33: Pierre Ferrand Double Cask Cognac

In a bid to mirror the “golden era” of Cognac, the expression has been aged first in traditional French oak Cognac casks and then in casks that once held Banyuls, a fortified wine produced and aged in the south of France since the 13th century.

The French oak Cognac has been matured for seven to 10 years in different ageing cellars – some dry and some humid.

This liquid is then blended with 20-year-old Cognac and placed in Banyuls casks, which are matured in humid cellars for a further year.
