Renault Avec Cognac
Renault Avec Cognac is an innovative product created by cellar master, David Croizet. Thanks to one of their biggest markets, the Nordic countries, where drinking coffee with Cognac is somewhat the norm, he decided to create a Cognac specifically designed for the purpose Cognac - “Avec”.
A blend of Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, and Fins Bois, Renault Avec is made from eaux-de-vie aged between three to eight years. Technically this makes it a VS, however, there is a deliberate no age specification stated on the bottle. The Cognac is one that’s very soft and smooth, especially considering it’s a blend of comparatively young Cognacs. A great choice for anyone who wants to pair their coffee with a perfect tasting Cognac.
The Renault Cognac story dates all the way back to 1835 when Jean Antonin Renault, a 25-year-old Charentais businessman created the brand in the town of Cognac. He appreciated great quality and was the first to ship his Cognac in glass bottles to guarantee that it kept its delicate flavor and original taste. As a great voyager, he sold Cognac on his travels to Germany, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Iceland, the Americas and Asia. Today the Renault Cognac is under new ownership and produces both Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne Cognacs.
