Montegrappa and Wealth Solutions have launched a limited edition of the Cognac Pen – a unique fountain pen enhanced with a drop of the oldest cognac in the world. The premiere of this extremely rare collector’s item took place in Warsaw on 5 December 2016.
The Cognac Pen has been created by Montegrappa and contains an actual sample of the oldest cognac in the world, provided for the project by the Wealth Solutions company. The liquor, enclosed in a capsule, dates from 1762 and has been officially entered into the Guinness Book of Records. French finesse and traditional Italian craftsmanship have merged to create this true masterpiece.
The capsule containing the precious liquor is placed at the top of the ferrule. In keeping with the tools of the craft of cognac distillation, the body of the Cognac Pen has been manufactured from real oak wood. This makes reference to ancient local traditions and requirements. According to French law, no liquor may be called cognac unless it has been aged for at least two years in an oak cask, near Cognac. Decorative elements with grapevine motifs on the body of this exquisite pen make further reference to noble French liquors.
The Cognac fountain pen, with its unusual capsule, has been produced in a limited edition of 110 pieces only (100 in silver, 10 in gold), exclusively for Wealth Solutions. The pen is available in two versions: one for men measuring 155mm and for women at 130mm. The Cognac Pen can be filled by a converter or a cartridge.
