Remy Martin, the company founder, established a cognac trading house in 1724 in southwestern France near Roulliac. One of the oldest Cognac house’s Remy Martin is the world’s largest brand of VSOP cognac, its largest markets being Asia and the Far East. Simply referred to as ‘Remy’ their range focuses on prestige products with the brand only starting at VSOP product. Some brands have long stories over how they develop logo’s or emblems; in 1773 Remy Martin added the famous centaur logo to their brand, the reason being that the business had passed to a third generation, Paul-Emile-Remy Martin, he was a Sagittarius and liked the zodiac sign. If only everything was so simple to explain.
Remy Martin crafts possibly the most infamous prestige drink in the world; Remy Martin Louis XIII. Each bottle contains a blend of cognacs between 40 to 100 years old all presented in a handmade Baccarat decorative glass decanter. Part of its notoriety is how it was featured in the 1980’s film Cocktail and was the payment wager for a bet between the two stars, in which it was described as the best of the best.
Is Remy Martin a champagne cognac? The labelling on Remy Martin VSOP creates a little confusion as it states Champagne Cognac. In order for any cognac to be classified as VSOP it must only be produced from grapes grown in the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne area of the Cognac region, this is the regulations for all brands and all VSOP Cognac’s. Remy Martin VSOP isn’t a blend with champagne or anything else, probably a marketing campaign and association of premium categories.
The company has remained family owned for almost 300 years, and in 1991 incorporated Cointreau and has since added brands like Mount Gay Rum, Bruichladdich Whisky and The Botanist Gin forming a global drinks company.

We treat all personalised bottles individually, taking our time and experience to set out your message to create the most impactful bottle decoration possible. This may include increase the size of some fonts within the message to pay particular focus on key lines or phrases, spacing message over extra lines and removing unnecessary punctuation.
If you can type it, we can engrave it! When using alternative languages it may be neccessary for us to alter the font to ensure all characters are supported, in these cases we use the closest style font to your original selection.
Unfortunatley we are unable to engrave emoji's or picture characters. Where these are added the character will be removed from your message.
We specially select the fonts we use. Once a bottle has been engraved the cut glass is then infilled with a special decorative silver paste. These fonts ensure we provide the optimum width and depth during the engraving process to creat maximum visibility once infilled.
The fonts we currently use are: Lucida Calligraphy, Lucida Handwriting, Verdana and Segoe Print.
