Cognac fans and novices alike will be able to explore two XO expressions from the Delamain brand: Delamain Cognac Pale & Dry Centenaire, and Delamain Cognac Pléiaide Revelation Collection Bonneuil.
Bottled at 42% ABV, Delamain Cognac Pale & Dry Centenaire comes in two formats, a 200ml bottle and a 500ml bottle, which retail for £30 (US$40) and £90 (US$123) respectively.
Delamain Cognac Pléiaide Revelation Collection Bonneuil sits at 45% ABV and costs £320 (US$436) per bottle.
The Delamain Cognac house is managed today by ninth-generation family member Charles Braastad, who works with cellar master Dominique Touteau to continue the Cognac brand’s legacy.
