Description

Baron Otard XO Gold Precious Edition Cognac

Baron Otard XO Gold Precious Edition Cognac is a blissful XO blend that spent decades maturing in the dim cellars of the Baron Otard chateau. With its harmonious aromatic profile that boasts woody nuances with hints of leather alongside a smooth and fruity palate, it is a Cognac of great distinction.

The history of Baron Otard Cognac dates back to 1795, when Jean-Baptise Antoine Otard, grandson of the Scottish Baron James Otard, had returned to France from his exile in England. Jean-Baptise came from a family of winemakers and was rumoured to have developed his own Cognac in exile which he took with him to his hometown in France. Upon his return, he was able to purchase the Royal Chateau in Cognac at auction, saving it from demolition. Here, behind dense stone walls and with a humid microclimate provided by the River Charente, Jean-Baptise launched his own Cognac company, then known as Maison Otard. Today the Chateau is a tourist attraction, but still houses the casks of eau-de-vie, used in the curation of Baron Otard Cognac.

Presentation of the bottle

An emblem of luxury, the golden teardrop decanter is protected in a bespoke presentation box. Attention to detail and the elegant finishing touches are what make the presentation of this Cognac so precious.

How to enjoy

Precious XO Cognac deserves your utmost attention: pour gently into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds, sip slowly and let this one of a kind Cognac do the talking. For a slightly different tasting experience, add a small dash of mineral water to allow the aromas to open up even further. Try serving it as a digestive as it is a pleasant Cognac to taste at the end of a meal with a cigar.

About Otard Cognac

With an ancient tradition tracing back to the Middle Ages, and to the great Norwegian Viking Ottar, this Cognac dynasty has an incredibly unique history. Around the same period, the iconic Chateau de Cognac was built on the banks of the Charente, and was largely associated with the French monarchy. Eventually, the two histories would merge with the arrival of the Cognac Maison Otard, founded in 1795. Today, the Chateau is the home of Baron Otard Cognac, who are amongst the most recognized in quality. The elegant teardrop bottles are a beautiful symbol for the simultaneously traditional and modern values of Cognac Otard.
