THE DECANTER

LOUIS XIII Cognac Decanter

Time for LOUIS XIII is ever measured on the grandest scale.


The fabulous crystal decanter that bears the name today owes its inspiration to a humble flask that was lost on a French battlefield more than four centuries ago. Today, crystal takes the place of glass, and that ancient metal form lives on in the dazzling hand-crafted execution that the world knows today.


Crystal is a symbol of exception and enduring perfection. Most of all, it is the perfect echo of the vision that Paul-Émile Rémy Martin first declared for the Cognac that would become LOUIS XIII – to be an international icon of luxury and a potent symbol of the French art de vivre. The Louis XIII decanter is every inch the expression of that ambition.

No two LOUIS XIII decanters are ever exactly the same. A genuine work of art in crystal, each piece is executed in the manner of an Haute Couture creation, individually numbered and hand-blown.


Each decanter requires the perfect synchronization of 11 craftsmen who first blow the crystal, place by hand characteristics ornaments, and decorate the neck with 20-carat gold in a balletic performance that is timed to complete each operation while the glass remains at the perfect temperature.
