Kind Spirit: Louis XIII

New at the Wingtip club: One well-appointed bottle of Remy Martin’s Louis XIII Cognac. There are 1200 individual brandies, ranging from 40-100 years, blended into this bottle. The famous decanter developed out of a bottle left on the battlefield of Jarnac (1569) and unearthed by Emile Rémy Martin in the mid-19th century. It is now created from crystal by Baccarat (keep an eye out for Wingtip retail offerings from them in the near future).
