Description

A Tale of Two Brothers: Meukow VSOP Cognac

The multi-award-winning Meukow VSOP Superior Cognac is well worthy of its acclaim. The House of Meukow blends together vintages from all six cognac regions for their expressions, using casks aged a year longer than required to create this sumptuous VSOP. 

Adorned in some of the most prestigious competitions and tastings around the world, the incredible roundness of Meukow VSOP Cognac is thanks to the meticulous selection of eaux-de-vie within the blend. Rich, yet delicate tannins partner with delicious dried fruit aromas to make this a truly outstanding Cognac for the price.

Meukow was founded by two brothers from Silesia, August-Christophe and Gustav Meukow, and is today one of the few Russian Cognac brands in the Charente region. Initially sent to source Cognac for Tsar Alexander II in 1850, the brothers travelled back and forth for years in their search for the most prestigious casks. Seeing an opportunity to start up business for themselves, in 1862 they decided to remain in France and opened their distillery.

The company grew rapidly, managed under the influence of prestigious shareholders like Henri Bouraud, the Mayor of Cognac from 1849 to 1869. Today, Meukow Cognac is distributed in over 80 countries around the world. 

Presentation of the bottle

Presented in the classic rounded Meukow bottle with a pouncing panther motif molded onto the glass. Due to its distinctive design, the brand is sometimes referred to as the ‘jaguar spirit’.

How to enjoy Meukow VSOP Superior Cognac

This rich VSOP is best enjoyed as a digestif, or sipped slowly in front of a roaring fire. For a lighter flavour experience, drop in a block of ice or a splash of water.

About Meukow Cognac

As the name suggests, Cognac Meukow is one of the few Russian Cognac brands in the Charente region. In 1862 two brothers were sent over to France to supply the Tsar with Cognac and decided to start their own Cognac distillery.

The brand has become known as the “jaguar liquor”, or the “panther liquor”, thanks to its distinctive bottle design. The big cat in question is in fact a puma, and today, with its famous logo, ranks among the most well-known Cognac brands in the world. Its qualities are strength, elegance, sensuality and exotism, the character traits of the puma.

The distillery is housed in Matha in the Charente Maritime, and are particularly celebrated for their VS Cognac, Vanilla Cognac liqueur and 90-Proof Liquor among many others.
