Sitting in my inbox today was a ‘Greeting from the House of Remy Martin,’ to inform me of their new rare cask for their Louis XIII blend. While normally I’m not too fussed about launches of new beverages and the such, this bottle caught my eye. There is something very sensual about this little decanter, almost as if it belongs on a deep oak bar counter with 1920s flapper girls and sparkling crystals surrounding it. It does retail for a whopping 18,000 euros, so looks like this economy will not help the sales of this fine creature. If I did have a spare chunk of change though, this would be the perfect gift for a wealthy tycoon.
