Nose: A Cognac that offers notes of ripe, juicy grapes which are complemented by hints of meadow flowers and notes of acacia tree blossom, alongside a bracing hint of cedar.

Palate: Warm with fruity flavors yet still very clean. The finish reveals the taste of honey and spices.

Pierre Ferrand 1840 Original Formula Cognac

Pierre Ferrand 1840 Original Formula is a revival of the Pierre Ferrand Classic 3 Star Cognac and is made up of eaux-de-vie produced from vines located at Angeac, Grande Champagne, the best planting region of the Cognac area. Distilled in the typical Alambic Charentais and aged in Limousin oak barrels, this Cognac is characteristic of its Premier Cru and reveals in harmony - floral fragrances, fruity flavors alongside delicate hints of spices.

Valuing innovation and a hands on approach, Maison Pierre Ferrand takes pride in bringing new life to ancient Cognac techniques and traditions through the sheer passion its team dedicates to creating quality Cognac products. From the vineyard to the bottle, the house of Pierre Ferrand brings forth the unique characteristics of Cognac, with the sole purpose of creating incomparable tasting experiences to be enjoyed with excitement and love.

Presentation of the bottle

Inspired by a Pinet Castillon Cognac from 1840, this blend embodies the traditional style of this old Cognac, while maintaining the contemporary brand image, in keeping with other Cognacs in the Pierre Ferrand range. With a long neck and a heavy base, its presentation is sure to stand proud alongside other spirits in a collection.

How to enjoy

Cognac is traditionally enjoyed neat or on the rocks. The bold character of 1840 Original Formula also allows this Cognac to be served as the base of different, refreshing cocktail recipes. The house of Pierre Ferrand recommends using this blend to mix up a alluringly fresh Mint Julip.

  • Recipe: 2.5 OZ Ferrand 1840 Original Formula
  • 0.5 OZ Simple Syrup
  • 15 Mint Leaves plus more to garnish

Method: Gently muddle the mint and syrup in the bottom of a julep cup. Add the Cognac and fill the glass with ice. Gently stir until the cup frosts over, then top up with a scoop of crushed ice and garnish with the leftover mint leaves.

About Pierre Ferrand Cognac

The estate of Cognac Pierre Ferrand is located directly in the ‘golden triangle’ of the Grande Champagne region of Cognac and is owned and run by Alexandre Gabriel. Specializing in old and very old cognacs, Pierre Ferrand is only bottled and shipped to order. They have also developed some unique production techniques of their own that are used in the aging and distillation process and have introduced innovative ways of collaborating with smaller scale producers. Both the vineyards and company headquarters are located in the 18th century Château de Bonbonnet at Ars, just 10 kms from the town center of Cognac itself.
