Last week, Rémy Martin teamed up with The MICHELIN Guide for the MICHELIN Star Revelation Ceremony in New York City. As an exclusive partner of the MICHELIN Guide, Rémy Martin, inspired by strong shared values, was honored to be part of the gastronomic celebrations and discovery of chefs and restaurants leading the way in exquisite culinary expertise in this vibrant city. As icons of fine dining and spirits, Michelin and Rémy Martin have celebrated sustainable excellence and exceptional know-how for centuries. Similar to the passion seen in MICHELIN honorees, the work mirrors the commitment of the Cellar Masters at Rémy Martin, with their unwavering vision of excellence and craftsmanship to the land and Cognac Fine Champagne they produce.
The outstanding evening began with specialty cocktails including the Rémy Martin Tercet Tropical, Rémy XO Constellation and Rémy Martin Tercet served neat and on the rocks, while guests mingled before the ceremony. During the ceremony, Rémy Martin further celebrated excellence by introducing the Michelin Exceptional Cocktails Award. The award, which recognizes beverage directors for their talent to recommend a food and cocktail pairing or unique beverage program to enhance customers’ culinary experiences, was presented to Philip Dizard, Head of Operation/Beverage Director at Noda. Other VIP guests included actor and television host, Neil Patrick Harris, Alexis Garcin, President and CEO of Michelin North America, and more.
Rémy Martin honored exceptional hospitality within the mixology and culinary space and invited guests to engage with a special interactive bar known as the Opulence Revealed Experience—a multi-sensory tasting experience that allows guests to discover a deeper understanding and appreciation of the finer points of Rémy Martin XO and Rémy Martin Tercet. The Opulence Revealed is an exploration of textures, flavors, and aromas, and brings to life the intrinsic story of Rémy Martin’s exceptional cognacs. Last night’s bar experience featured an opulent spread of flavors and delicacies that revealed the many layers of the Rémy cognacs between the blending of the hundreds of eaux-de-vie in Rémy Martin XO and the perfect blend seen in Tercet.
Like Rémy Martin’s Cellar Masters, these honored Chefs magnify the gifts of nature and use ingredients to craft moments of exception that celebrate the land and culinary excellence. New restaurants honored included: Al Coro and SAGA with two stars and Clover Hill, Dirt Candy, Frevo, Icca, Joomak Banjum, L’Abeille, Le Pavillon, Mari, Noz 17, Oiji Mi, One White Street, Red Paper Clip, Semma, Shion 69 Leonard Street, 63 Clinton, Torien and Yoshino with one star.
