Nothing illustrates Remy’s commitment to craftsmanship more than their latest collaboration with metalwork artist Steaven Richard to create the Rémy Martin XO X Steaven Richard Limited Edition Cognac. This special partnership combines generations of savoir-faire with an innovative and cutting edge team. The XO Cognac is made up of over 400 eaux-de-vie from the Petite and Grande Champagnes, also known as the Fine Champagne. As an XO, some of the eaux-de-vie have been aged for more than 37 years.
Both Remy Martin and the Atelier Steaven Richard are recognized by the French State, with an Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label. This indicates their respective excellence in manufacturing and artisanal craft.
The label of the Remy Martin Steaven Richard XO Cognac itself was the beginning of a beautiful relationship between the two, as Steaven Richard redesigned the centaur emblem of Remy Martin. Using metalwork techniques, he recreated a structure of vertical lines of the House’s vines. He then went on to redesign the iconic XO decanter, and the entire gift set.
Steaven Richard has always relied on traditional technique, but instead pioneering his approach by reinventing metalwork. His signature technique is that of artistic lamination and is inspired by his love for nature and the earth. He is constantly pushing boundaries to reach new aesthetic heights and has been pioneering his craft for over ten years. His liaison with Remy Martin marks the height of combining both new and old methods.
