Description

Tiffon Vieux Supérieur Cognac

This delightful Hors d'Age expression was created by Master Blender at Tiffon, Richard Braastad. Tiffon Vieux Supérieur Cognac comprises a blend of eaux-de-vie that have been aged for over 70 years, making this a wonderful Cognac to be enjoyed on special occasions. Offering exceptional value for money for a Cognac of this age, it shows a complexity and richness that can only be achieved through extended maturation. 

The House of Tiffon is located along the banks of the Charente River in Jarnac, boasting forty hectares of vineyards in the Fins Bois and Grande Champagne crus. It is worth noting that Tiffon shares strong roots with Cognac Braastad, as the Braastad family today is at the helm and manages all aspects of production and sales for both houses. 

It was a Norwegian man by the name of Sverre Braastand who married the granddaughter of Mederic Tiffon and took over the family business; today, his son and grandchildren are in charge of operations. The family prefers to run the estate in a traditional manner, from grapevine to bottle. They grow Ugni Blanc, St. Emilion and Colombard grapes which can be turned into eaux-de-vie and either of their two distilleries; one in Jarnac and one at Château de Triac. The distillery in Jarnac has ten Charentais stills, each with a capacity of 2,500 litres, while the distillery at Château de Triac has seven stills of the same kind. Currently, around 12,000 oak casks of Cognac are patiently maturing in Tiffon's eleven warehouses.

Presentation of the Bottle

The Tiffon Vieux Supérieur Cognac is housed in a classic Charentais bottle shape. Simple and elegant, the label is printed with a calligraphy script without any fussy details. The liquid is simply allowed to speak for itself - just marvellous.  

How to Enjoy Tiffon Vieux Supérieur Cognac

Rare old blends like this deserve attention: pour gently into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds before taking a sip. To allow the aromas to open up further, a small dash of mineral water could be added.

About Tiffon Cognac

With strong ties to the Scandinavian country of Norway, the history of Cognac Tiffon dates back to 1875. Tiffon is to this day a family run business, and is based at the beautiful family home, the Chateau de Triac, just 5 kms from the town of Jarnac. The Chateau itself has a battle-scarred and convoluted history, dating back to the 11th century, which includes being razed to the ground by fires and completely demolished during the Hundred Years’ War. Today, the family grows 40 hectares of Grande Champagne and Fins Bois vines, overseen by cellar master Richard Braastad, who comes from an old cognac producers’ family.
