HENNESSY IN HONOR OF THE 44TH PRESIDENT OBAMA LIMITED EDITION VS COGNAC 1LITER
The origins of the Louis XIII cognac began in the early 1700s, with the founding of the House of Cognac. After over a century of experience producing cognac, Rémy Martin (Paul-Emile Rémy Martin) decided to take control of the business, as he began to sell the House’s Cognac under his family name. In the past, this cognac was sold in barrels, but Rémy Martin broke that tradition and decided to bottle the cognacs instead. A blend of his best 100% Grande Champagne cognacs began selling in 1874, in an ornate decanter. Louis XIII was a blend that was originally designated “Champagne Very Old” with unknown aging.
So, how is Louis XIII made? Grande Champagne cru of Cognac is still in charge of sourcing the eaux-de-vie for this particular cognac. This is a region in Cognac that is widely recognized for its limestone composition that is seen as an ideal for grapes employed when producing cognac. The aging process happens inside of 100 – 150 old French, thin-walled oak casks called tierçons, which were originally designed for maritime transport.
