Black Pearl is a limited edition cognac from Rémy Martin’s stock of Louis XIII. Only one tiercon (a type of oak barrel) has been used, meaning only 786 bottles are available for purchase. The custom decanter, hand-crafted by artisans at Baccarat, is black crystal with platinum accents. The Louis XIII cognac inside contains a blend of more than 1,200 lots up to 100 years old.
To accommodate a wider range of budgets and to give more people a chance to try their exclusive cognacs, Rémy Martin offers “The Perfect Pour,” a program at 550 select bars, restaurants and hotels nationwide where enthusiasts can purchase samples of either the Louis XIII or the Louis XIII Black Pearl Magnum in three different sizes.
Platinum (2 oz.), $3,000
Infinity (1 oz.), $1,500
Precious (1/2 oz.), $750
Limited edition cognacs are always expensive but a new level may have been reached with the Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac. The new release is limited to 786 bottles, the number of decanters that can be taken from one tiercon, the type of oak barrel used by Rémy Martin to age Louis XIII. The spirit is created from 1,200 eaux de vie aged 40 100 years. The Louis XIII Black Pearl decanter is made of crystal that has a silvery gleam like polished hematite and the decanter is finished with platinum fleur de lis designs.
A very rare Cognac fetches $34 000 at Vancouver International Airport! A Rémy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl 1.5l bottle was sold to a Chinese couple. They were on their way back home to China… and probably Monsieur found a fantastic bottle, before boarding.
Honey, I gotta’ get a Black Pearl rare cognac before boarding
The bottle of rare Cognac has been waiting for this buyer since February. It’s one of 786 bottles, a very limited edition, and a product diversification of Rémy’s product line Louis XIII. The Black Pearl was released in 2008 and comes in a crystal decanter.
Apparently this bottle was one of the last available in the world, an airport manager said.
