Description

Braastad Cognac XO Fine Champagne - Refined and complex eaux-de-vie

A fantastic Fine Champagne blend (at least 50% from Grande Champagne), demonstrating the most superior qualities of both the Grande and Petite Champagne region, the Braastard XO Fine Champagne is a complex Cognac cultivated from the two premier crus.

A wonderfully spicy XO with astounding aromas of fresh fruit, the Cognac has been aged between 15 to 20 years, resulting in a sensory explosion with a luxuriously lengthy finish.

According to the master blenders at Braastad, this Cognac delivers a developed nose of leather and truffles. On the palate, notes of violet and vanilla are dominant, two key flavors that often are present in a Fine Champagne blend. These floral aromas are balanced by harmonies of hazelnut, creating a unique and pleasant drinking experience where sweet meets spicy and floral meets earthy.

Braastad XO Awards

This exquisite Extra Old Cognac from the masters at Braastad has taken home several awards at both the IWSC and the International Spirits Challenge, a true testament to its complex and vibrant flavors - appreciated by those professional and domestic Cognac connoisseurs alike.

How to Enjoy

This stand-alone Cognac is ideally drunk neat, preferably in a traditional tulip glass or snifter. It also makes the perfect accompaniment to a post-dinner cheese course.

Presentation of the Bottle

A square-based and sturdy bottle, atypical of your more traditional Fine Champagne Cognacs, the subtleties of the design come from the elegant images of the estate perfectly placed on the bottle’s label, a symbol of tradition and savoir-faire.

About Braastad Cognac

In the heart of Grande Champagne in the village of Jarnac lies the impressive Chateau de Triac. The chateau is the home of Cognac Tiffon, to which the Cognac brand Braastad belongs.

Rubbing shoulders with other famous Cognac houses such as Bisquit or Courvoisier, the brand Braastad was created when a Norwegian named Sverre Braastad married into the Tiffon family.

Known for their devotion to the traditional Cognac producing methods, today the whole process is still carried out at the family premises, and Cognac Braastad’s products are renowned worldwide.
