Delamain Réserve de la Famille Cognac: a Glimspe of Perfection
The product of a single cask aged between 50 and 60 years, this rare expression is sure to delight the few people who get the privilege to taste it. The eaux-de-vie for the Delamain Réserve de la Famille Cognac originate from a bouilleur de cru in the heart of the Grande Champagne region and aged in the cellars at Jarnac before being bottled in 2010. It is unblended, with the alcohol naturally reduced by age to 43% ABV. Until recently the liquid was reserved for family members and guests, which is why this release is a limited edition of only 180 bottles.
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 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. At over half a century old, this release is certainly no exception to the rule.
Presentation of the Bottle
This release comes in a stylish, tall bottle with a deep punt, slim neck and silver foil. Each bottle comes with an individual bottle number. The package is completed by a dark brown presentation box decorated with a silver plaque.
How to Enjoy Delamain Réserve de la Famille Cognac
Take the time to leave this Cognac to rest in your glass before tasting it, and prepare yourself for the moment when you take the first sip. For the best tasting experience, serve at room temperature, or slightly chilled, in a tulip glass.
