Following its launch in cities around the globe including London, Shanghai and Moscow, La Maison Rémy Martin made its Southeast Asia debut right here in Kuala Lumpur last week.
“Malaysia’s cocktail scene has exploded in the last few years and is now one of the fastest growing markets in the region. It’s therefore no surprise that Malaysia was chosen as the first country in Southeast Asia to launch La Maison Rémy Martin,” said Tyrel Ball, General Manager of Rémy Cointreau Malaysia.
The by-invite-only 6-day experiential pop-up was held at Zebra Square KL, which the brand had transformed into a lifestyle haven offering artisanal masterclasses and exclusive workshops. Cognac enthusiasts, fans of the Maison and members of the media alike were invited to discover a curated journey of interactive experiences highlighting the motto, “One Life Live Them”.
Embodying the motto were various sections offering unique and enriching experiences to encourage guests to explore and celebrate every facet of themselves.
Artistic Direction saw guests on a special tour detailing the history of Rémy Martin and the cognac making process led by Rémy Martin’s Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau, who also officiated the opening of the pop-up on its first day.
