Our first-ever Crowdfunded Cognac

Introducing our first-ever crowdfunded Cognaccreated by YOU and produced by the world-renowned artisans of Cognac Prunier.

We took to the social media community to find out your preferences when it comes to the terroir, taste, age, ABV and price of your ideal Cognac – letting everyday Cognac aficionados take the reins, with the opportunity to select all of the product's features.

We also threw out the potential name ideas for you to play with, and although the results came back fairly split, Cognac Imaginé stole the title of this crowdfunded masterpiece in the making.

Growth Area: The survey results confirm that the Grande Champagne (as predicted) takes the lead as the Premier Cru and firm favorite terroir.

Taste: Cognac enthusiasts are most partial to a fruity aromatic expression as opposed to woody, floral and spicy tasting notes.

ABV: The stronger, the better, they say – since the poll came back with most preferring their Cognac with ABV of 45- 49%.

Price: Last but not least, much of the community agreed that, above all, the price matters the least, as most value finding an outstanding Cognac first and foremost and then considering the price later.

Why have we chosen to collaborate with Prunier

Steeped in tradition, Cognac Prunier is a family-run firm that has been blending Cognac since 1701. With cellars in the heart of Cognac, Prunier boasts more than 250 years of history and is specialized in the art of aging, blending and bottling. The masterful balance of combining artisanal savoir-faire with the technical skills required to achieve utmost perfection enables Prunier to continuously produce Cognac of exceptional quality time and time again. And with the past, present and future at the core of this brand's values, we feel confident that Cognac Prunier will deliver our crowdfunded Cognac with precision and close attention to the features voted for by YOU – our loyal Cognac community.
