This artistic project expresses the delicate relationship between nature and time, and the long-lasting effects humans have on their environment. LOUIS XIII is familiar with those effects, as it must always think a century ahead: each decanter of LOUIS XIII Cognac represents the life achievement of generations of Cellar Masters.
Pharrell’s exclusive track is engraved on a unique clay record made from the rich soil of Cognac, France. It is being kept in one of LOUIS XIII’s cellars in a custom, state-of-the-art safe. The safe has no code and no key, as it will unlock automatically in November 2117. But it is also water-soluble, which means the world’s only copy of “100 Years” will be destroyed if our neglect for the earth leads water levels to rise up.
I was really honored to attend this event witness Vincent J. Géré, Louis XIII Asia Pacific Director, unveil the unique safe storing Pharrell’s "100 years" exclusively displayed at this event.

Mr Géré also explained the delicate relationship between LOUIS XIII and Time, and how each decanter of LOUIS XIII represents the life achievement of generations of cellar masters.
I tried the prestige LOUIS XIII and can't agree more with Mr Géré, that the Cognac is like walking into a big Cathedral, you cannot see everything in one go, but you see and taste more after taking more sips.
