China’s widely reported clampdown on conspicuous spending among government and military officials greatly impacted the high-end Cognac market in 2013, with all but one of the top four brands reporting volume declines, and Courvoisier was even dropped off the top 10 best-selling Cognac and brandy brands list.

As France’s staple spirit suffered, its mainstream international counterpart, brandy, demonstrated a much more varied picture. While some brands experienced substantial declines in the year, success was also widespread as some labels retained their dominance in local emerging markets.

A large collection of Indian brands predictably make up this list, reporting huge volumes in the face of sporadic declines – thought by many to be the result of a growing favour for international brands.

Based on figures outlined in The Spirits Business Brands Champions 2014 – where the exceptional category performers are picked out from among the million case selling brands – we identify which are the most popular Cognac and brandy brands.

    Not a Cognac Moyet in sight

    Although not a brandy or cognac, Rum Don Q Gran Añejo is up there with the best. Aged 6-10 years is quite impressive. TRY IT! Very good comparing with Cardenal Mendoza and others.

    Felipe II is a sleeper. Just like most of the brands from Jerez
