Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
Bourgoin Raisin Cognac is a delicious handcrafted eaux-de-vie made exclusively from Ugni Blanc grapes of the Fins Bois terroir, that boast hints of nectarine, clingstone nectarine and peach. The grapes are pressed as whole bunches and the grape juice is then made into completely natural wine, meaning there are no added sulphites and the reduction process uses local spring water. The house of Bourgoin is known for its passionate craftsmanship, emotion and pride that quite clearly goes into making such a unique and diverse range of Cognacs - the Bourgoin Raisin Cognac is the perfect place to start if you are new to Cognac or this brand in particular.

How to enjoy
Sip and savour Bourgoin Raisin Cognac from a tulip glass, at room temperature, as the narrow top of this type of glass will delicately distribute the arrival of aromas during the tasting.

Similarly it can be added to cocktails as the aromas contrast well with other sweet ingredients.
