Undergoing a distinguished aging process, this is an opulent, complex and elegant Cognac, with an unmistakably memorable depth. An exceptional choice that embodies the excellence of Daniel Bouju expertly, it is certainly a Cognac you won’t forget in a hurry.
Committed to providing a diverse range of artisan Cognac, the small, family-run house of Daniel Bouju has a winemaking history that stretches back to the 19th century. Nestled amongst 14 hectares of vines in the heart of the famed Grande Champagne region, their expert blend of Eaux-de-vie is one to be cherished. Reputable for its unequaled Cognac creations, Daniel Bouju Royal Brut de Fut is guaranteed to be a choice that will linger in both the palate and the mind.
