Delamain Gift Box Trio Cognac: a Luxury Tasting Set
Comprising some astounding single estate, Premier Cru Cognacs, this tasting set is sure to impress any Cognac connoisseur. A great gift, the Delamain Gift Box Trio features three different 20cl bottles to taste: Pale & Dry, Vesper and Très Vénérable. The Pale & Dry is an XO-aged Cognac, famous for its delicate and elegant nose. Vesper, aged an average of 35 years, is a more round and mature expression. Last, but certainly not least, the Très Vénérable: aged for over four decades for aromatic perfection and complexity. All the eaux-de-vie used to make these Cognacs have been sourced from the Grande Champagne region.
The House of Delamain’s unrivalled passion for creating vintage Cognac has been passed down from generation to generation since 1759, the year when James Delamain left Ireland to settle in Jarnac as a Cognac merchant. His grandson Henri founded Maison Delamain in 1824, and today the 9th generation of the Delamain family still runs the company - with a total of fifteen employees. Known for keeping to extremely old-fashioned production methods, they are also the only Cognac producer which exclusively releases Cognac aged XO or older. While they pride themselves on their Grande Champagne AOC, Maison Delamain prefer to not be tied to any specific winegrower or purchasing contract, instead of selecting individually the finest wines available every year.

The slim 20cl bottles are as elegant as their full-size counterparts, featuring distinct labels to distinguish between the three expressions. The set is presented in a white box with a cut-out section showing the labels. It would make a great a present for anyone who loves the finer things in life.
