The Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal
While all four are the stars of all festive events, it can be overwhelming if you are a novice to gifting, but fret not, for we are here to help. Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal is a gift for all occasions, not only because it commemorates the reward of excellence bestowed on Rémy Martin by King Louis XV in 1738, but also because it is an all-time favourite that ticks many people’s boxes – making it the best gift option for people who wish to start a home bar.
The oaky blend can be served neat, on ice or in a cocktail. The cognac reveals a rich aroma of fresh plums and figs, melding with smooth butterscotch and toasted bread, We recommend pairing it with dishes that are creamy and thick – an ultimate guest at the end of an expansive Chinese New Year meal.
A tip for people who enjoy cocktails, 1738 Accord Royal works wonders when mixed with citrus flavours. If you fancy something special for the occasion, here’s a recipe for the good ol’ Sidecar sprinkled with a hint of festive zest; but if you yearn for the classics, we prep you a cheat sheet for the Royal Tom Collins – a cocktail drink that withstands the test of time.
