The Bourgoin Boisé de Fût Neuf is a distinct Cognac that doesn’t go unnoticed due to its dark, natural colouring, in fact, it may be the darkest Cognac on the market. Aged for a total of 24 months in Limousin oak barrels, the eaux-de-vie is transported every 8 months, therefore three times to a new barrel which ensures the tannins of the oak wood to provide a slight bitterness and pronounced aromas of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, liquorice, toffee, tobacco, coffee and leather to shine through. As Boisé de Fût Neuf is a rather young Cognac, it is appreciated most by bartenders and mixologists who enjoy experimenting with Cognac in cocktails.
The house of Bourgoin is a contemporary craft Cognac brand that dedicates its passion and expertise to cultivating the very best vines, through the most natural means possible. Offering a unique range of Cognac and non-Cognac products, this family-run business boasts a strong branding identity, which enables them to stand out from the crowd within the world of Cognac.
