Camus Cognac

At the turn of the century, in 2000, Camus released Extra Elegance – a cognac that was innovative at the time, and was a story that told the history of the cognac house. The blend won many awards, and 15 years later, they released what they describe as ‘the darker side’ of the cognac – Camus Extra ‘Dark and Intense’.

More aromatic and intense than its predecessor, Camus Extra Dark and Intense Cognac has managed to retain its elegance and purity.  The creation of such a cognac is thanks to the skill and ability of the Cellar Master.  After selecting the eaux-de-vies to be included, the barrels are opened and the contents removed.  The barrels are then exposed to an open flame for just the right amount of time (as determined by the Cellar Master).  This process regenerates their full aromatic potential.  The cognac is then returned to the barrel to continue to age.  This is then tested on a daily basis to ensure that the process is stopped at just the right time when it's arrived at the perfect, and unique, character.

The cognac is presented in a dark and elegant carafe, topped by a band and gold colored cap that represents the flame toasting process during its creation.
