Rémy Martin’s collaboration is the brand’s continued commitment to exceptional hospitality within the mixology and gastronomy space
Rémy Martin Cognac has announced a year-long collaboration with globally recognised, award-winning, Chef Kwame Onwuachi as part of The House’s continued commitment to exceptional hospitality within the mixology and gastronomy space.
The brand’s partnership launches with a video series titled, “Flavor by the Grill” featuring classic, regionally inspired grilling dishes with a creative twist by Chef Kwame, paired with a signature Rémy Martin cocktail.
Through curated content, Rémy Martin and the former Top Chef contestant collaborate to highlight the depth of flavours and versatility of cognac, specifically enjoying Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal and Rémy Martin VSOP in the summer months.
The rich complexity and unique aromas of the brand’s portfolio have established it as the preferred cognac by Chefs globally, making it the optimal choice for crafting bright, refreshing cocktails.
“Rémy Martin’s commitment to excellence is something that I am truly excited about being a part of,” said Kwame Onwuachi, “Rémy resonates with me on a personal level because it’s part of my heritage and has been a favourite drink in my family for generations. I am looking forward to growing with this amazing brand and creating authentic experiences!”
Whilst creating these new recipes, Chef Kwame, whom recently received the Best New Chef title by Food & Wine magazine, found inspiration from his time spent travelling, working and living in the Northeast, South, West and Midwest regions of the United States. These past experiences, blended with his culinary exploration of the Rémy Martin Cognac, have resulted in the dynamic meals and vibrant cocktails highlighted in this series.
“We are incredibly proud to team up with Chef Kwame Onwuachi,” said Ian McLernon, President and CEO Americas at Rémy Cointreau. “Chef Kwame’s wholehearted dedication to excellence in his craft and the culinary space inspires us and is celebrated here at Rémy Martin. We are excited to see his culinary prowess in action with our liquid and look forward to his talent being spotlighted in this partnership.”
Since 1724, the House of Rémy Martin has produced premium cognacs that consistently appeal to the world’s most discerning connoisseurs and restaurateurs, many of which have selected the brand to serve at their renowned venues.
The partnership follows previous collaborations with some of the world’s most acclaimed food influencers and brands, including Danielle Chang of LuckyRice and Michelin-starred Chef Jean-François Piège, solidifying the brand’s legacy in the global food scene and as the preferred cognac of the culinary world
