Cognac brand Rémy Martin has partnered with French metalsmith Steaven Richard on a limited edition XO bottle design.The collaboration highlights two companies “rooted in historical craftsmanship, refined luxury and celebrated expertise”. Both the House of Rémy Martin and Atelier Steaven Richard bear the label Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV), a mark of recognition by the French State for manufacturing excellence. Richard found inspiration from the vineyards in Cognac to create the design. The label features a textured pattern inspired by eaux-de-vie used to create the XO blend. “I took inspiration from Rémy Martin’s centuries-old connection with the soil – its love for nature – and something happened. Something approaching a revelation: from the verticality of the vines that climb to the sky, this piece reaches out towards the stars,” said Richard. The limited edition Rémy Martin XO is available in limited quantities through independent retailers in select markets and online at Reserve Bar for US$200.
