Description

Savoir-faire and Sophistication: Delpech Fougerat VS Cognac

Using traditional "on the lees" distillation in Charentais copper stills, the Delpech Fougerat VS screams sophistication and savoir-faire. After spending at least 2 years delicately aging in oak barrels, the VS boasts surprisingly opulent aromas compared to others in its age category, its blend of Petite Champagne and Fins Bois eaux-de-vie produce a particularly floral bouquet with the luxurious aromas of juicy pear and fresh grapes, all rounded off with a fabulously fruity flavor profile on the palate.

Delpech Fougerat has a 100-hectare estate that stretches across the Petite Champagne and Fins Bois terroir, with a history dating back to 1777. The family-run business found fame thanks to the quality of the Cognacs they produce, but have equally moved into other spirit markets using various distillation methods, both experimental and traditional. 

This VS is particularly fruity and refreshing, yet still holds hints of oak and raisin to tantalize the palate and prove its 2-year traditional maturation process. Many mixologists have integrated the Delpech Fougerat VS into their recipe thanks to its versitility and subtle balance between floral and fruity flavors.

How to Enjoy:

The particular floral and fresh nature of this VS lends itself perfectly to any cocktails that playfully balance citrus with sweet. Why not mix it into a classic Sidecar?

Pour 2 fl. oz of Delpech Fougerat VS into a shaker with 1 fl. oz Cointreau orange liqueur and the juice of 1 freshly-squeezed lemon, add 1 fl. oz of sugar syrup if you prefer it a little sweeter. 

  • Add ice and shake well.
  • Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  • Add a twist of lemon zest to garnish. 
  • Optional: Run a lemon wedge around the rim of the glass and dip in dark muscovado sugar to offset the citrus with a hint of sweet.

Presentation of the Bottle:

This elegant and tall bottle is simple yet stylish in its design. Featuring a sketch of Delpeche Fougerat's Petite Champagne domain and the family's coat of arms, it’s clear history plays a big part in the estate's Cognac production.

About Delpech Fougerat Cognac

Cognac Delpech Fougerat has two separate domains in the heart of the Petite Champagne. With a history that can be traced back to 1777, the cognac house produces blends of all ages, and have cognacs in their cellars that date back to the beginning of the 1800s. Using the Folle Blanche, Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes, Delpech Fougerat, although relatively small in size, is enjoyed by consumers on all continents.

Led by the son of the Vinet-Delpech distillery, Jean-Baptiste, 'Les Brûleries Modernes' is a new collection of liquors to emerge almost 250 years after the family’s origins in the Cognac region. 

So why “brûlerie”? The word in French means the “act of burning,” and in fact dates all the way back to the fifteenth century of Cognac production. It was at this time that the distillation process was referred to as “burning” the eaux-de-vie at the heart of Les Brûleries Modernes in traditional Charentais pot stills.
