Raymond Ragnaud VS Sélection Cognac
Raymond Ragnaud VS Selection Cognac is a young yet sophisticated Cognac worthy of its place in a Cognac collection. Offering exceedingly good value for money, it is the perfect place to start when exploring the world of Cognac for the first time. As with pretty much all of Raymond Ragnaud's Cognacs, this blend is made up solely of Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie. A fine representation of exactly why this is the premier growing region in all of Cognac.
Faithful to the family secrets at the heart of their craft, today Francoise Ragnuad-Brick and her daughter Stephanie, front the house of Raymond Ragnaud as one of the few female led brands to exist in Cognac. Passing down 4 generations of artisanal skills and essential savoir-faire, today the range of premium quality Premier Cru Cognacs pays homage to when the brand first started back in the mid-1800s. With an international reputation and high quality Cognacs at the forefront of production, Maison Raymond Ragnaud is an admirable family-run business worth knowing about.
Presentation of the bottle
With presentation in keeping with tradition, Raymond Ragnaud VS Selection embodies the brand's core values of remaining humble to its roots. The color combination of turquoise and cream brings the classic design to life with pure elegance and a delicate touch. Arriving with a matching presentation box, it makes an exquisite gift for someone keen on keeping their spirits collection well-stocked.
How to enjoy
A versatile and vibrant Cognac, VS Selection Cognac can be enjoyed neat in all its feisty glory - yet surprisingly smooth considering its youthful 4 years of aging. Or why not try on the rocks, or with a mixer. It's also great as the base ingredient in cocktails.
