Interesting facts you probably didn’t know about Rémy Martin

1. Is Remy Martin champagne? No - the growth area of Cognacs come from the Fine Champagne, which uses eaux-de-vie from both the Grande and Petite Champagne crus. They are terroirs used for Cognac production only, not champagne - despite the name.

2. Remy Martin is the only Cognac house founded by a winemaker in 1724.

Remy Martin Timeline History

3. Rémy Martin is now part of the Rémy Cointreau group, a powerful company with various luxury products in their range and an international distribution network.

4. Pierette Richet is Rémy Martin’s cellar master, one of the few women in this industry. She’s only the fourth cellar master in 100 years, that is how much the tradition of the house of Rémy Martin has been kept alive through the generations.

5. Like in any grand family tradition there was a feud… André Renaud senior had written in his will that his older daughter Anne-Marie would inherit 51 percent of the company, and his younger daughter Genevieve 49 percent. Anne-Marie married André Hériard Dubreuil (who then ran Rémy Martin) and Genevieve married Max Cointreau, of the popular French liquor company.

6. Rémy Martin has developed a clear spirit, the Rémy Martin V. Instead of aging in oak barrels, the eau-de-vie goes through an ice-cold filtration process. It has hints of pear and fresh mint and in fact, tastes more like vodka than Cognac.

7. Remy Martin VSOP is the first Fine Champagne VSOP ever created.

8. The famous Louis XIII Cognac is originally made with precious Baccarat crystal.

History of Rémy Martin

Originally a winegrower, Rémy Martin founded the company in 1724. He implanted a strong family tradition; the business continued to be run by family members throughout the generations to come.

Remy Martin History Buildings

All of them continued Rémy Martin’s passion for Cognac and had a strong commitment to quality. By purchasing additional neighboring parcels of land in the excellent winegrowing area just outside of the town of Cognac in 1774, the family extended their activities to become one of the prime Cognac producers in the region.
The essence of this success lies in the creation of Rémy Martin’s Louis XIII Cognac, blended and registered by Paul Emile Rémy Martin in 1874 with the subheading “Tres Grande Champagne”.
The family tradition sadly came to an end in the early 1900s due to financial problems relating to the business. André Renaud from Gensac-la-Pallue saved the company by bringing in external funds and running it until his death in 1965.
His son-in-law, André Hériard Dubreuil took over after his death, successively turning the company into an international player, for instance by introducing “Rémy Associés”, a worldwide distribution network for alcoholic beverages, including its own products as well as other selected labels of liquor, wine, and spirits.
The marriage between Genevieve Martin and Max Cointreau was said to be the beginning of the collaboration between Rémy Martin and Cointreau until they finally merged in 1990 as Rémy Cointreau.
Needless to say, there were numerous feuds involved in this complex family undertaking, but the companies came out stronger and extremely successful on the other end, even though the financial crisis of the early nineties slowed down its rocketing start.

Rémy Martin Today

Today, the merging of Rémy Martin with Cointreau in 1990 can only be regarded as an important development in the company’s development to international acclaim. Its very own distribution network is firmly in place since 2009 (after having been associated with distributors such as Maxxium, Vin & Spirit, and Beam Global Brands).

Rémy Cointreau owns additional brands Picon, an orange-based aperitif, the rums of Saint James de Martinique and Mount Gay, the Scotch Whiskey Glenturret, the fruit flavored liqueurs Péché Mignon and Passoa, the champagne labels Krug, Heidsieck and Piper Heidsieck and others.

Vincent Gere is the director of the cognac house and the estate. The visitor numbers reach 200.000 each year, among them many American tourists. 

Rémy Martin Prices

The price of Rémy Martin bottles differs: The offer goes from young, cheaper Cognac to very, very old bottles - at its price.

To buy Rémy Martin VSOP, the price is at about € 40, the XO Excellence price is  € 160 and how much is the price of Rémy Martin Louis XIII? Around € 1800. The bottle of Remy Martin VS can be purchased for a price of around € 25 to € 30.

Latest Campaigns

They created a Cannes Film Festival Limited Edition of the Remy Martin XO in 2018 to celebrate the festival. It was created with the famous Remy centaur adorned in golden and black dots on the box.

Remy Martin has gained quite a reputation for itself in the world of hip hop and rap music. Musician and producer Pharrell Williams collaborated with the brand to create a ‘100 Years’ edition Cognac - they announced that Pharrell has locked away his latest song in a vault, to be revealed in the year 2117.

If that’s not interesting enough - Remy Martin created the biggest bottle of Cognac ever in collaboration with Salmanazar; the prestigious Louis XIII Cognac. 

Labels and Other Products

Rémy also boasts a range of other products, for instance, the classic Pineau des Charentes or Remy Red, a touch of cognac infused with a mix of red berries, peaches and apricots.

In 2017, Louis XIII releases Remy Martin Louis XIII Legacy Cognac combining the legend of XIII with the ‘legacy’ of the house of Remy Martin. Everything to do with any Cognac created is down to the skill of the cellar master. And over the centuries, only five super-talented people have ever held this illustrious position at Remy Martin.
