Remy Martin Masterclass , Celebrating 290 Years with "THE HEART OF COGNAC EXPERIENCE"
I always thought Martin in Remy Martin was pronounced Marta, afterall, it is French, and Martin Guerre was definitely Marta... but clearly I'm wrong, as it is pronounced Martin as in Aston Martin. Celebrating nearly 3 centuries (wow, if those cellar walls could talk, what tales would they tell) of excellence and heritage, this year's "The Heart of Cognac Experience", in conjunction with the Chinese Lunar Year of the Wooden Horse, also pays tribute to its emblem, the Centaur.....for a brief moment, I thought it was for me, since I am a Saggitarian. Well, I guess it's not always about me. Ahem.
Held at the White Box Gallery at Publika, the venue was transformed into a party area, art gallery, laboratory and cellar all at once. The "Centaur Creative Awards" featured paintings of these mythical half man half horse (you know what they say about how horses are hung, so it's a good thing that the half man portion is the top half), which apparently reflect the qualities synonymous with the House of Remy Martin. Boldness, Energy, Generosity & Courage. Guests were to vote on a slip of paper which piece they thought was the best, under "People's choice awards" or "Media choice awards".
After hobnobbing with the socialites of KL, and partaking of dainty canapes, and downing several cocktails created with Remy Martin, (they were deceptively potent), we were ushered into the "laboratory"...
Apparently the model answer was 20% of the 4, 70% of the 8, and 10% of the 14. At least what's what I scribbled on my press kit, so I presume that was the answer.
Thank you again Remy Cointreau for a wonderful fun filled educational evening.
