Sophie & Max Sélection Nº 1 is the very first Limited Edition Cognac produced by Cognac Expert. Sophie & Max partnered with their neighbor, Cognac producer Jacques Petit, to create an exclusive 150 bottle edition of this beautiful bottle. Sélection Nº 1 is a remarkable extra old X.O. Cognac that has been aged in oak barrels for up to 25 years.
André Petit & Fils, the name of Jacques' Cognac house, is family-run to this day. Read all about our Limited Edition in our blog article.
Sélection Nº 1 is blended with eaux-de-vies from multiple growth areas–the premium Petite Champagne, the Fins Bois, and the Bons Bois–to create a particularly balanced and smooth taste with aromas of vanilla, oak, and dried fruit.
This is a wonderful Cognac to enjoy as a digestif after a festive holiday meal, or to accompany a decadent dessert. It is a tasteful gift that reflects elegance and understated chic.
Unfortunately we currently do not sell our Limited Edition in France.

We've known Jacques for years, and we've been loving his Cognacs since day 1. Jacques's X.O. Extra is one of my absolute favorites. It's extremely smooth to drink, and still offers a versatile range of aromas. I particularly enjoy the oakiness of the blend. It's perfect for a cozy winter day. Obviously I'm biased, but I really do believe that this Cognac is absolutely ravishing. And I love the contemporary bottle we designed : )
Obviously this is our own Cognac edition; so that's my clear disclaimer. I certainly like that our blend is from our neighbor, one of our longest friends in the cognac region and really authentic. We did several blind tastings to get where we wanted. Enjoy our first limited edition!
