"Very Special" is the youngest cognac in our range. A blend of several crus, it is double distilled and aged in French oak casks.
Lively and fruity, it reveals pear and leather notes on the nose.
It is a direct descendant of La Rochelle ‘Brand-Wijn’ (Burnt-Wine), which was already shipped by Bonaventure Godet on his galleon in the 16th Century. This VS epitomises the inventive side of the first cognac distillers who literally burnt their wines to preserve its quality. They discovered that this eau-de-vie, once in oak barrel, greatly improved as time passed. These were the beginnings of the story of Cognac.
