This Courvoisier is a 21 years old Vintage Cognac. Courvoisier 21 is a new product from the famous Cognac house. The eaux-de-vie used for this Cognac come from the Grande Champagne region, the cognac was aged in the company's warehouses for over two decades in fine grain oak casks. The Connoisseur Collection is a special one: As Cognac has not been able to declare age statement because of BNIC restrictions (tracking, certification), Courvoisier had the smart idea to develop an in-house tracking system over 20 years ago to allow decleration of age on specific eaux-de-vie. That makes Courvoisier the absolute firstmover of the big 4 producers. Other producers market their cognacs with rough estimates regarding age of cognac, which can vary. This strategic move will probably allow Courvoisier to make their Cognac more transparent, easier to understand and will appeal to other spirits consumers, such as Malt Whisky drinkers. This Cognac is a good digestif after a heavy meal.

About Courvoisier Cognac
Courvoisier is amongst the four leading Cognac houses in the world - also known as the 'Big Four'. Legend has it that the emperor Napoléon himself chose Courvoisier as his preferred Cognac, therefore Courvoisier brandy is often referred to as “The Cognac of Napoleon”. The company dates back to 1828 and since has its headquarters in the town of Jarnac. With prestigious bottles such as Courvoisier Napoléon or Josephine, the Cognac house is at the top of the luxury spirits market. The Courvoisier VS, VSOP, and Rose Liqueur are also very popular. The drink is strongly ingrained in US Hip Hop culture with Busta Rhymes and P Diddy dedicating the song “Pass the Courvoisier” to the traditional brand.
