Black Pearl Magnum: A Rare Offering from Rémy Martin

The House of Rémy Martin is offering 300 connoisseurs the chance to purchase a limited-edition of Louis XIII?dubbed the Black Pearl Magnum ?a rare Grande Champagne cognac aged in a specially crafted singular oak barrel. The cognac is presented in a handcrafted Baccarat black crystal decanter as a tribute to the signature Louis XIII decanter, which was originally modeled on a metal flask found in the Cognac region of France in 1569. For those craving just a taste, the Plaza in New York City and the St. Regis in Washington, D.C., have purchased the first two bottles and will begin selling them by the glass later this month. A bottle of Louis XIII de Rémy Martin Grande Champagne cognac will sell for $32,000, with the Baccarat decanter. The St. Regis will offer glasses for $1,926?the cost pays homage to the year the St. Regis opened in Washington, D.C.  (
