Napoleon’s personal signet rings were given to remarkable army commanders who risked their lives for the nation of France. Inspired by these exclusive and noble rings, leading French crystal house, Baccarat has created a crystal decanter for ” L’Essence de Courvoisier”, one of the finest cognacs that money can buy. More than 100 rare ‘eaux de vie’ are brought together to make up this rare cognac. Some of it even comes from the beginning of the 20th century!
A mouthful of this rare cognac would leave you with the fragrances of sandalwood, cigar leaves, toffee, marzipan, honey, mountain flowers and delicate spices lingering in your mouth. L’Essence de Courvoisier brings with it notes of liquorice, dried plum and apricot and leaves you begging for more. A single bottle costs $3,000 at Harrods which is a tidy sum. You could also try the more expensive Frapin Cuvee 1888 Rabelais Cognac about which we wrote earlier.
