L’Essence de Courvoisier, the most prestigious cognac in Courvoisier’s collection, is pairing up with Dutch diamond company Gassan Diamonds to offer two brilliant-cut diamond rings, each with their own certificate of quality and inspired by the L’Essence de Courvoisier bottle, which are available to buy exclusively at Schiphol Airport for two weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day.
The rings are only available to buy when purchasing a bottle of L’Essence de Courvoisier. Both the Cognac and ring retail at $2,786.60 (€2,000) each.
Launched in travel retail across Europe in December 2009, L’Essence de Courvoisier is a blend of extremely rare Cognac from the most exclusive crus, Grande Champagne and Borderies, presented in a handcrafted Baccarat crystal decanter, innovatively suspended in a frame.
The finely crafted crystal stopper was inspired by the signet rings that Napoleon Bonaparte, who was known to hold Courvoisier in high regard, gave to commanders in his army in recognition of noble acts.
The Gassan-designed solitaire natural Cognac-coloured diamond, which rests in an 18ct white and yellow gold setting, is modelled on the L’Essence de Courvoisier crystal stopper and the shape of the bottle.
The Valentine’s Day offer of L’Essence de Courvoisier and the Gassan ring is available at two locations in Schiphol Airport’s Departure Lounge 2: Gassan’s Jewellery & Watches shop and the Liquor & Tobacco shop.
