I had the extreme honour of joining Remy Martin for the final weekend of the 70th International Film Festival in Cannes this week, it is the biggest film event of the year - covered by over 1,500 media and news outlets - the festival is attended by all the biggest movie stars, directors and celebrities ever since it's inception in 1946.
In celebration of the 70th Anniversary as well as being the official sponsor of the festival, Remy Martin has created the exclusive limited edition bottle XO Cannes 2017 - this edition is just what the festival is about - the glamour, mystery and the strong ties between the Maison Remy Martin and cinematic arts. The new XO Decanter wraps its new design with a glossy black coating inspired by film reels and sits on a throne at top of the stairs just like the famous Palme d'Or award - this exquisite icon is must-have in any gentleman's bar.
We celebrated with an exciting weekend filled with cognac tasting, beautiful scenic lunches and dinners, a first ever Cannes Red Carpet experience as well as a private tour of Palais des Festivals - it really doesn't get more special than this.
Having always been a cognac fan and French for that matter, Remy Martin has always been one of my absolute favourite brands - not just for the taste but for it's savoir-faire and joie de vivre - and that is makes all the difference - it is rooted in exception.
