Landy XO No. 1 Cognac: Bold as Brass
The Landy XO No. 1 Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois, aged for a minimum of ten years. Presented in an unforgettable decanter, this XO expression is certainly one that will appeal to both the connoisseur and those new to the Cognac experience.
Part of the larger company Cognac Ferrand, Landy was founded in 1989 as a collaboration between Alexandre Gabriel and a family of traditional winegrowers in the Charente. Cognac Landy was created with the philosophy of bringing a breath of fresh air into the industry but also respecting traditional methods; for this reason, it is produced in the age-old fashion without the use of mass-production techniques. By selecting only the best grapes, distilling with care and blending distinct eaux-de-vie from some of Cognac’s finest regions, each bottle ends up being a true expression of the land it came from.

How to Enjoy Landy XO No. 1 Cognac
Pour into a tulip glass and allow the Cognac to rest for a moment before taking a sip; this will allow the most complex aromas to develop for a fuller tasting experience. For an added element of luxury, enjoy alongside a cigar or an espresso after dinner.
