The design of the LOUIS XIII COGNAC decanter is a legend in itself. In 1850, Paul-Émile Rémy Martin acquired a metal flask that had been left on the battlefield of Jarnac fought in 1569. The remarkable form of this ancient relic inspired him to create a new decanter to house his oldest and most precious eaux-de-vie: a visionary idea that gave birth to LOUIS XIII in 1874.

Today, hand-crafted in pure crystal by master crystal makers at the most prestigious french cristalleries, the iconic LOUIS XIII decanter is world-renowned. A dazzling work of art with fine dentelle spikes, an elegant neck ringed in gold and crowned of fleurs-de-lys, the symbol of French royalty, it takes the unique savoir-faire of 9 masters craftsmen to hand-blow, hand-cut and hand-decorate each numbered piece.

An icon of luxury and the French art-de-vivre sought after by collectors across the globe, each LOUIS XIII decanter is a sumptuous rendition of the original bottle - and no two are the same. From the exquisite MINATURE to the magnificent JEROBOAM to the monumental MATHUSALEM; from the precious iridescence of the BLACK PEARL to each spectacular new edition in the TIME collection, each one is a priceless masterpiece to treasure forever.
