Giboin Borderies Vintage '74 Cognac
An award-winning, single year, natural cask-strength Cognac, Borderies 1974 is a delectable choice for a Cognac enthusiast looking to try “one of the world’s best Cognacs”. Undergoing a patient aging process, this Cognac is matured in oak wooden barrels until 2005, before being moved and stored demi-johns before ready to be bottled. Produced with eaux-de-vie from the Borderies region of Cognac: an area renowned for its chalky limestone soils. Boasting a harmonious contrast between sweet and spicy, prevailing aromas of plum and fig set this Cognac apart from the rest. Its strong aromatic presence, that is both sensual and warm, leaves a lasting impression beneath hints of blond tobacco and under-wood.
With hundreds of years worth of expertise under their belt, it’s safe to say the close-knit family running Maison Giboin know a thing or two about Cognac. Based in both the Borderies and Fins bois crus, Giboin are artisanal masters in the creation of quality products characteristic of the region and subsoil. Offering a variety of unique Cognacs and Pineau de Charentes, the house of Giboin is a notable brand that deserves a firm place in any Cognac collection.
Presentation of the bottle
Displayed in a traditional style decanter, the Cognac’s rich history reflects its chosen presentation with sophistication. In keeping with the rest of the Cognacs traditional demeanour, the bottle is stamped with the Giboin brand label detailing the products single vintage year and cru. The perfect gift for a Cognac for a true Cognac aficionado to enjoy in the mark of a special occasion.

About Giboin Cognac
Giboin is an expert producer of both Cognac and Pineau de Charentes, with 60 acres (24 hectars) of vineyards in both the Borderies and Fins Bois Cognac growing areas of the Charente. This family run, traditional brand has a history stretching back to the early part of the nineteenth century, and exclusively produces a very limited amount of Cognac per year. Using predominantly Ugni Blanc grapes, but Merlot too, Giboin strives to remain committed to the methods used by the family’s founders, and for a small house curates a surprisingly versatile and wide range of Cognac and Pineau products.
