LOUIS XIII releases RARE CASK 42.1, the latest limited-edition cognac in the Rare Cask Legacy, which brings the brand’s unique discoveries and developments to market. LOUIS XIII’s third Rare Cask limited edition will be available for purchase globally beginning June 2023.
In the Grande Champagne Cru of Cognac, France, fifth-generation Cellar Master, Baptiste Loiseau, found a single tiercon containing a particularly aromatic profile in the cellars of Domaine du Grollet, the home of the LOUIS XIII Legacy. Each of LOUIS XIII’s tiercons are created from French oak trees that take over 100 years to reach maturity, containing eaux-de-vie sourced from Grande Champagne’s terroir. The eaux-de-vie matures as the liquid deepens with intensity and mahogany hues. This aging process gives RARE CASK 42.1 its complexity. The exceptional cognac’s aromatic profile is a distinct expression of LOUIS XIII never encountered before with an unexpected 42.1% ABV.
LOUIS XIII will release 775 limited-edition numbered decanters each crafted from black Baccarat crystal. A jewel-like black finish is hand-made by 20 master craftsmen. Each decanter’s neck is adorned with gold and rhodium-finished details. The black crystal decanter is accompanied by a pair of glasses, each glass garnished with black quatrefoils and a serving pipette featuring a black medallion.
An exclusive event in Venice, Italy will celebrate the launch of RARE CASK 42.1 – with the theme ‘Care For Wonders’. Previous RARE CASK displays from LOUIS XIII have taken place within the Guilin Caves, China for RARE CASK 43.8, and in Udaipur, India for RARE CASK 42.6. The limited-edition release will be celebrated with exclusive tasting experiences in several cities around the world – including Paris, Zurich, London, Dubai, Beverly Hills, New York, Miami, Las Vegas, and Kuala Lumpur – as LOUIS XIII reveals this exceptional launch to clients on a global scale.
