Check That Old Decanter of LOUIS XIII...And You May Just Win a Trip to the Remy Martin Estate.

You may want to take a second, much closer look at the dusty, old yet elegant decanter of cognac your grandfather or father cherished so proudly all these years. If it turns out to be the oldest LOUIS XIII decanter, you may just win a trip to the Remy Martin Estate in France. Now how cool is that?

In celebration of its 140th Anniversary, LOUIS XIII Cognac launches its "Quest for a Legend" promotion, a global search for the oldest decanter in the world. The promotion kicks off in the emerging Asian market, starting with Singapore, Malaysia, India, and the Philippines before a roll out in other markets.

Created in Cognac, France, way back in 1874, LOUIS XIII was destined to be the iconic King of Cognac, the preferred choice of royal courts from the past to today's captains of industry. Its complex blend of 1,200 eaux-de-vie and nearly a century of masterful craftsmanship for each batch underscores the passion and commitment of the House of Remy Martin. Each decanter is a century in a bottle, a culmination of three generations of cellar masters for a select few. The decanter itself is a work of art, made from the finest and noble crystal, adorned with 24-carat gold and individually numbered. For the connoisseur, a decanter this precious was something to be cherished and kept, and can be passed on to the next generation (for more  on LOUIS XIII's Quest for a Legend, check out my post on my other blog here at  

Records indicate that cases of LOUIS XIII were shipped to Singapore, Calcutta, and Penang in 1881, followed by Manila in 1883. Searching for the oldest LOUIS XIII decanter may be a lot closer to home than you think...
