A de Fussigny Pure Organic Cognac: The Essence of Purity and Taste
A de Fussigny Pure Organic Cognac is a certified organic Cognac, which means that from the very beginning, from vine to bottle, not a single artificial product has been used. No yeast or sulphur is added to the wines, no chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides are utilized during production, and the final bottling has absolutely no additives. The eaux-de-vie used in this young blend have mostly been sourced from the Fins Bois terroir and aged for a minimum of two years.
Fins Bois eaux-de-vie are characterised by soft floral grape notes which add complexity and body to blends, but with a structure which is often optimal at a young age. This organic VS Cognac ticks all the boxes to enjoy Fins Bois in its most exuberant form.
Located on the banks of the Charente river, the A de Fussigny estate's distillery and cellars date back to 1814, rich in a history of gabarres passing by on barges, transporting and trading the precious eaux-de-vie and wine that have made this region so famous. The 200-year-old cellars here allow the ageing process to take place in a stable humid environment, during which the Cognac can develop all the flavors and quality which represent the hallmarks of this brand.

How to Enjoy A de Fussigny Pure Organic Cognac
With a fine organic Cognac such as this, we recommend enjoying it neat or over ice to truly appreciate its purity. Alternatively, mix it up in an Apple Brandy Julep:
- 2 oz. A de Fussigny Pure Organic Cognac
- 1 oz. Apple Juice
- ½ oz. Sugar syrup
- 3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
- Handful of mint
- Crushed ice
Using a bar spoon, vigorously mix all ingredients in an old-fashioned glass or julep cup filled halfway with crushed ice. Top with more ice, garnish with a mint spring and serve with a straw.
