We work closely together with many of the large cognac houses and therefore have access to barrels of different ages of the best quality at all times.
Cognac is a protected designation of origin. The wines are grown exclusively in the surrounding wine-growing areas of Cognac - Cognacais, Charente and Charente-Maritime. With about 90 %, the grape Ugni Blanc (Trebbiano) has the largest share of the total area. Since 1930 the wines have been classified into six quality grades (crus): Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, Bois Ordinaires.
For quality reasons, we do not operate our own warehouse. Without any exception, our used barrels will be delivered directly from our partners and are previously tested and carefully checked by our international master coopers. With this approach, we want to avoid long idle times, as a result of which the barrels lose a lot of quality.
NOTE: Our products are only sold to companies or traders following § 14 of the German Civil Code. Consumers are clearly excluded from completion of a contract! Actual barrels / casks may differ from displayed sample images!
