When discussing luxury spirits, only a couple always comes to mind because the time, process and attention to detail it brings. Scotches and Cognacs are among the most expensive spirits in the world. Rare casks and blends usually are to blame for the crazy prices. Cognacs especially have an elegant, luxury tradition that started years ago in Cognac, France. One brand, Remy Martin has a rich history in this space and offer great gift ideas for the person who loved and enjoys a good cognac.

Growing up I listened to a lot of hip hop music and one artist in particular (Ma$e) used to always talk about Louis the XIII. Not having a clue what he meant except I knew he was talking about a drink but still I had no clue what drink and from whom. As I got older I realized that not only is Louis XIII is a form of cognac but that it was expensive and made for those with a RICH taste for cognac.
