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 generations to come. And 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.

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 and his younger daughter Genevieve 49 percent of the company. Anne-Marie married André Hériard Dubreuil (who then ran Rémy Martin) and Genevieve married Max Cointreau, of the popular French liquor company. This was to be the beginning of the marriage 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 develpment to international acclaim. Its very own distribution network is firmly in place since 2009 (after having been associated with distributors such as Maxxium, Vin & Sprit 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.

Pierette Richet is Rémy Martin’s cellar master, one of the few women in this industry. She’s only the forth cellar master in 100 years, that is how much the tradition of the cognac house has been kept alive through the generations. 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 prices of Rémy Martin cognac bottles differ: The offer goes from young, cheaper cognac to very, very old cognac - at its price. So let's have a look at some Rémy Martin prices. The Rémy Martin VSOP 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.

News, Products, Anecdotes and Labels

In 2010, Rémy Martin introduced its clear spirit, Rémy Martin V, which can be purchased in select boutiques and shops. Instead of ageing 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.

Rémy also boast 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.

This limited edition Cognac is presented in its famous crystal decanter with fleur de lys shaped stopper within a delightful presentation case. But what makes Legacy so special is that the decanter sports autographs of four of the five above-mentioned cellar masters: Baptiste Loiseau, Pierrette Trichet, Andre Giraud, and Georges Clot.

Only 500 of this delightful limited edition have been produced, truly making it one for the collectors. Read more about this item in our blog article about Louis XIII Legacy

My bottle has been in my possession for 15 years. Early 1960's. Second edition of "âge inconnu" I have a bottle of Louis XIII, unopened and with stopper for sale. They are etched with the number 164. My research indicates that this bottle is from the late 50's to the the early 60's. No box. I am located in South Carolina USA Photos available in "my bottle". Accepting offers.

Anybody is interested in centaure cristal decanter of 1982 with cert no?

After the China scandal, I'm sad to say I could clearly smell the plastic in Remy Martin's 1738. Believe me, I fought it...did not want to acknowledge it. But it reminds me of blowing up an old style air mattress or a kid's toy "floating" device at the pool. I feel like I've known something was "harsh tasting" in it for a while...but it didn't come together for me until the China situation. Sad. I live in the USA and really wanted "the real pure thing"...Hennessy Privilege is a little better...but I'm concerned about it as well. MY QUESTION IS...HOW CAN WE FIND OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS SITUATION. I WANT TO KEEP BUYING COGNAC...BUT I JUST NOW POURED OUT 2/3 BOTTLE OF 1738. THAT HURT ME...BUT I CAN'T DRINK DISSOLVED PLASTIC. PUBLISH THE TRUTH ON THIS...AND YOU WILL SAVE THE FRENCH SPIRITS INDUSTRY. Tomorrow...03/25/13...I plan to buy a local brandy that I have more confidence in. Help!!!

Martina: "How was the the slogan for advertising Remy Martin in the Seventies and Eighties. I am translator translating a novel. The meaning of the sentence in English is "When opening a bottle of Remy Martin the good things will come of its own..." Remy Martin Louis XIII is the third biggest rip-off within the cognac industry. imagine how much it costs to give the world the above message! Who is paying for the worldwide extensive marketing? You are! Is it improving the quality of the cognac? No. A costly bottle just means less money left for the quality inside the bottle. At 1/10 the price you can buy much better cognac. I recommend: Leopold Gourmel 15 carats, Delamain XO, Jean Fillioux Tres Vieux. Skip Louis XIII, buy all three bottles, invite your friend to a Michelin Restaurant and save money!

Does anyone have Remy Martin XO Premier Cru 50ml (mini) for sale? Had been looking for it for a while. Email me at Thanks

Martina 2012-06-29

Dear Sophie and Max, may I asked you an question? How was the the slogan for advertising Remy Martin in the Seventies and Eighties. I am translator translating a novel. The meaning of the sentence in English is "When opening a bottle of Remy Martin the good things will come of its own" - I need this slogan in German language, I got it only in Chinese that is the novels language. Do you know this slogan or could you give me a contact where I can ask? Thank you so much!

Hi, I've received a bottle of Remy Martin XO as a wedding gift. I am not a big drinker especially with high quality drinks like this. I have never had this drink before so i don't know how to drink it. Like i said i am not a big drinker so should i mix it with something or drink it straight? I am a little worried to drink it straight because i may not like it straight up.

Jimmy nguyen 2012-06-18

Leo 2012-04-17

you should drink it in room temperature and savor the flavor as the cognac envelopes your mouth, throat and stomach

graciela 2012-03-14

I wonder if you should drink this cognac at room temperature or cold like champagne, because I bought a bottle of cognac and I have not touched it yet.
