Ferrand Cognac Selection Des Anges, a Heavenly Cognac from the Premier Cru
Ferrand Cognac has made a name for itself thanks to its exclusive use of Premier Cru terroir eaux-de-vie, the chalky soil of Grande Champagne is particularly famous for producing some of the highest quality Cognacs the region has to offer.
For the Ferrand family, now on their fifth generation of cellar master, blending is an art form and each Cognac is a masterpiece in its own right. This passion, combined with the high quality ingredients and traditional "on the lees" distillation process, creates something quite magical, heavenly even. It's no wonder that the Ferrand Selection des Anges Cognac has won so many awards.
Of course, when we talk about Angels in Cognac this is a reference to the ancient term "the Angels share", taken during the long maturation process as the Cognac slowly evaporates over time. As the Angels take their share, flavors are refined and intensified, creating a sublime sensory experience with a higher concentration of aromas the longer the Cognac ages.
This particular selection by Maison Ferrand has an average age of 30 years, meaning the Angels have had their fair share and what's left is a true treat for the senses that will please the palate of even the most discerning Cognac connoisseur.

How to Enjoy:
A 30-year-old Cognac like this should certainly be enjoyed neat, we recommend drinking it in a tulip tasting glass or traditional snifter, a drop of water will accentuate the floral flavors.
Presentation of the Bottle:
A traditional and timeless bottle featuring deep green colored detailing, the earthy color scheme perfectly complements the Cognac's deep mahogany color, and the classic cork stopper adds an authentic feel to this wonderful Grande Champagne selection. The bottle equally comes with a cardboard sleeve for gifting, presentation or storage purposes.
While my father introducing me to cognac may have started the embers smoldering Ferrand S.D.A. is what turned those embers into a roaring fire. My wife and I were out to dinner in Boston when I noticed they had cognac on the menu. they ranged in price from fairly reasonable to downright obscene....
High Quality And A Steal On Price
Maison Ferrand are known for pushing the boundaries and experimenting, but this expression shows that they also know how to keep it traditional, too. For a Cognac that's blended with 25-35 year old eau-de-vie, this shows rancio incredibly well and much better than other major brands in this same category....
Best cognac for under $200
Discovering and fine tuning your palate with respect to Cognacs as you at the same time match the exciting process with memories is indeed a fascinating venture. Here goes mine. Although rather fine tasting experiences, throughout the years none of the "commercial" brands (comparables under $200.00...
5 stars all the way
I purchased this bottle on this website and love it. Compared to other cognacs at the same price - you cannot even compare! The 30 years of oak barrel really make a difference, spectacular value for money. One of my favorites (i have about 30 bottles in my cabinet).
