Brief History of Remy Martin

Remy Martin, is one of the world’s finest cognacs produced to best quality in one of the biggest cognac houses in France.

Founder Remy Martin, born in 1695 near Rouillac, a winegrower by trade created a trading house of cognac in 1724.

He built a successful business that after his death in 1773, his grandson, also named Rémy, continued in that line.

That success continued through the interwar period under André Renaud and the Second World War era under André Hériard-Dubreuil. The Remy Martin tradition has continued under current Cellar Master, Baptiste Loiseau.

The Remy Martin brand is renowned for it’s special logo – a centaur, a mythological creature whose star sign Sagittarius matched that of Martin.

The logo, introduced in 1841 by Paul-Emile-Rémy Martin is a distinctive centaur symbol. It is quite popular in China where it is called réntóumă (人头马 – man-headed horse).

How Remy Martin is made

What sets Remy Martin apart is its insistence on only using eaux-de-vie from grapes grown exclusively in the top two Cognac regions: Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne.

The brand specialises in making Cognac Fine Champagne, which is a cognac blend of eau-de-vie from the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne crus or growing areas.

While it is recognized as an appellation of origin related to the six crus of Cognac, Fine Champagne is not considered a cru itself.

Rémy Martin prides itself as making cognacs that have aged for between 10 and 37 years, while other brands have a standard of six years. It means every sip of this drink is the intake of an art created within the past 3 decades. Amazing right?

The striking aromatic flavour aids the ageing of these eaux-de-vie in Limousin oak barrels, during which period the alcohol evaporates and blackens the walls of the cellars.

The eau-de-vie slowly evolves, having a constant exchange between the wood and oxygen, pausing only for rest periods and barrels change.

By the time the final blending of the different barrels is done, fine cognac has been created. The style of the cognac depending on whether it was aged in young or old barrels, with a stronger or finer grain on the oak staves.

Remy Martin in Popular Culture

Remy Martin has a long history of partnering with artists to bring the essence of the brand to cognac lovers.

Hollywood actor and property developer, Jeremy Renner, Chinese actor and singer Huang Xiaoming, and Taiwanese mandopop singer Jolin Tsai are among the global celebrities they have worked with.

In Nigeria, the brand has worked with many successful celebrities to help its growth in the open market using the #OneLifeLiveThem Campaign.

The Campaign, which is a global strategy, emphasises on the brand’s belief that just like the perfect cognac is a blend of different eaux-de-vie, a fulfilled life is one of multiple paths, where all forms of creativity inherent in an individual comes to fruition.

Among these multifaceted men are rapper Falz, comedian Ali Baba, fashion blogger Noble Igwe, veteran DJ JImmy Jatt among others.
