This Revamped Rarity from Normandin-Mercier is a Golden Ticket
Normandin Mercier Grande Champagne Rare Cognac comes straight from the premier cru of the Cognac region - Grande Champagne.

But the thrill doesn’t end there - this captivating cognac is rendered even more so with its brand-new look. A ravishingly revamped offering, this beautiful decanter bottle in its quaint box invites love at first sight.
Normandin-Mercier is the trading house behind Normandin Mercier Grande Champagne Rare Cognac. Founded in 1872, it is a cognac house full of passion and knowledge that today lives on through the work of Edouard, Jean-Marie and Audrey Normandin, who form a formidable family affair. Sitting amidst the beautiful surroundings of Château de la Péraudière, Normandin-Mercier produces cognacs that range from a VSOP upwards, alongside a superb collection of Pineau de Charentes.

Taken neat, its luxurious lingering effect can be best appreciated.

With old-fashioned charm, a fresh new look and enduring elegance, this blend more than fits the bill for all those who enjoy the finer things in life.
