Planat Overproof 65% Organic Cognac
Planat Overproof 65% Organic Cognac is an innovative product, standing proud as the first Overproof Cognac to be created. Produced in collaboration with Adam Caron, a bartender and manager of “Les Marquises bar and restaurant” in Bordeaux, this Cognac was curated with mixology in mind. With the creative support of Adam Caron, this blend is a distinguishing 65% cask strength Cognac boasting highly intense aromas. An innovative and unconventional bar Cognac with a unique aromatic concentration.
With a rich family history closely associated with the history of France, Abel Planat founded the brand in Cognac back in 1828. Renowned for the role he played in the town of Cognac’s development; during his tenure as mayor, he developed the town’s first public drinking water system. Then to follow in his father’s footsteps, Oscar Planat took the reins of the company and further burnished its international reputation. He was both a member of parliament and mayor of Cognac and he is still fondly remembered for having embellished the town with its gorgeous public park. Today the brand lives on with a range of Cognac delights targeted at both amateurs and professionals of mixology.
