Description

Pitaud VS Cognac: a Century of Knowledge

The Pitaud VS Cognac is a flagship blend featuring a characteristic balance between exceptional finesse and remarkable smoothness. Comprised of young eaux-de-vie aged for a minimum of four years, with the addition of a drop of century-old Cognac, this release combines a range of crus but featuring predominantly Petite Champagne and Borderies to lend great richness and finesse. The grape variety is Ugni Blanc, characterized by high acidity and a low degree of alcohol, making it perfect for distillation. 

Born in 1882, Albert Pitaud was the owner of La Garnerie, an estate and Cognac house in the Petite Champagne region. Here, he lovingly created eaux-de-vie of renowned quality until World War One, when he was called into military service for his country. He decided to hide away his casks while he was absent, and returned to find them still in place. These casks remained part of his collection, and when Albert passed away in 1968 he passed on his legacy, including Cognac dating back to 1914.

Today, Pitaud Cognac is renowned for producing exceptional cognacs ranging from VS upwards. Each Cognac created by the House of Pitaud has at least one symbolical drop of what is known as ‘Cognac Albert Pitaud,’ the house’s premier product dating from around 1914, which makes it over 100 years old. Sought out by both amateurs and connoisseurs throughout the world, Cognac Pitaud is particularly well known in Germany, USA, Russia, China and Italy. Whilst their traditions and Cognacs remain faithful to tradition, the company itself is forward-thinking and embraces the very latest in modern technology.

Presentation of the bottle

The bottle is both masculine and elegant at the same time, featuring a heavy base and distinctive label. In comes in an individual case with a booklet detailing the history of Albert Pitaud.

How to Best Enjoy Pitaud VS Cognac

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