Luxury French cognac brand Rome de Bellgarde has partnered with London-based luxury leather goods manufacturer, Ettinger, on a series of limited edition gift boxes.

Available to purchase from the 14th December, the Exclusive Christmas Gift Box comprises a 100ml bottle of Rome de Bellegarde’s limited edition X.O. cognac and a co-branded 4oz Ettinger Hip Flask.

The flask, which can be customised on request, is an ideal vessel for one of the world’s very best cognac. Wrapped in a buttery soft leather in Rome de Bellgarde’s signature orange tone it also fits well in pockets or smaller bags.

David Romuald-Bellegarde Smeralda, owner of Rome De Bellegarde says: “We are truly honoured to share this collaboration with a great craftsmanship brand such as Ettinger, who in many ways share a similar story to the Bellegarde family and display great resilience. This limited edition box was designed with our customers in mind making sure they get the very best from us.”

Also commenting on the partnership, Robert Ettinger, CEO of Ettinger notes: “We are delighted to have collaborated with the world’s most expensive cognac on this project and to be part of an amazing Christmas Gift Box set. For those lucky enough to receive one – with only 50 having been made – we’re sure it will bring much joy this Christmas.”

“It is always a pleasure to work with another craftsmanship brand and we hope our flasks continue to be enjoyed long after the  X.O. cognac is finished!”

Both Rome de Bellegarde and Ettinger have come from a long and traditional family heritage to create some of the finest luxury products in their categories. Whether using premium leather goods in the UK or blending the best Eaux-de-vie in the Grande Champagne region of Cognac, the brands pride themselves on delivering only excellence and greatness.
