When a cognac specialist and three luxury maisons come together, magic happens
An ode to travel
Behold, the L'Odyssée D'Un Roi
Capturing the essence of time might be an implausible feat, but the amber-coloured Louis XIII cognac — in itself a blend of up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie, each ranging from 40 to a 100 years old — is proof that the impossible can indeed be achieved.
For such a storied pour, it seems only fitting that the brand's latest collaborationsees three other French luxury houses coming together to craft three masterpieces — L'Odyssée D'Un Roi — that'll go under the hammer later this year at Sotheby's in New York (September), Hong Kong (October), and London (November). Proceeds from the sale of each masterpiece will go towards the coffers of non-profit organisation The Film Foundation.
Inspired by the first shipments of Louis XIII in the 1870s, this magnum opus features a bespoke hand-stitched trunk by Hermès, a white gold pipette crafted by silversmith Puiforcat, along with crystal decanters and serving glasses forged by cristallerie Saint-Louis — all of which set the stage for the legendary Louis XIII cognac.
