While a life is counted in years, Louis XIII is enjoyted over centuries. 150 years went by between the foundation of the House of Rémy Martin in 1724 and the birth of LOUIS XIII. From 1821, III blended the first reserves of the old eaux-de-vie to prepare for the future. His son, Paul Emile Remy Martin, inherited this know-how and this passion. As the culminating point of a life dedicated to cognac, he created LOUIS XIII and officially regiseterd the brand name in 1874.

As the result of four generation of Cellar Masters, Louis XIII is a unique blend of 1,200 eaux-de-vie, all from Grande Champagne, and aged in tiercons, century-old casks made from Limousin oak.

It’s name pays homage to the King of France, during whose reign the Rémy Martin Family settled in the Cognac Region. Its iconic decanter is a replica of a metal flask found on the battlefield of Jarnac. Some more reasons to believe that Louis XIII is the King of Cognac.
