Although the Rémy Martin house was founded in 1724, the art of blending aged reserve brandies was not introduced there until 1821, when Rémy Martin III began to preserve stock of his finest old eaux-de-vie. He passed his blending skills on to his son, Paul, who registered the Louis XIII brand in 1874 to signify its status as the finest prestige cuvée produced by Rémy Martin. The story of the famous Louis XIII decanter, however, begins rather earlier…Like the rest of the Louis XIII range, this extraordinary Jeroboam has been crafted as an exact replica of a metal carafe found on the site of the 1569 battle of Jarnac. The Fleur-de-Lys insignia on the original decanter suggests that it may have belonged to a member of one of the Royal houses who fought the battle. The decanter was acquired by Rémy Martin in the mid-19th century shortly after its discovery on the battlefield and was later donated to a Paris museum. Although Louis XIII was introduced in 1874, since 1920 only the Baccarat crystal house has been entrusted with crafting these exquisite replicas for Louis XIII cognac. [+]
