If you’re looking for new ways to spend your bonus, The Whisky Distillery has just made it easier for you to do so at its flagship store on the ground floor of One Raffles Place. And what’s possibly more tempting than the retailer’s usual offerings of fine whiskies is a space dedicated entirely to the king of cognacs, Louis XIII.
Aged between 40 and 100 years, Remy Martin’s top product is made using only grapes from the most exclusive region in Cognac – Grande Champagne – to create its eaux de vie (French for “water of life”). After careful ageing and blending, the finished liquid is stored in a Baccarat crystal 01The Louis XIII shop-in- shop concept. 02 The Whisky Distillery store at One Raffles Place. 02 decanter. It’s best served and enjoyed in matching crystal glasses that sound like angels crying when clinked together.
At this permanent shop-in-shop concept – Louis XIII’s first in South-east Asia – every single edition in the Iconic Collection, from the Miniature (5cl) to the Louis XIII Le Mathusalem in a monumental 6-litre crystal decanter, will be available for purchase. This makes it the widest range of Louis XIII products offered in the region’s domestic market. Fun fact: records document Louis XIII decanters being shipped to Singapore as early as 1881.
And, while limited editions like the Rare Cask and Black Pearl will remain exclusive to Louis XIII’s private client channels, the shop has plans to host previews for upcoming limited editions. The standard stuff will also still be available at The Whisky Distillery’s 11 other outlets across Singapore.
