Birkedal Hartmann VSOP
Birkedal Hartmann VSOP is a blend of eaux-de-vie from four of the Cognac regions, Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Fins Bois and Borderies, giving it an intriguing complexity with a multitude of characteristics representative of each of the terroirs. Allowed to mature for between eight and ten years in Limousin oak barrels, this Cognac has a powerful and lasting finish, typical of its age.
Birkedal Hartmann was founded in 1887 by Halfdan Birkedal Hartmann, it rapidly gained success amongst French-British families who were established in Cognac and across the globe, particularly within North and South America. The House is still managed by the family today, four generations on, and has been the sole supplier of VSOP Cognacs to the House of Lords in England.

About Birkedal Hartmann Cognac
Birkedal Hartmann is a rare example of a successful cognac house that today collaborates with producers and master blenders rather than producing its own eaux-de-vie. This allows Birkedal Hartmann to focus on modern marketing and distribution strategies, as the production is entirely outsourced. This does not however imply that the tradition of the house, founded in the late 1800s, has been neglected. On the contrary: With its extremely smart marrying of traditional and contemporary culture, the cognac house Birkedal Hartmann managed to be amongst the first to launch a product with US celebrity rapper Ludacris. The cognac called CONJURE has shown to be a huge success in the US market, positioning Birkedal Hartmann as one of the most innovative cognac companies today.
