The Last Drop Distillers 1947 Hors d'Age Cognac

The Last Drop Distillers Cognac

A truly special and unique Cognac, The Last Drop Distillers 1947 Hors d'Age Cognac is one of the first post-World War II distillations created.  And at last, in the 21st century, we have the opportunitiy to own and taste it.  However, only 186 bottles of this little piece of history have been produced - so when it's gone, it's gone.

It was traditionally produced, distilled in a small copper still and then left to let the passage of time work its miracle.  Said to have 'the richness of summer flowers', yet still be fresh, young, and delicious, this wonderful Cognac comes presented in a deep-red, leather presentation case, complete with an additional miniature version (50ml) of the same bottle.  A Certificate of Authenticity is included, a tasting booklet bound in leather, and a custom made stopper.

A real collector's item.

Tasting Notes

Tasting review by The Last Drop:

Nose: A waft of old roses, charged with a touch of citrus

Palate: You will find great complication. First, rich old preserved fruits. Then, a burst of flowers. Finally, the bite of the ancient eau-de-vie – the ‘fire’ that belongs only to Cognac

Three partners with more than 120 years’ experience of the fine spirits trade between them have formed a tiny company to share their experience and enjoyment with connoisseurs around the world, bottling and selling a few of the finest distilled spirits they have found.
