Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal is a premium cognac from the House of Rémy Martin. Its name pays tribute to the outstanding quality and craftsmanship of the House, which was recognized by King Louis XV of France in 1738.
Just 14 years after Rémy Martin started producing cognacs, the king endorsed the brand, granting it a royal recognition of excellence for the development of Rémy Martin vineyards, despite a nationwide ban on planting new vines.
This acknowledgement and the quality of its cognac has become the legacy of Rémy Martin.
Inspired by this milestone and the authentic methods of cognac making, in 1997 cellar master, Georges Clot, created the blend that is known today as Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal.
The blend was born by using traditional distillation of the lees in small copper stills, and selecting eaux-de-vie with a singular tasting profile and aged in French oak toasted barrels.
The 1738 blend is particularly oaky, with generous notes of plum and fig marmalade – resulting in an exceptionally mellow sensation of butterscotch, baked spices and hints of dark chocolate.
Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal is best enjoyed neat, on ice, or in premium classic cocktails. When cocktail making, this cognac’s strength lies with these that include citrus flavours, like the timeless Collins, as it reveals a layer of spice and nutty richness that takes this classic cocktail to a new dimension.
Shake the Rémy Martin 1738, lemon juice and sugar syrup with ice and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top this cocktail off with soda and garnish with a dehydrated lemon wheel.
