A Luxurious LOUIS XIII Cognac Pop-Up Boutique Launches at Harrods

Calling all cognac connoisseurs: explore a lavish new LOUIS XIII pop-up boutique and immersive window display at Harrods in Knightsbridge

Each scintilating crystal decanter of LOUIS XIII cognac takes four generations more than 100 years to create. Just think about that for a second; one hundred years. Thankfully, you don’t need to wait that long if you’d like to experience the elusive amber ambrosia. The venerable French cognac house is taking over an interior boutique in Harrods until the end of April, in addition to five, resplendent window displays. 

For the first time in the UK, the entire LOUIS XIII range is available to purchase in a dedicated boutique, from the dainty 5cl Miniature, which makes for a wonderful wedding gift, to the colossal 6L Le Mathusalem, the largest crystal decanter for cognac ever made. 

Each ornate, distinctive decanter is hand-blown in crystal for a sleek, opulent bottle, which twinkles with the history of France

There is also a limited-edition collector’s bottle, The Origin – 1874, which is part of the Time Collection that honours key milestone in the brand’s history. The opulent and beguiling bottle pays tribute to the year that Paul-Émile Rémy Martin purchased an ancient royal flask, which would become the design for an early and iconic decanter. It is housed in a sleek metal case with a distinctive woven texture, reinterpreting the wicker baskets originally used to deliver LOUIS XIII. 

The innovative window displays celebrate life’s ‘Memorable Moments’, from the Hollywood red carpet to an intimate wedding day, brought to life by an immersive 3D-mapping technique. 

Founded in 1724, Louis XIII cognac is produced by the House of Rémy Martin and is considered the highest quality cognac in the world. Each ornate, distinctive decanter is hand-blown in crystal for an elegant, opulent bottle, which twinkles with the history of France. 

Step inside the luxurious new Louis XIII pop-up via the video above. The only way to truly experience the sleek space however is by visiting, so we encourage you to hotfoot it down to Harrods and join the cognac club post-haste.

Prices start from £575 for the 5cl Miniature; The LOUIS XIII boutique is open until 25 April 2017; 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7XL, www.harrods.com
