Description

Camus Caribbean Expedition Cognac

Camus Caribbean Expedition is a Cognac that explores beyond the realms of contemporary Cognac production. The vision of the house of Camus was to travel on an experimental journey away from the confines of making Cognac in order to intensify aromas and curate something special on the Cognac market. Camus Caribbean Expedition is a double maturation Cognac that has been aged in oceanic and tropical climates. From La Rochelle, 10 sealed drums of Cognac (in their fourth year of aging) departed on a tropical voyage to Barbados. Throughout the journey by boat, the eaux-de-vie undertook natural reduction via oceanic ripening. The tropical maturation process of Caribbean Expedition Cognac lasted one year in total and the barrels were kept in traditional cellars of Barbados. Due to the special production and maturation method of this Cognac, only 4500 were produced - meaning those lucky enough to own a bottle are in for a real treat.

Throughout the 18th century and a good part of the 19th century the international trade of Cognac was made by boat, whereby oak barrels left their cellars in France for months of navigation to their destinations. At the end of the century, the introduction of glass bottles and specific rules of the AOC, gave rise to a completely new method of Cognac production giving way to localised Cognac houses centred in France.

Camus is a Cognac house that takes pride in embracing traditional strengths whilst remaining at the forefront of science in striving to reach new levels of intensity in the aromas of their Cognacs. The house has been independently operating since 1863 and have succeeded in upholding strong family values across five generations - all in quest of producing the utmost refinement when it comes to their Cognacs.

Presentation of the decanter:

Featured in a cylinder bottle, Caribbean Expedition offers a label with visuals inspired by the two sites emblematic to which this Cognac is linked: France, via the port of La Rochelle and Barbados, via the port of Bridgetown. The stunning illustration is a piece of artwork in itself and is underlined by an elegant golden thread which makes the entire label shine. Accompanied by a premium cardboard case, this Cognac serves as an exclusive gift for those who enjoy the finer things in life.

How to enjoy

Having found its alcohol content naturally over time, Camus Caribbean Expedition Cognac contains unparalleled elegance and infinite depth that should be enjoyed one sip at a time. Drink neat from a tulip glass, as the narrow top of this type of glass will delicately distribute the arrival of aromas during the tasting.

About Camus Cognac

Since 1863, five generations of the Camus family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. Laid across 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - the Borderies - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the people who live on it that helps them craft superb Cognacs. Today, it is Cyril Camus who is the bearer of all family tradition and oversees the undisputed quality of Camus Cognac. Export development and product development remain at the top, with a passion for innovation. Cyril Camus has entirely modernized the Cognac house’s interiors, relying on a fresh new take on Cognac for the new century. Instead of leather, wood and velvet in shades of brown, he opts for light colors and a combination of tradition and modern design. d Korea, firmly establishing Camus as one of the five leading Cognac houses at the time.
