Rémy Martin XO Excellence, the French house’s Extra Old fine champagne cognac and Thomas Lyte, the English luxury brand renowned for their leather goods and silver, have collaborated to create a limited edition gift set.
The Rémy Martin XO and Thomas Lyte gift set, which is presented in a bespoke plum leather box, contains a silver hipflask enclosed in a leather cover embossed with the Rémy Martin XO centaur motif, alongside a 70cl decanter of Rémy Martin XO Excellence. Hip flasks first appeared in the 18th century and today are often used as a gift for special occasions and seen as collector’s items, making them the perfect gift for father’s day.
Both brands are renowned for their craftsmanship and exceptional product quality. Rémy Martin XO Excellence is the reference by which all other XO fine champagne cognacs are judged: it is blended from 350 eaux-de-vie sourced from the heart of Cognac (85% Grande Champagne, 15% Petite Champagne) that have been aged between 10-37 years, compared to the standard XO ageing of 6 years. Thomas Lyte is an English luxury brand synonymous with great English design. Dedicated to the finest quality and workmanship in silver and leather, the brand uses only the finest materials and innovative production techniques to create beautiful, contemporary designs. Thomas Lyte’s distinctive leather bags, playful leather purses, desirable leather wallets and classic cufflinks are testament to the brand’s fusion of traditional values with contemporary design.
Whether it be using the finest grapes or materials, applying the traditional blending process or innovative technologies: Rémy Martin XO and Thomas Lyte share a passion for handcrafting products of highest standards for the enjoyment of their loyal customers.
The gift set, limited to only 30 pieces, will be available in May 2012 at the Thomas Lyte boutique in Burlington Arcades, London, for £295.00 each.
