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.
Enjoy the pics I snapped.
