Braastad Cognac

Braastad XO Superior Contemporary Art 2 is a specially designed limited edition bottle containing Braastad's XO Superior Cognac.  This designer bottle was created in collaboration with Snøhetta and the Norweigan musician and artist, Magne Furuholmen.  This peice of art employs a design and color scheme rarely associated with such a beverage.  The pair's aim was to create a contemporary expression that strengthened the Braastad brand.

Braastad XO Contemporary challenges artists to create a visual expression of what inspires them from the world for Cognac. The craftsmanship and heritage of the Norwegian Braastad family in the historic business of Cognac production inspired Furuholmen’s art piece. Based on two limited edition prints made especially for this project, the letters used in the design make up the words “XO” and “Contemporary”. Snøhetta’s graphic designers worked with Furuholmen’s prints to re-imagine both the bottle and box into a playful and unique design, bringing a new expression to a traditional beverage.

The cognac within this wonderful bottle is one created by Master Blender, Richard Braastad.  A complex blend, Richard handpicked very old cognacs from four of the six terroirs of Cognac. The result is a cognac that is very rich and powerful, yet harmonic and balanced.

The XO Superior first entered the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London 2007, and Master Blender Richard Braastad was proud to receive the silver medal
