The delightful Merlet VSOP Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vie from four of the Cognac terroirs, with the majority hailing from the Fins Bois terroir. This has led to a very fruity base that blends effortlessly with those from Petite Champagne, that bring along a subtle complexity to the finished product.
This is a very versatile Cognac to own, and also represents excellent value for money. It can be enjoyed neat as a digestif, or - for the adventurous, on the rocks for a subtle different flavor explosion. In addition, it's a great choice to use as a base for your favorite cocktail. A great cabinet staple.

With a traceable history dating back to 1850, the Merlet family have continued to produce cognac, alongside a continually growing range of other products, to the current day. Headed today by Gilles Merlet, his sons Pierre and Luc joined the business a few years back, bringing with them a new generation of enthusiasm and direction. Although the house Distillerie Merlet & Fils originally produced eaux-de-vie for some of the most prestigious cognac houses in the world of cognac, they are now famous in their own right, not only for their quality cognacs, but for their innovative range of other products that sell around the globe.
