Courvoisier Master's Cask Collection Sherry Cask Finish Cognac
Growth area & soil: Blend
An innovative product, Courvoisier Master's Cask Collection Sherry Cask Finish is the first expression of so called 'double barrel aging' to be released by one of the large Cognac houses. As the name suggests, the aging process is finished off in barrels that have previously been used to age Sherry - Pedro Ximénez Sherry, to be exact.
This has led to a unique tasting Cognac - one that will also appeal to malt whisky drinkers, as well as fans of Cognac. It's a VS quality, with the comonents making up the blend having been aged for between 2 1/2 to 8 years. They're then transferred to the PX Sherry barrels for a minimum of 4 months.
The result os a Cognac that has wide-ranging appeal. The younger generation will appreciate this very different take on a traditional Cognac. And it also lends itself as a great choice in cocktails.
About Courvoisier Cognac
Courvoisier is amongst the four leading Cognac houses in the world - also known as the 'Big Four'. Legend has it that the emperor Napoléon himself chose Courvoisier as his preferred Cognac, therefore Courvoisier brandy is often referred to as “The Cognac of Napoleon”. The company dates back to 1828 and since has its headquarters in the town of Jarnac. With prestigious bottles such as Courvoisier Napoléon or Josephine, the Cognac house is at the top of the luxury spirits market. The Courvoisier VS, VSOP, and Rose Liqueur are also very popular. The drink is strongly ingrained in US Hip Hop culture with Busta Rhymes and P Diddy dedicating the song “Pass the Courvoisier” to the traditional brand.
