Brillet Très Rare Cognac
Brillet Très Rare Single Grande Champagne Cognac is a very unique Cognac and as the name suggests - it is an incredibly rare one too. Made from a small batch of the same exceptional Cognac, the eaux-de-vie is patiently and naturally aged in barrels made from Limousin oak, until full maturity is achieved and they are ready to be stored in 25 litre demijohns. The temperament as well as the opulence of this special Cognac is testament to the extraordinary quality of the eau-de-vie that was distilled at the beginning of the 20th century (Confirmed by an expert appraisal February 19, 1999). Note: Cognacs aged in demijohns are sparse and few - a small number of demijohns are still available for the most dedicated and privileged Cognac enthusiasts alike.

How to enjoy
To experience such a fine and well-aged Cognac in all its potential, Brillet Tres Rare Cognac is best enjoyed - neat at room temperature.

Santé!
About Brillet J R Cognac
Proud of its family tradition, Brillet Cognac insists that the history is entirely linked to that of cognac. As early on as 1656, Guy Brillet installed his first alembic (the classic still) at his property in the Grande Champagne. This was the introduction of the double distillation process that creates cognac to this day. The Brillets live off their philosophy that things made with care are more valuable, sticking to traditional techniques of production and packaging. Their motto is not to impress through high maintenance or expensive containers, but rather through a humble and high quality aesthetic: a real family business!
