NEW YORK, NY— Rémy Martin teams up with chef and TV personality Alejandra Ramos, interior designer and lifestyle expert Evette Ríos, and mixologist Alex Valencia to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and honor the Latino tradition of Sobremesa, a post-modern tradition food that embraces people’s appreciation and time.

Rémy Martin remains at the forefront of momentous occasions that bring people together to create deep-seated connections. Rémy Martin has appointed the global creative agency Fred & Farid to enhance the Latino-artistic culture, personality and passion of the present talents with dynamic and eye-catching film. Paying tribute to the rich and diverse Latino culture, the film was designed by an all-Latin cast of creative directors, illustrators, animators and a production team. Created by Colombian illustrator, animator and motion designer Jhony Trujillo, the animation was inspired by visual references to create pattern illustrations and animations. The film features various art media, styles and cultures inspired by art, illustration and craft, depicted from the diverse Latino countries around the world.
With almost 300 years of excellence in production of Cognac Fine Champagne and symbolizing the diversity of craft and tradition, Rémy Martin honors the cultures of excellence through the ritual of Sobremesa, inviting us all to reflect, embrace cultural curiosities and ideologies and to share with our friends and loved one and celebrate what we bring to the table together.
To capture the essence of Sobremesa, Rémy Martin will bring the collaboration to life with curated craft cocktails created by mixologist Alex Valencia. Alex Valencia’s Rémy Martin-inspired cocktails highlight the luscious and complex flavor profiles of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal and Rémy Martin Tercet. Made with Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal, the Rémy Coquito is sweetened with the richness of condensed milk, delicious coconut cream and evaporated milk; topped with the warm, floral notes of vanilla extract and topped with grated cinnamon and nutmeg. The Tercet Tropical, made with Rémy Martin Tercet, is infused with vibrant and fertile notes of pineapple, apricot-vanilla jam and lime juice; topped with dehydrated pineapple, lighting a new path for cognac drinkers with its unique blend of exotic and elegant aromas.
“As a Latina, my heritage and culture inform and influence every aspect of my work. I have fond memories of the time I spent at the table with family and friends. Food connects us all, and every dish I make is personalized, made with love and tells a story,” said Alejandra Ramos, TV Personality and Chef. “A great meal deserves to be paired with a lofty cocktail experience. I am delighted to be working with Rémy Martin, whose versatile and unique flavor profiles complement the aromatic, savory and delicious culinary influences of Latin American cuisine.”
“Our homes are where we share and pass on family traditions and legacies. Working with Rémy Martin to create a thoughtful, interactive and vibrant atmosphere aligned with the celebration of my Latino heritage is a proud moment for me.” explained Evette Ríos, interior designer. “My Puerto Rican roots have played a huge part in shaping the person I am today.
