Eye: Soft gold.

Nose: Delightful spring florals interspersed with apple and pear.

Palate: Peach, light oak and more florals, now combined with a touch of spice. Medium-length finish with a refreshing note of white pepper.

Description

Worldly and Versatile: The Charm of Courvoisier VS

The youngest expression made by the world-famous Cognac house, Courvoisier VS perfectly merges the classic with the modern. This VS comprises a blend of delicate, floral crus from the Fins Bois region with a balancing hand of robust Petite Champagne. They are all aged between three and seven years in Limousin oak which lends fine tannins to the final product.

From Napoleon Bonaparte to Vivienne Westwood and Busta Rhymes, Courvoisier has perfected the art of making friends in high places for 200 years. This is not merely a matter of image and marketing; despite being one of the ‘big four’ Cognac producers, Courvoisier remains dedicated to craft and quality, using only the four finest crus of the region and fine-grained French Limousin oak for their aging process. 

Presentation of the Courvoisier VS bottle

Courvoisier VS comes in a distinctive bell-shaped ‘Josephine’ bottle with their iconic Napoleon silhouette logo on the medallion and label. 

How to serve Courvoisier VS

As it contains a blend of more mature eaux-de-vie than other prominent VS bottlings, Courvoisier lends itself perfectly to both sipping and mixing. Fruit-forward and with less prominent citrus notes, it’s the perfect ingredient in spiced, long cocktails like the Horse's Neck:

  • 60ml Courvoisier VS
  • Ginger Ale
  • Long twist of lemon peel

Hold the lemon peel in a tall glass and slowly add the ice, allowing the twist to stretch from top to bottom. Add the Courvoisier and top with ginger ale.

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.
