Chollet XO Cognac
The Chollet XO Cognac is a delightful blend of eaux-de-vie that showcases all that is great about artisan producers. Blending eaux-de-vie from across the Cognac region, it offers a light, woody aroma and an ultra-smooth tasting experience. In fact, it's the perfect Cognac if you're looking for one to serve at any type of occasion. Whether it’s to bring out at the end of an indulgent meal with guests or simply to enjoy as a nightcap in solitude, it’s a versatile offering that is sure to impress.
The history of the house of Chollet is a reasonably young one, when compared with other ancestral distillers in the local Cognac area, however, this doesn’t make it any less credible. Born in 1971, Jeannine and Jacques Chollet set up their own distillery after years of hard work and dedication to secure themselves on their farm in Boutiers St-Trojan. Ever since the business has excelled and expanded - and now stands proud with the founder’s two sons Bertrand and Christophe in charge of the Collet Cognac and its future developments.
