L’Essence de Courvoisier

L’Essence de Courvoisier is the newest addition to the collection and the jewel of our permanent higher styles.

Consisting of over 100 eaux-de-vie from the most exclusive crus in the Cognac region, L’Essence contains rare liquids that signify key periods of innovation for us, including in both distillation and the selection of wood for ageing.

Each decanter is created by the highly skilled craftsmen at Baccarat and features a crystal decanter suspended in a timeless and elegant frame.

The crystal stopper on the decanter is inspired by the legend of Napoleon’s ten signet rings, which he bestowed upon favoured military commanders who had committed brave and noble acts.

L’Essence de Courvoisier is the lasting legacy of Courvoisier’s fifth Master Blender, Jean-Marc Olivier, and retails at $3,000.
