Vusa Zaya, Rémy Martin brand ambassador
Exploring Rémy Martin's Eau-de-Vie

Nearing the end of a long week, I was delighted to accept an invitation to an exclusive Rémy Martin tasting at the new luxury Silo Hotel at the Waterfront on 6 July 2017. A fitting, intimate get-together to ease into the weekend. I decided to take my husband along since he has the better palate between the two of us. Brand ambassador Vusa Zaya was our host for the evening and we were pleased with the warm welcome when we arrived at the Silo Hotel's library, a quiet and elegant section of the hotel where the tasting was being held.
