The international architecture studio ARK Architects has announced its alliance with the legendary French spirit firm LOUIS XIII: emblematic icon of the most exclusive cognacs.
For the internationally renowned architect Manuel Ruiz Moriche, the values that architecture shares with this fragrance, which is an exceptional experience unique in the world, are based on the fact that “from the first drop that reaches our lips we can see the exquisite complexity that it has continued to create a work of art and that, as you continue to advance, as in our Villas, a burst of infinite sensations is unleashed, as we discover the softness and sobriety of a creation that defines the future while honoring the past ”.
For Manuel Ruiz Moriche, “the union allows us to turn the exclusive wineries of our Villas into a museum where to highlight a great sensorial masterpiece, the LOUIS XIII decanter, within an exclusive space created to enhance the content of this iconic decanter. through the senses ”.
"It is an honor to create an outstanding space within our Villas for a masterpiece, such as each exclusive LOUIS XIII bottle. It has been a difficult challenge because this cognac decanter is already a work of art in itself, we can blind ourselves with its tonalities, savor its content before opening the decanter and feel the more than 100 years of history in each of its drops. This art that is alien to fashion, but which defines the present and future of our clients, maintains the philosophy of each one of our Villas, the essence of a powerful history and an emotional commitment to the people who put all their passion to create something unique, like LOUIS XIII ", Manuel Ruiz Moriche has pointed out about the collaboration agreement.
The Villas of Manuel Ruiz Moriche (in Spain, France, the United States, to name a few countries) always reflect an amazing journey. Select each material, texture and shape that will define the experience that its owner will live, which begins with the preparation of the land and ends when the Villa is completed with every detail, including furniture, home automation, swimming pools, spa and gardening, executed with pure emotion and visual poetry.
Manuel Ruiz Moriche has conceived the unique space within the wineries of his Villas, with the same philosophy, passion and curiosity as when he designed his architectural masterpieces, where light, volumes and natural materials ennoble the traditions that have allowed us to maintain unalterable the art of distilling the famous LOUIS XIII cognac.
“For me it was essential to create a unique space where a cognac, created with the patience and talent of several generations of cellar masters, could show the inhabitants of our Villas, the essence of a really beautiful drink, and it has been with light , the most noble stone and wood, where we have found the answer ", adds Manuel Ruiz Moriche.

Together we are able to offer an Immersive Art experience in our clients' wineries, challenging the senses with LOUIS XIII Jeroboam or Mathusalem and providing a legacy for the future. Decades will pass for LOUIS XIII, but just as in the architectural expressiveness of Manuel Ruiz's projects, the passion for the beauty of art will remain intact ”.
