Rare Cognac launches in travel retail


Bacardi Global Travel Retail Division is launching Baron Otard’s rarest Cognac – Fortis et Fidelis – into select travel retail outlets worldwide (RRP US$4,500).

A crystal carafe has been designed for the Cognac by Christophe Pillet, whose signature fluid lines create the carafe’s distinctive shape, and handcrafted by Royale de Saint-Louis. One decanter takes three weeks and 15 crystal makers to make. The carafe is presented in a wooden case with a platinum lacquered finish. A booklet describes the creation of Fortis et Fidelis and an automatic drawer houses the certificate of authenticity and the decanter’s crystal closure.
