CHRISTMAS GIFTS: Rémy Martin Cognac Gift Sets
Never underestimate the power of the humble tumbler. Good spirits deserve supreme glassware and I’ve been known to let out a yelp of pain when a beautifully crafted blended malt whisky or fine aged cognac is poured thoughtlessly into a smeared high ball glass. Ok, I’m being rather melodramatic, but the principle remains. So if you are buying a loved one a bottle of their favourite tipple this Christmas, then a gift set with matching glasses is well worth the extra few pounds.
Rémy Martin, curators of some of the finest cognac money can buy; have brought out 2 cognac and glassware gift sets this Christmas featuring Rémy Coeur de Cognac & my personal favourite, Rémy Martin VSOP. Coeur de Cognac is very much a sipping neat kind of drink, perfect for the cognac purist. VSOP is equally at home sipped neat, however as I found out at the Rémy London Cocktail Week Masterclass, it’s versatile enough to make mixed drinks and cocktails alike.
Rémy VSOP and Coeur de Cognac gift sets are available from Selfridges, Specialty Drinks and Harvey Nichols, RRP from £34.99
