It’s RobinLori #Flashback: Louis XIII Cognac Tasting at Hideoki Bespoke in Atlanta

Here’s another flashback  from 2015 which includes the most expensive cognac I’ve ever seen!  Have you ever heard of Louis XIII Cognac?  On October 14th I was assigned to cover a VIP tasting held at the fabulous Hideoki Bespoke menswear boutique and I was totally blown away!

Dedrick Thomas (CEO of Hideoki Besopke) and Victor Blanquart (LOUIS XIII Ambassador) hosted an exquisite tasting experience of the “one century in a glass” cognac.  This one of a kind masterpiece literally takes 100 years to produce and with it’s specially crafted decanter made with crystal… it’s valued at something like $25,000. Whew… now that’s what I call a special invite 🙂

The men’s boutique with clients such as Steve Harvey was equally impressive with fine garments, bold & rich patterns and colors.  Visitors are required to make an appointment so my little journey was like trying to find a secret hide away.  LOL!  But I finally found the location and truly enjoyed the tasting experience through my lens.  I was even offered a glass (worth at least $1200) for the toast but I wouldn’t dare!  I certainly appreciated the gesture but sometimes you have to know when “NOT” to accept an offer while working.
