in Venice earlier this year, Louis XIII unveiled Rare Cask 42.1, an even more rarefied cognac presented in a Baccarat decanter (the jeroboam weighs in at 18 pounds). “We have eau-de-vie older than Canada,” notes Eric Vallat, CEO of Rémy Cointreau (parent company of Louis XIII), a fact that highlights the preciousness of this spirit. Wish to add this Rare Cask 42.1 to your collection? Act fast, as the tierçon was able to provide just enough liquid for 775 numbered bottles. The Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.1’s black crystal decanter is accompanied by crystal glasses ornamented with quatrefoils and a serving pipette.
