The Lloyds were among the 350 guests at the black tie beautifully gowned and bejeweled Sugar Cane Ball on the beach at Round Hill under a big Caribbean moon.
The guests dined on Shrimp Cocktail, Beef Wellington and Pavlova for dessert, lots champagne and red and white Jamaican wine.
Not all of them, though: the region’s products were divided into three classes.
Cognac matures in the same way as whiskies and wine when aged in barrels, and most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.They were headed by ‘Champagne brandy’ from the ‘Champagnes’ – the chalky slopes south of the river opposite the little town of Cognac – as well as what are now the ‘Fins Bois de Jarnac’ north of the even smaller town, a few miles east of Cognac.Then as now, it was the combination of the capacity to age, plus the complexity of the aromas and flavours of the drink, that made – and make – it unique.I have had this special bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII in my collection for a long time, given as a gift from a restaurateur. Although the year is not identifiable on the bottle, I was told it dates back to the 30’s.
