Following a tradition, Rémy Martin are launching a limited edition cognac specifically for the glamour that is the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival. This is the 11th consecutive year that the House of Rémy Martin has been selected as an Official Supplier to the Cannes Film Festival, which this year takes place from May 14-25 2014. The decanter for this special XO Excellence has a gold coating from its base to its stopper. The bottle, shaped like a clam shell, has a vintage film reel decorations on both the label and around the neck.
The decanter itself is presented in a black and gold box, and rests atop a red carpet stairway as a nod to the event it is commemorating.
The limited edition will be available at selected high-end retailers from May.
This is the first time that Remy have released an XO cognac in honour of the festival. Last year’s offering was a VSOP quality – see our previous article here, as was the 2012 edition.
