Rémy Martin XO and La Maison du Chocolat Limited Edition Gift Box October 2011 -The two famous French brands, Rémy Martin and La Maison Du Chocolat, have created a Limited Edition gift box called “Mysteries of the Angels”, available now exclusively in the UK at Harrods.
The red lacquered box contains a bottle of Rémy Martin XO Excellence Cognac, positioned side by side with a signature gift box of assorted chocolates from La Maison du Chocolat.
The “Mysteries of the Angels” gift box was created by Pierrette Trichet, Cellar Master of the House of Rémy Martin, and Gilles Marchal, Master Pastry Chef, Chocolatier and Creative Director at La Maison du Chocolat. United by their passion, long friendship, and by the pursuit of excellence, both have discovered many similarities in their respective arts over the years and decided to create the exclusive chocolates designed to be paired with Rémy Martin XO Excellence. Whether it be milk chocolate ganache, dark chocolate ganache from Venezuela or a praline delicacy, the flavours of cocoa and chocolate blend well with the warm and autumnal flavours of Rémy Martin XO Excellence, which can be served neat or on the rocks.
In order to complete the tasting experience of this gift box, a Tasting Guide is provided for both the Cognac and the Chocolate, personally penned by Pierrette Trichet and Gilles Marchal. The gift box will be available for £275; only 20 editions will be available at Harrods, so be quick if you would like to surprise your loved ones at Christmas!
