Remy Martin has announced a year-long partnership with Chef Kwame Onwuachi, beginning with a new culinary video series titled, “Flavor by the Grill.” The collaboration between the Cognac House and the award-winning, former Top Chef contestant is part of the brand’s continued commitment to exceptional hospitality within the mixology and gastronomy space.
“Flavor by the Grill” features regionally inspired grilling dishes made with a creative twist by Chef Kwame, and paired with a signature Rémy Martin cocktail. Together, the brand and chef highlight the depth of flavors and versatility of cognac, specifically enjoying Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal and Rémy Martin VSOP in the summer months.
“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 favorite drink in my family for generations. I am looking forward to growing with this amazing brand and creating authentic experiences!”
Chef Kwame found inspirations for his new recipes while traveling, working, and living in the Northeast, South, West and Midwest regions of the United States.
“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.”
Remy Martin’s partnership with Onwuachi follows in a long tradition of collaborations between the brand and some of the food world’s most influential individuals and brands, including Danielle Chang of LUCKYRICE and Michelin-starred Chef Jean-François Piège.
Over the coming months, Remy Martin and Chef Kwame collaborative programming will include masterclasses, culinart events, and more. Check out the first episode of “Flavor by the Grill” below:
