SIZE MATTERS

10 Jul 2017 By

Mathusalem is a big word that just rolls off the tongue. So while it’s easy enough to say “Louis XIII Mathusalem” – is the price tag going to make you speechless?

The spirit is still the century-old, distilled eaux-de-vie, but the decanter is slightly upsized. The Louis XIII Mathusalem is a six-litre crystal behemoth that weighs in at 17kg (25kg if you add the coffret) and has an equally heavy price tag.

Say it with us: Standard, Magnum, Jeroboam, and Mathusalem. Yes, you’ve drank champagne out of a magnum bottle, vodka out of a jeroboam and maybe even a mathusalem, but you’ve never had cognac from a 6-litre decanter. (If you do, we’ll follow your Instagram forever!)

The precious crystal stopper alone weights 1kg.

It took a team of over 20 craftsmen from Baccarat to make this never-seen-before crystal decanter, the largest of its kind for a cognac – the iconic spikes itself require the deft skills of three artisans.

So this is something special and limited-edition, made only to order, and will set you back $123,000. It includes the 6-litre decanter and cognac, a pipette, eight chiming Louis XIII crystal glasses, a note from the master blender, and an invitation for four to Cognac to discover its terroir and history, plus a House Ambassaor to conduct a ritual tasting of their rare cognac.
