Lidl Bredon XO Cognac - The Most Controversial Cognac?

A simply stunning blend of eaux-de-vie created by none other than the house of Louis Royer, the Bredon XO Cognac has remained relatively unknown, resting under the radar until recently.

This exemplary XO hit the headlines when cut-price supermarket chain Lidl added it to their repertoire as one of their "prestige products"... for less than €20! Causing quite the controversy in France, the Cognac community were furious at the fact a Cognac of this age and quality was being sold at such a low price, however, I'm sure Lidl customers disagreed!

Even France’s Economy Minister got involved, making this scandalous yet smooth XO a national celebrity across Europe. Aged for at least 6 years, this XO is rich and holds an extensive depth of flavor, smooth on the palate and easy to sip as a divine digestif.

If you’re a Cognac connoisseur, this XO is surely a one to try and talk about with your friends and fellow Cognac fans. 

How to Serve

If you manage to get your hands on a bottle of Bredon XO Cognac before they’re all swiped off the shelves, make sure to drink it neat in a traditional tulip glass.

Despite it’s low price tag, this Cognac is a superior standard XO and should be treated like any other in your collection!

Presentation of the Bottle

This beautiful XO is presented in a decanteresque bottle, with brown and gold embellishment complementing the burnt orange color of the Cognac itself. The bottle equally comes with an elegant cardboard presentation box, for gifting or storage purposes.

Nectar of the gods

This cognac is absolutely nectar of the gods: rich, deep, dry and oh, so smooth. It bears its 40% like a lady; with gentleness and poise. Lidl was selling it in a 70cl bottle for the sort of price that makes one think there have been some mistake. My partner immediately bought one and announced after supper that he had found something special. It was so delicious that we quickly realised we would need more. But when we returned to purchase another bottle - or a couple - it was gone, and staff could not say whether they would have any more. Tesco is currently selling am own-brand cognac in a 50cl bottle closely similar to the Bredon one, but the price, alas, is as you would expect.
