Presentation of the bottle
An immediate sense of tradition and history is evident at first glance. Designed with minimal color, gold font, and a black and white sketch of the Leyrat house, its old-style charm is evident through every inch of its display. Complementing the design of the 6 Year Cognac, it is displayed in the same essence, with its origins and year stamped boldly to offer a careful finish.
How to enjoy
Due to its delectably sweet opening, the 8 Years is best enjoyed on its own to appreciate its beautiful balance. Add a dash of water to allow the sweet aroma space to linger on the nose.
