Celebrating three centuries of exceptional and refined cognac at Remy Martin.

In 1724, the young French winemaker Rémy Martin first began to sell cognac under his own name. Three hundred years later, Rémy Martin has become the foremost brand of cognac, and its prestigious products are famous the world over, from their Fine Champagne Rémy Martin XO to the emblematic Louis XIII.

To celebrate the brand’s tercentenary, this book invites readers to step inside the historic wineries, to explore the vineyards of the Cognac region, and to dive into the fascinating story of Rémy Martin.

Previously unpublished archival documents are combined with a contemporary perspective provided through newly commissioned images by Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert. The beautifully produced volume, which includes five color printing throughout, is completed by a cognac pairing guide and cocktail recipes. This work offers an exceptional occasion to discover the history, savoir faire, and traditions of one of the greatest spirit brands in the world.
