Eye: Polished copper.

Nose: The sweet notes of dried figs and dates are perfectly balanced by the scent of toasted oak staves, supple leather and forest undergrowth.

Taste: Full and powerful, with more dried fruits giving way to spices, vanilla and liquorice. The finish is exceptionally long, testifying to the long maturation of this Cognac.

Description

Meukow Hors d'Age Rarissime Cognac: a Rare Masterpiece

An outstanding Cognac of a significant age, Meukow Hors d'Age Rarissime Cognac is a wonderful collector’s item, composed of the oldest barrels of the Meukow company. In order to preserve its full depth of aroma and flavor, it has been bottled at a cask strength of 41.3%. Only 600 bottles have been made of this limited edition - so once it’s gone, it’s gone. 

Meukow was founded by two brothers from Silesia, August-Christophe and Gustav Meukow, and is today one of the few Russian Cognac brands in the Charente region. Initially sent to source Cognac for Tsar Alexander II in 1850, the brothers travelled back and forth for years in their search for the most prestigious casks. Seeing an opportunity to start up business for themselves, in 1862 they decided to remain in France and opened their distillery.

The company grew rapidly, managed under the influence of prestigious shareholders like Henri Bouraud, the Mayor of Cognac from 1849 to 1869. Today, Meukow Cognac is distributed in over 80 countries around the world. Cellar Master Anne Sarteaux oversees all production of Meukow Cognac, and with her distinctive style and attention to detail, she carries on traditions that have been passed down since the house was founded.

Presentation of the Bottle

Simple and elegant, the bottle design for this release is as classic as the Cognac it houses. The dark wax and vintage-style labels embody the quality that is contained inside, allowing the liquid to speak for itself. Each bottle is individually numbered and presented in a polished wood presentation case. 

How to Enjoy Meukow Hors d'Age Rarissime Cognac

Created with extraordinary care, this aged Cognac deserves your full attention. Serve neat in tulip glasses at room temperature, letting it rest for 30 seconds before taking the first sip. Perfect as an after-dinner drink, or enjoyed with rich desserts.

About Meukow Cognac

As the name suggests, Cognac Meukow is one of the few Russian Cognac brands in the Charente region. In 1862 two brothers were sent over to France to supply the Tsar with Cognac and decided to start their own Cognac distillery.

The brand has become known as the “jaguar liquor”, or the “panther liquor”, thanks to its distinctive bottle design. The big cat in question is in fact a puma, and today, with its famous logo, ranks among the most well-known Cognac brands in the world. Its qualities are strength, elegance, sensuality and exotism, the character traits of the puma.

The distillery is housed in Matha in the Charente Maritime, and are particularly celebrated for their VS Cognac, Vanilla Cognac liqueur and 90-Proof Liquor among many others.
