This year, GQ proudly hosts their annual Men Of The Year Ceremony, in association with Hugo Boss and Rémy Martin, at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London, on the evening of 3 September.
Last years’ awards were outstanding, with breakthrough stars mingling with legendary names. (But let’s admit it, Chris Hemsworth who won the breakthrough star award in 2012 isn’t as green as the title makes him). Monica Bellucci almost outshone sartorial royalty, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana displayed Italian glamour, while Harvey Weinstein paid tribute to James Corden in a speech that hinted at future collaboration.
This year, Rémy Martin, the iconic cognac, is excited to announce that it will be the lead spirits sponsor. Serving the R&G, ahem, well the R&GQ (cute right) and other bespoke cocktails at the main awards ceremony, Rémy will also be creating a bespoke bar at the after-party on the Royal Opera House balcony.
With a golden colour, delicate floral aromas of violets and rose petals, ripe apricots and sweet vanilla – heck you can’t go wrong with the cognac of all cognacs on the 3rd of September, in London Town.
Make sure you check out their website to see who is chosen for each prestigious award. And while you do that, mix yourself one of these beauties!

About Rémy Martin VSOP
Since 1724, Rémy Martin has produced cognacs of exceptional quality and taste. It sources 100% of its grapes from ‘Appellation Fine Champagne Contrôlée’, the two best areas in the heart of the Cognac region, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne.
With over 300 years of rich heritage in the heart of the Cognac region, Rémy Martin has always kept pace with the times whiledrawing on its traditions. Rémy Martin VSOP has been developed in recognition of the changing European palates and continues the cognac house’s tradition of refreshing the range with new blends whilst preserving the high standard and heritage behind the brand. The new finishing period, in which the eaux-de-vie spends one year in Limousin mature oak casks that are over 20 years old, enhances the peach and apricot notes due to the small size of the casks amplifying the exchange between the cognac and the air of the cellar.
