Description

From Cognac to Cape Town: KWV Héritage XO Cognac

KWV Héritage XO Cognac is the first and only XO Cognac produced under a South African brand name. In proud partnership with the French House of Charpentier, this Cognac represents the combination of modern craftsmanship and time-honoured tradition. An exceptional blend of the finest Extra Old Cognacs from the Petite Champagne region in France, the eaux-de-vie used for this XO blend have been aged for between 12 and 30 years, significantly longer than required by law. 

Pieter de Bod, Master Distiller at KWV, has 25 years in the spirits business and his palate has earned him a seat at many international tasting panels. Between his modern outlook and the traditional methods employed at Charpentier, KWV has created a Cognac of outstanding depth and complexity. Truly a marker of heritage, indeed.

  • International Wine and Spirits Competition 2019 - Silver Medal
  • International Spirits Challenge 2017 - Silver Medal
  • International Spirits Challenge 2016 - Bronze Medal

Presentation of the Bottle

Featuring a square decanter shape with a large stopper and gold lettering on the glass, the bottle exudes luxury. The golden silk bow around the neck of the bottle and the cream-colored box makes this a wonderful Cognac to give as a gift. 

How to Enjoy KWV Héritage XO Cognac 

To enjoy this finely crafted Cognac at its best, serve as a digestif in tulip glasses at room temperature. It’s also the perfect accompaniment to desserts or a cigar.
