This autumn, LOUIS XIII travels back through time with the launch of The Time Collection, a series of exclusive limited editions that pay tribute to the History of LOUIS XIII, an invitation to take a journey through many lands and times, a tale of legends, celebrities and statesmen. “The Origin – 1874” is the first of a thrilling series of key milestones in the brand’s History that will be released every 2 years.
In honour of the act of genius dreamed up by Paul-Émile Rémy Martin in 1874, LOUIS XIII presents a special edition that returns to the design of very first decanters used 142 years ago, from the moment Paul-Émile Rémy Martin purchased an ancient royal flask unearthed by a farmer in a field near Jarnac, the site of a historic battle.”
Details true to the originla LOUIS XIII decanters of that time: a mouth blown hollow stopper in its original shape; 13 teeth on each side instead of 10, the central fleur-de-lys decorated in champagne gold and metallic, light-gold colored coffret reminiscent of the wicker baskets that were originally used to transport LOUIS XIII.
The Origin – 1874 carries an RRP of £4,300 (US$5,355).
