The Courvoisier Artisan XO Ultime Cognac is the oldest in the 'Artisan' range by this premier cognac producer. Using both Grande Champagne and Borderies eaux-de-vie, the blend is aged using a three-fold process:
First the cognacs are aged in virgin limousin barrels, then transferred mature casks. To finish the process they are moved to ancient vats to produce an incredibly smooth, intense aromas and flavors.

About Courvoisier Cognac
Courvoisier is amongst the four leading Cognac houses in the world - also known as the 'Big Four'. Legend has it that the emperor Napoléon himself chose Courvoisier as his preferred Cognac, therefore Courvoisier brandy is often referred to as “The Cognac of Napoleon”. The company dates back to 1828 and since has its headquarters in the town of Jarnac. With prestigious bottles such as Courvoisier Napoléon or Josephine, the Cognac house is at the top of the luxury spirits market. The Courvoisier VS, VSOP, and Rose Liqueur are also very popular. The drink is strongly ingrained in US Hip Hop culture with Busta Rhymes and P Diddy dedicating the song “Pass the Courvoisier” to the traditional brand.
