Who’s Got The Best Liquor In Cannes?


Remy-Martin-Excellence-Cannes-2014-600x427

An official supplier of the Cannes Film Festival, Rémy Martin is pulling out all the stops for the event this year. For the first time, Rémy Martin is launching a special edition of its XO Excellence cognac honoring the cinematic arts.  One of Remy Martin‘s most prestigious cognacs, XO Excellence is an aromatic combination of floral, fruit and spice notes.  Just as sumptuous as the cognac itself, the decanter for this special edition has a gold coating from its base to its stopper. And, in homage to the Cannes Film Festival, the cognac maker has decorated the neck and label with a subtle black and gold motif echoing a strip of film.  The special edition comes in a gold and black gift box in which the decanter sits atop a red carpet pedestal.  Rémy Martin, one of the world’s most respected cognac brands, transforms grapes from the Grande and Fine Champagne zones into delicate spirits that are prized by aficionados around the world, and particularly in China.

Le Sphinx Tattoos 25 Limited Edition J&B Whiskey Bottles


sphinx-JB-whiskey-bottles-designboom01

Sébastien Mathieu, owner of Le Sphinx a private tattoo room in paris has literally tattooed onto 25 bottles for whiskey brand, J&B. Presented in rough black wooden box, the individually designed bottles each took around 20 hours to be completed. The containers were fully covered with a latex material, just like the one used when tattooing – slim enough to respect the outline’s shape and strong enough to be hit multiple times by the sharp needles. A human skin color was also applied to help strengthen the overall perception of the design.
