About LOUIS XIII:
Created in 1874, LOUIS XIII is the result of the life achievement of Cellar Masters, and one of the world’s most prestigious cognac brands. It is made from a blend of the oldest and most precious eaux-de-vie, using grapes grown in Grande Champagne, encased in a unique decanter. Time is at the heart of LOUIS XIII. It is our raw material, and each decanter represents the life achievement of generations of Cellar Masters, who rely on the mastery of their predecessors and successors to preserve the taste of LOUIS XIII throughout time.
