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.

Unaged Remy Martin V clear spirit

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.

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.

#9 malatu on Feb 13, 2011, says:

I”ve returned from San Francisco and I”ve bought a bottle of Remy Martin V in a liquor store just because I saw the advertisement on the window and I’m a cognac fan. Today I went to heaven it’s just amazing… you can’t decide if it’s cognac or vodka, great smell and even better taste. Wasn’t expensive et all. It;s definitely better iced.

#10 walt bauer on Feb 15, 2011, says:

It’s great that Remy has launched a clear 100% distilled grapes spirit. It lends
credibility to pisco brandy from Peru which is also a clear distilled grapes spirit
produced in the same manner as the fine cognacs of France.
Try Inca Gold Pisco as a representative product in this category.

#30 drinkzonme on Jul 16, 2011, says:

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought cognac were “brandy”.I read somewhere that they were called cognac only cause they were aged and distalled in a city called cognac france hence the name cognac..

By the way all the liqour stores in nyc stock the new remy v..

#31 NuNu on Jul 17, 2011, says:

Will this ever be available in North Carolina?

#32 Kdubya on Jul 18, 2011, says:

This is definitely not a cognac, but something between tequila and moonshine. Ideal for mixed drinks, raspberry, pomegranate lemonade etc. It does pack a punch. Its availible in Chicago fellas, cheers…..

#33 D miles on Jul 18, 2011, says:

#60 Mike on Jan 19, 2014, says:

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.
