A de Fussigny cognacs are beautifully elaborated in the company’s own distillery, founded in 1814 in the historical center of Cognac, France, on the banks of the Charente River. The river proximity creates a perfect hygrometry in the cellars and accordingly excellent aging conditions. The house hallmark is to combine traditional elaboration methods with a very modern and innovative packaging and brand image. The proximity to the river make for perfect hygrometry and allows the aromas of the to unfold. The product design is extremely different to that of traditional cognacs, the information on the cognac, such as age, name, percentage etc. is handwritten on the label, which makes it very personal.

Tasting review by Gourry de Chadeville:
On the nose - dried flours and cedar wood, also aromas of liquorice, spice, and black tea.
On the palate - round with notes of leather and wood. Vanilla and tobacco develop pleasantly to make a strong, character cognac.
Tesseron tasting notes: "An extremely appetising cognac, opulent, rounded, yet vivacious. Pepper & spices emerge initially before revealing dark chocolate and fresh herbs. Complex, it shows supreme finesse, supple opulence, and very good length. This is an exquisite Grande Champagne."
