At the peak of the high season in Miami Beach, luxury brands look for opportunities to reach out to their consumers and private events seem to be the perfect outlet to mingle with them.
On February, Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24, 2011 Louis XIII cognac (by Remy Martin) hosted a series of 2 private tasting events, in partnership with Nisi Yachts, Sojo Design and The Webster. Each event was an intimate affair for no more than 60 VIP guests, including residents of luxury condominiums and homes in South Beach, socialites and philanthropists.

Guests enjoyed exquisite hors d'oeuvres and champagne at both events, but the highlight of the evening was a private tasting of Louis XIII, a cognac manufactured using grapes from the Grande Champagne territory of Cognac, France. It is blended from 1200 eaux-de-vie, some more than a century in age, then it is aged in tiercons, oak barrels that are several hundred years old, in its own cellar. The average price range is between $1,800 to $2,500 per bottle.

Fabulous set up by Sojo Design
The events were co-hosted by Sofia Joelsson, principal of Sojo Design, a boutique high end interior design firm. Sofia's penthouse terrace at Capri South Beach overlooks the Biscayne Bay, with a sophisticated design and event friendly layout; it was the perfect private setting to entertain guests while making them feel at home.
