Cognac is a wine-based spirit solely produced in the Cognac area of France. To be considered Cognac, it must be made from white grapes from one or more of 6 approved growing regions. Cognac must go through a double distillation process and the liquid that results from the distillation is called eau-de-vie (translates to “water of life”). Cognac must be aged at least 2 years in French Oak Casks and can be a minimum of 80 proof by volume.
D'Usse Cognac is masterfully crafted at the prestigious Chateau de Cognac, one of the oldest cognac houses in France. It has a 200-year legacy in blending some of the world’s finest spirits. The Chateau's proximity to the River Charente results in two climates within its walls: a humid cellar that results in fruity, floral notes, and a dry cellar that brings out the woody, spicy flavors of the cognac. Blending the two eaux-de-vie results in the boldness of character in D'Usse Cognac.
