Description

Camus XO Borderies Family Reserve Cognac

The Camus XO Borderies Family Reserve Cognac is a single estate delight created from eaux-de-vie grown in the Borderies terroir. The Camus family ensures that the vineyards are cultivated in a sustainable and ecologically sensitive manner, in order to preserve the environment and wildlife. Each barrel is unique with eaux-de-vie from each section of the vineyards and is both distilled and aged in separate casks. Through the aging process of at least 10 years, Camus keeps each eau-de-vie separate without blending them. This allows the Cellar Master to carefully fuse the eaux-de-vie, with the final result: this intensely aromatic, Single-Estate XO Cognac.

The house of Camus has been independently operating since 1863 and has succeeded in upholding strong family values across five generations - all in quest of producing the utmost refinement when it comes to the production of Cognac. Today Cyril Camus is the guardian of this rich heritage, maintaining the ancestral commitment to excellence and affirming the distinctive style of Camus Cognac.

Presentation of the bottle

The presentation of this Borderies XO is both elegant and eye-catching. Displayed in a decanter style bottle, with accompanying presentation box - it makes the perfect gift for a discerning Cognac drinker, or anyone who appreciates fine liquor for that matter. Bronzed golden accents finish off the bottle beautifully and allow it to stand as a stunning table center-piece when entertaining guests.

How to enjoy

A Cognac of such splendour should be appreciated on its own - neat. Pour into a tulip glass and enjoy how the sumptuous flavors evolve and develop beneath the senses. Add a couple of ice cubes or a drop of mineral water to let the blissful aromas extend even further.

About Camus Cognac

Since 1863, five generations of the Camus family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. Laid across 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - the Borderies - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the people who live on it that helps them craft superb Cognacs. Today, it is Cyril Camus who is the bearer of all family tradition and oversees the undisputed quality of Camus Cognac. Export development and product development remain at the top, with a passion for innovation. Cyril Camus has entirely modernized the Cognac house’s interiors, relying on a fresh new take on Cognac for the new century. Instead of leather, wood and velvet in shades of brown, he opts for light colors and a combination of tradition and modern design.
