Remy Martin V: Launch of the New Clear Spirit Brandy

Rémy Martin released their new white bottle Remy V. The bottle is a clear spirit – not a Cognac.

Remy Martin V is available since September 2010: V was kicked off in nightclubs and selected premium liquor stores in Atlanta and the Bay Area.

A wider roll-out was supposed to happen in 2011, but still is not available in many countries or states. Remy Martin clearly drives an exclusive distribution strategy with this bottle and seems still to be in “testing mode”.

This “V” bottle is a 100% distilled grapes spirit, and at 40% ABV. So what is Rémy’s V if it’s not a Cognac? Let’s think about it: a Cognac needs to be aged at least for 2 1/2 years in oak barrels – otherwise it can’t qualify as Cognac. Learn more about the cognac ageing procedure.

It’s not a Cognac

This matter, this product could lead to cognac-political problems, and it already did. Have a look at the Rémy Martin brand page with all products, history and background information.

The Remy Martin V 700ml bottle is classic, there is also a 200ml flask.


Normally the eaux-de-vie, after distilling, is a pure, clear spirit: The very early product, the non-matured, raw spirit. Is this Remy Martin V? A blend of different eaux-de-vie, unstocked and unaged? For mixing in cocktails? Well, it would make sense.. also from a financial point of view.

As Remy Martin V is not aged in barrels (that’s the more or less final step in Cognac making), and therefore not a Cognac, the spirit gets pumped through a -10 C ice cold filtration process. This apparently is where the spirit gets its “brilliant, transparent color”. This is why many people also call the bottle Rémy Martin White.

Something else we realized: The V (pronounced Vee) is supposed to be a reference to the French word “Vie”, and that means “life”. Eaux-de-vie! It all makes sense now.

Raw eaux-de-vie supposed to be consumed ice cold

It’s not a Cognac but a brandy. Without a doubt, this spirit will be quite rough so you have to drink it in cocktails and ice cold. Read more about the cognac distilling process.

The bottle is designed in a white, stylish look, with slight red elements here and there. Looks luxurious.

Below you see a board published by Rémy: Signature Cocktails by mixologist Charles Hardwick, made with V: V Cran, The Victor, The Verve, Femme Fatale … and The Belmondo! Jean-Paul Belmondo?

Very smart move by Rémy Martin: A cocktail product, with lower production costs than a Cognac. We think this is a good launch idea.. Questions remain: Where can I buy Remy Martin V and how much does the white Remy cost? Also, when does it come out in Europe and will it be the same price?

Almost one year after launch, we still do not know when it will be available in all US states, when Remy V comes to Europe, or if it comes to Europe.

    I’m from Indianapolis, Indiana & I can’t wait for Remy Martin V to come here. I drink on occassions & I’m tired of Grey Goose. I’ve been herring a lot of good comments on the new brand & reasonable price. We need it here in our city especially when I need a nice smooth drink to ease my mind or celebrate with with friends or family.

    I visited Cognac in October 2013, had the pleasure of trying a few Cognac Blanc but not Remy , in Fact we were not even told of it;s existence when we visited them, This I think was a great pity , I will contact them to see if I can get a sample.
