More about the house of A de Fussigny Cognac
Uniquely located on the banks of the Charente River, in the very center of the town of Cognac, this small, craft house might seem young (it came into being in 1987), but is located in a distillery with a history that dates back to the early 19th century. It was during this time that Cognac was still only sold in barrels. But thanks to the wonderful location on the river, the large wooden doors of the house opened out onto the miraculous transport system that was offered by the innocuous waters of this mighty waterway.
In addition, the location of the houses cellars, so close to this aqua playground, meant that the barrels where the eau-de-vie was aged took full advantage of the microclimate on offer. This led to the creation of a wonderful, and unique, taste profile. Discover more about the delights of A de Fussigny Cognac in our blog article, Where Innovation Meets Tradition.

Got a sample from a friend to try, very good cognac.
Full bodied, lot of nuts and orange notes.
Very long finish, can still taste it on my tongue a good 4-5 minutes after finishing it.
Cognac aficionados will enjoy this one as a digestif or with a cigar.
