A new, limited-edition Rémy Martin XO has been created in partnership with Parisian gilding studio, Atelier Thiery. This collaboration is all about Atelier Thiery’s own touch on the Rémy Martin XO decanter. The limited-edition Rémy Martin XO decanter is most characterized by its gold leaf, made in part from 18-karat gold. Its presence is beyond mere aesthetics as it serves as an illustration of the parallels between cognac and gold. Each bottle has been inspired by its blend of up to 400 Rémy Martin Eaux-de-vie, which is sourced exclusively from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, located in the Cognac region. The customized carafes are numbered, featuring a unique front and neck label. The decanter’s box also takes inspiration from the ancient artisanal technique of verre églomisé. The special edition box is designed with gold foils to impart a mirror-like texture to the box.
Designer Charles Kaisin has also created a sculpture, which pays tribute to Rémy Martin’s founding in 1724 with a collection of 1,724 individual centaurs, each gilded in 18-karat gold by the masters at Atelier Thiery. The commemorative sculpture will be on display at La Maison Rémy Martin in Cognac, France.
This collaboration between Rémy Martin and Atelier Thiery also bears the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) label. This limited-edition Rémy Martin XO x Atelier Thiery bottle is available in limited quantities both in fine stores and online at Reserve Bar for $229.
