Remy Cointreau is perhaps one of the oldest wines and spirits businesses dating back to 1724. Today, Remy Cointreau’s portfolio contains a number of global brands and has acquired a number of distilleries throughout the years. Remy Cointreau is currently made up of 9 brands united with 2 divisions: The House of Remy Martin, which offer a great cognacs range of Remy Martin and Louis XIII, and its Liqueurs and Spirits section which include Cointreau, Metaxa, Mount Gay Rum, Bruichladdich, St Remy, Passoa and Izarra.
However, it is surprising to know that even the wines and spirits industry has to compete and constantly deliver innovative products in order to continue attracting its audience. For 2014/15, The House of Remy Martin is seemingly confident with its approach for the financial year as they are “boosted by a new packaging facility and a new spirits cellar both of which were built while respecting the traditions and expertise of a House dating back almost 300 years, yet are modern. Beyond pricing, the ultra-premium strategy is based on a pursuit of excellence allied to renewed creativity, a source of modernity, innovations in the products and in the fields of digital and customer relations.”

Fortunately, The House of Remy Martin offers an exhaustive collection of visits, tours and private eventsforenthusiasts and amateurs.
