Camus Instant of Intensity Very Special Cognac
Camus Instant of Intensity Very Special Cognac: Intensely Tropical
The eaux-de-vie used for the Camus Instant of Intensity Very Special Cognac have been uniquely distilled with the ‘intensity’ method at House of Camus, where they select the most aromatic litres of the heads during the second distillation. This Cognac has been distilled on the lees and aged for a minimum of two years in small fine-grained French oak barrels. Boasting an extremely high concentration in esters, it shows intense tropical fruit flavours complemented by florals and a hint of spice.
Since Jean-Baptise Camus founded his company in 1863, four generations have followed in his footsteps to turn this small winegrower into a world-renowned Cognac house of distinction. Their family-owned vineyards are part of a magnificent estate of 280 hectares (691 acres), located in the very heart of Cognac. Under Cyril Camus, fifth-generation director of Camus Cognac, the family remains passionate about responsible cultivation, allowing their fields to accumulate organic matter while preserving wildlife in the surrounding environment.
