Double Happiness, On the Rocks: L’Essence de Courvoisier Xi


Double Happiness On The Rocks  1

We haven’t got past the hurdle of Christmas, but it’s never too early when it comes to limited edition spirits. Presenting the artfully packaged L’Essence de Courvoisier Xi, bottled to fete the looming Lunar New Year. The most prominent design detail on the tear-drop shaped Xi decanter is the Chinese symbol for “double happiness”, etched into the bottle in gold and befitting the celebratory toast sure to follow.

Billed as the “perfect blend created following years of exploration”, L’Essence de Courvoisier is widely regarded as the jewel of Courvoisier’s line of luxury cognacs. Consisting of over 100 precious ‘eaux-de-vie’ from the two most exclusive crus in the Cognac region, Grande Champagne and Borderies, the L’Essence de Courvoisier is a combination of rare blends housed in the cellars dating back to the early 20th century.

The individually numbered L’Essence de Courvoisier Xi collectible has a world-wide limited run of just 1,000, 30 of which will be available in Singapore from January 2013. They cost a pretty penny, too: get yours at S$5,588 per pop.
