Description

Instant of Intensity VSOP Cognac: a Double Gold Winner from Maison Camus

Featuring in its blend some of the finest eaux-de-vie from the Borderies cru, the Camus Instant of Intensity VSOP Cognac distinguishes itself for its high levels of terpenols, resulting in an intense aroma of flowers. The eaux-de-vie used for this blend have been uniquely distilled with the ‘intensity’ method at House of Camus, where they select the most aromatic litres of the heads during the second distillation. This expression has been aged for a minimum of four years, developing sweet vanilla notes and a rich amber color over time. 

Since Jean-Baptise Camus founded his company in 1863, four generations have followed in his footsteps to turn this small winegrower into a world-renowned Cognac house of distinction. Their family-owned vineyards are part of a magnificent estate of 280 hectares (691 acres), located in the very heart of Cognac. Under Cyril Camus, fifth-generation director of Camus Cognac, the family remains passionate about responsible cultivation, allowing their fields to accumulate organic matter while preserving wildlife in the surrounding environment.

Awards and Accolades

  • San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019: Double Gold Medal
  • Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2019: 93/100 points
Presentation of the Bottle

Camus Instant of Intensity VSOP Cognac comes in a carafe-shaped bottle with a flared neck and large black stopper. Each bottle prominently displays the words ‘Intensely Aromatic’ and, uniquely, the product description is on the front rather than the back label of the bottle and box.

How to Enjoy Camus Instant of Intensity VSOP Cognac

An excellent digestif, this Cognac is best enjoyed neat at room temperature or on the rocks. Its fruity and floral notes and perfect in stirred-down cocktails like the Corpse Reviver No.1, a classic pick-me-up cocktail from the 1920s:

  • 30ml Camus Instant of Intensity VSOP Cognac
  • 15ml Calvados
  • 15ml Sweet Vermouth
  • Long twist of orange peel

Stir together the first three ingredients with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the orange peel. Perfect to serve accompanied by some jazz music and dimmed lights!

About Camus Cognac

Since 1863, five generations of the Camus family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. Laid across 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - the Borderies - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the people who live on it that helps them craft superb Cognacs. Today, it is Cyril Camus who is the bearer of all family tradition and oversees the undisputed quality of Camus Cognac. Export development and product development remain at the top, with a passion for innovation. Cyril Camus has entirely modernized the Cognac house’s interiors, relying on a fresh new take on Cognac for the new century. Instead of leather, wood and velvet in shades of brown, he opts for light colors and a combination of tradition and modern design.
