The Drop From Louis XIII: A Spontaneous Experience of Louis XIII Cognac

Posted October 17, 2022 in Lifestyle by Ashleigh King

THE DROP stands at the crossroads of LOUIS XIII’s visionary brand statement: Think a Century Ahead. It is a breakthrough concept, designed for a new generation’s attitude to life and luxury. It’s small enough to be held tightly in the hands, and the first decanter of its kind to be consumed from the bottle, defining a new ritual for LOUIS XIII to be savored. Because, in essence, adding a piece of you to an experience is truly owning it. The most powerful experiences are the ones you set in motion and make your own.

THE DROP is a collection of five 1cl glass bottles, each representing a state of mind: Make it Bold, Make it Bright, Make it Smooth, Make it Loud and Make it Glow. Each colored cap embodies key elements of the LOUIS XIII universe: clay and sand colors for the chalk and clay soils of the Grand Champagne region, green for the grapevine and distillation process key to cognac making, red for the iconic LOUIS XIII color and gold as a nod to the neck of the brand’s classic decanters.

Over centuries, LOUIS XIII visionaries have become masters of time, seizing every fleeting second and shaping an ever-evolving, ever-enduring legacy. Since its origins in 1874, each generation of Cellar Master selects from our cellars the most precious eaux‐ de‐vie for LOUIS XIII. Today, Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau is setting aside our finest eaux‐de‐vie as a legacy to his successors for the coming century. LOUIS XIII Cognac is an exquisite blend sourced from Grande Champagne, the first cru of the Cognac region. The legendary decanters have been mouth-blown by some of the most skilled master craftsmen for generations. LOUIS XIII features exceptional aromas evoking myrrh, honey, dried roses, plum, honeysuckle, cigar box, leather, figs, and passion fruit.

The Drop can be purchased on the LOUIS XIII E-boutique at
