A reader sent pictures of his bottle, asks for help. It’s a crown filled with brandy, actually it’s Armagnac. So it’s not a cognac, but quite comparable. Sempe Armagnac Sempe – Very Old Imperial Reserve – and made with Baccarat Crystal.
(If you also have bottle pictures you would like to submit, send us photos and information: Use this form – but please be aware: if you don’t follow the steps precisely, we will not publish your bottle.)
This bottle is in a Baccarat decanter. The N stands for Napoleon, the royal crown is clearly the concept.
It is 1 of 6,000 special edition bottles and is numbered 02852.
The inlay card states; “This very exclusive shape, handmade in finest heavy lead crystal and inlaid with pure gold with its frosted crystal stopper, makes this decanter the most expensive Baccarat available today. It contains Sempe’s “Imperial Reserve”, a very old and rare armagnac”.
Any ideas? If you have any comments, please write some words.
