Prunier Rare Vintage 1988 Grande Champagne Cognac
A spectacularly unique single year blend, Prunier Rare Vintage 1988 Grande Champagne Cognac that has been aged via the original method of allowing the eaux-de-vie to age in new oak casks stored in a very humid cellar for the first 15 years of the maturation process. Then later, moved to mature in old casks in a much drier cellar in order to preserve all of the wonderful Grande Champagne (premier cru) aromas. With dominating notes of dried fruits, this Cognac offers a superb and long after-taste, leaving a long-lasting impression on those lucky enough to taste it.

Let the Cognac do the talking and enjoy neat or with a splash of water. Alternatively, if you are a more experimental cognac drinker - the Cognac cocktail is an exciting way to experience the flavours of an eaux-de-vie in a different light. Mixing a vintage Cognac with an Old Fashioned (brandy, sugar, bitters and ice) for example, creates a cocktail that is rich and full of flavour that can be drunk alone as a digestif after eating.
About Prunier Cognac
Steeped in tradition, Cognac Prunier is a family run firm with cellars in the heart of the town of Cognac. The house does not own its own vineyards, instead, they buy the eaux-de-vie directly from supplying vine growers and distillers each year, and then carry out the ageing process in their own cellars.
