Description

Meukow VS 90 Cognac

The Meukow VS 90 Cognac is presented at a slightly higher strength (45%), making it ideal for many different situations. Although it's technically classed as a VS blend, it has been aged for well over the amount of time you'd generally expect for a Cognac of this quality. This is a great ingredient for a range of mixed drinks and cocktails, bringing unmistakable power and aromatic persistence.

The House of Meukow was founded by two brothers from Silesia, August-Christophe and Gustav Meukow, and is today one of the few Russian Cognac brands in the Charente region. Initially sent to source Cognac for Tsar Alexander II in 1850, the brothers travelled back and forth for years in their search for the most prestigious casks. Seeing an opportunity to start up business for themselves, in 1862 they decided to remain in France and opened their distillery. The company grew rapidly, managed under the influence of prestigious shareholders like Henri Bouraud, the Mayor of Cognac from 1849 to 1869. Today, Meukow Cognac is distributed in over 80 countries around the world. 

Presentation of the Bottle

Presented in the classic rounded Meukow bottle with a pouncing panther motif molded onto the glass, this edition is matte black with a crystal clear glass panther giving a glimpse of the bronze-colored liquid inside. Due to its distinctive design, the brand is sometimes referred to as the ‘jaguar spirit’.

How to Enjoy Meukow VS 90 Cognac

While this is a great Cognac to enjoy on its own or with ice, it’s also perfect for a long drink with ginger ale. Simply pour 50ml of Meukow VS 90 Cognac over ice in a tall glass, top with ginger ale and garnish with a thin slice of orange.

About Meukow Cognac

As the name suggests, Cognac Meukow is one of the few Russian Cognac brands in the Charente region. In 1862 two brothers were sent over to France to supply the Tsar with Cognac and decided to start their own Cognac distillery.

The brand has become known as the “jaguar liquor”, or the “panther liquor”, thanks to its distinctive bottle design. The big cat in question is in fact a puma, and today, with its famous logo, ranks among the most well-known Cognac brands in the world. Its qualities are strength, elegance, sensuality and exotism, the character traits of the puma.

The distillery is housed in Matha in the Charente Maritime, and are particularly celebrated for their VS Cognac, Vanilla Cognac liqueur and 90-Proof Liquor among many others.
