Cognac involves aromatic richness and a diversity of styles that makes it an extraordinary grape to sip alone and as a flexible ingredient for mixology. It has charmed imbibers for centuries, due to its heritage, and the uniqueness of the region. For starters, it is aged in wood casks, where special care is taken to protect and nurture the cognacs as they mature and gain more flavor and roundness. While all cognacs are required to age for a minimum of two years, the vast majority of houses and producers let theirs mature longer. This offers a stunning array of aromas and flavor profiles- From light and delicate, to rich and bold, all exceptional.
