The LOUIS XIII Odyssey inspires record-breaking auction sales at Sotheby’s
New York, Hong Kong, London – Inspired by the LOUIS XIII odyssey across time and the globe, three LOUIS XIII L'ODYSSÉE D'UN ROI limited editions have garnered record-breaking sales for cognacs. Created with three of the most prestigious French luxury houses – Hermès, Puiforcat and Saint-Louis – these unique masterpieces, each depicting a different regional odyssey, hold a unique blend in a crystal magnum and were auctioned by Sotheby's in Hong Kong, New York and London respectively. Emotions ran high as collectors outbid each other for the ultra-rare editions, topping records for the sale of a LOUIS XIII decanter at each successive auction. In all a record $558,000 was raised, which LOUIS XIII has donated to the Film Foundation, devoted to restoring and preserving cinematic heritage, founded by Martin Scorsese.
