Remy Martin puts NFC chip in its Cognac to prove they are genuine

How do you tell a fine, authentic cognac from some knockoff in a fake bottle? Right now that requires a keen eye and an interest in cognac, but in the near future it might only require a smartphone with an NFC chip. Premiumalcohol maker Rémy Martin has started production of a new “connected” bottle with an NFC tag to guarantee freshness and authenticity. Truly this is the future.

For the unaware, cognac is a liquor produced from distilled wine. Most makers age cognac for about six years, though some less expensive versions are aged for much less time and infused with caramel coloring to fake the proper look. Rémy Martin prides itself on aging all its cognac for at least 10 years and as long as 37 years. You’re looking at over $100 for a regular bottle of Rémy Martin, and probably much more for the connected bottle.

The tag will be hidden inside the cap, but why the cap? Firstly, it’s easy to get your smartphone pressed up against it to read the tag, and second it allows the bottle to know whether or not it has been opened. When the seal is broken, a circuit is tripped that causes the NFC tag to label the bottle as “opened.” Thus, if you scan a “Rémy Martin CLUB” connected bottle, it will tell you if someone has previously opened it.

The company will also have a dedicated app that handles the identification of the bottles, but presumably it’s Android only, as the iPhone’s NFC chip is locked down right now. When you scan bottles, you’ll get points which can earn you rewards and prizes, but if you’re buying pricey booze, I don’t know that saving up loyalty points is high on your to-do list. The smart bottles will launch first in China this fall. Timing for other regions is still undecided.
