Two for Cebu

C‘EST CEBU - Honey Jarque Loop (The Philippine Star) - September 14, 2019 - 12:00am

The House of Rémy Martin is known for the high quality of its cognacs that are made from grapes grown in the  vineyards of Grand and Petite Champagne in France.

In Cebu, Joey Pineda, commercial manager of Remy Cointreau International, invited a small group of individuals at the Radisson Blu Hotel,  to savor and enjoy fine wines and crafted spirits in particular Remy Martin XO. Dubbed as Opulence Revealed, the experience allowed guests to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the finer points of Rémy Martin XO Cognac .

Guests  were led to a beautiful table spread on which all the various elements were displayed.  The golden spirit lay alongside fragrant fruits such as grape and pear, iris and jasmine flowers, walnuts and hazelnuts, dried apricots and figs, and spices like cinnamon, chocolates, cheeses, dried saffron, and stem ginger — highlighting the exquisite and sophisticated flavors of the XO.

More than just revealing flavors and aromas, the Opulence Revealed also unraveled the brand’s guiding principles and why Remy Martin is simply a cut above the rest among other cognac houses.
