    Tasting review by Leyrat Cognac: Old gold color.  A dense initial nose displays dried hay and a touch of spice.  It develops to more pronounced oak with traces of pears and pepper.  The palate is smooth and rich, with an aftertaste of oak and flowers, violets in particular.

    Leyrat tasting notes: "Golden amber in colour. A powerful first nose is driven by spice and honey. The nose evolves toward pepper and cinnamon with soft honey and buttery richness. The palate is dense and at the same time clean and slightly dry, the Leyrat trademark."

    History of Cognac Leyrat



    Abecassis is one of the youngest cognac producers in the industry, being founded in 2005. The father and daughter team of Francis and Elodie manage a state of the art production empire, with each of the three separate brands boasting their own distillery. One thing that they are keen to continue is the time-honored manner of producing cognac, along with embracing the latest in technology to create cognacs of the highest quality possible.


    With thermo-controlled cellars, the house of Cognac Leyrat has, in its short period of production, already begun to carve itself a serious name in the industry. Leyrat’s cognacs have won many awards and are enjoyed in various countries around the globe.



    Leyrat Cognac Today



    Cellar master Simon Palmer is the man in charge of the eaux-de-vie, the aging and the blending. It is his watchful eye that sees the cognac production from the soil to the bottle; not only for Cognac Leyrat, but for the other brands in the Abecassis range as well.


    This young and vibrant brand uses the most up to date of advertising techniques – including social networking and blogs to bring awareness of Cognac Leyrat to other countries and also to younger consumers.



    News, Products and Price



    The relatively young brand of Cognac Leyrat already boasts some well recognized industry awards. These include Cognac Leyrat XO Vieille Réserve being awarded the gold medal at the 2011 International Spirits Competition.


    Leyrat’s flagship product is the Cognac Leyrat Extra Glory. This is a 40 year old blend presented in a beautiful decanter and box. The bottle retails at around €350 per bottle.
