What a winner
I tasted this some weeks ago at a tasting in Amsterdam, totally fell in love.. and now I realize how cheap it is compared to other french brandy. We don't have it here in the Netherlands but I just bought it here, fortunately it's available.
About La Guilde du Cognac
La Guilde du Cognac is not so much a Cognac house, rather it’s a way to bring a range of products to market that’ve been created by small, artisan producers of the region. It’s the creation of Maison Villevert, a house that boasts a history that can be traced back as far as 1487. The concept is about bringing the expertise of some of the most talented small producers to the notice of a larger global population: a population of Cognac connoiseurs who understand and cherish true quality when they taste it.
