Penfolds Aevum Imperial Service Ritual in collaboration with Saint-Louis
20 OCTOBER 2016
Penfolds has unveiled a collaboration with Europe’s most respected French glassmaker, Saint-Louis to acknowledge the service ritual long associated with Grange.
This collaboration also recognises the first commercial release of only five 2012 Grange Imperial 6 litre bottles available on the planet.
The distinctive hand-made crystal objet d’art service vessel, Penfolds Aevum Imperial Service Ritual, have been designed exclusively for the 2012 Grange Imperial. It precisely balances and elevates the Imperial to facilitate the perfect pour. This statuesque design reflects a powerful and passionate union and painstaking hours of crafting and refining the perfect piece. It also respects customs of the past and the rarity and splendour of every drop of Grange.
This is the first time Saint-Louis, who has been making handcrafted crystal objects in France since 1586, has collaborated with a global brand outside of Europe. “When talent, heritage and know how come together, the journey from craft to ritual can be truly extraordinary. The collaboration between Penfolds and Saint-Louis represents a marriage of two masters of their crafts.,” said Jérôme de Lavergnolle, Chief Executive Officer of Saint-Louis.
As part of the collaboration, a limited edition release of smaller sculptured Penfolds Aevum Crystal Decanter with the 750ml 2012 Grange will also available. Each decanter featured the striking diamond cut, a signature hallmark of Saint-Louis. Hand-blown, hand crafted.
