Description

A Double Gold award-winning VS Cognac

Ever since their Cognac won prizes at the 1905 Universal Exposition in Lieges, Belgium, this Cognac house have continued to produce award winning Cognacs such as the Gilbert VS Cognac, that cinched a double gold in 2019.

Stylistically inspired by the art nouveau of Gilbert’s golden age, Cellar Master François Gilbert presents us with a fine Very Special Cognac that has been aged for at least 2 years in French oak casks, and is the perfect option for cocktails and long drinks.

The vineyard is located in Rétaud, an area that straddles the Fins Bois and Bons Bois crus. The fine limestone quality of the soil has caught the attention of critics since the Cognac maison was born in 1885, and today continues to produce incredible Cognacs such as the VS.

Founded by Séverin Gilbert at the end of the 18th century, his great-grandson now revives his legacy “through the eaux-de-vie from singular terroirs, expressing refinement and elegance." - François Gilbert, 2018.

Cognac Gilbert VS Bottle

Proofed and bottled at 40% ABV, we adore the classic Cognac tasting bottle design with a contemporary twist. It is graphically inspired by art nouveau print that was popular around the time founder Séverin Gilbert took his Cognac to the World Fair in Belgium.

How to serve the Cognac VS Gilbert

This Cognac goes down a treat with grapefruit juice-based cocktails. Get creative.

About Gilbert Cognac

Having tended to vines since the end of the 18th century in Rétaud, Séverin was the first of the Gilbert family to create a Cognac in his own name in 1885.

The terroir of Rétaud is on the border of the Bons Bois and Fins Bois terroirs, and has always been known for the quality of its eaux-de-vie. The limestone content of the soil of Rétaud meant that Cognac Gilbert was awarded at the Universal Exhibition of Liège, Belgium in 1905.

Today, the family tradition is upheld through François Gilbert, the great-grandson of Séverin, who selects and assembles eaux-de-vie to make award-winning blends from singular terroirs.
