More Details:

Our newest discovery experience is an introduction to the best of the worlds of Cognac and Armagnac. Both of these wonderful and complex spirits are made in the southwest of France, one much more famous than the other.

We love both regions and both products and wanted to accomplish two things with the experience:

Introducing our members to the amazing, complex and varied world of high-end Armagnac, and, just as interestingly, introduce you to the world of small batch, artisan, grower Cognac. Cognac is one of the most recognizable spirits in the world, but despite its fame as a luxury French good, very little of it is actually drank in France, with 95% of production exported. On the contrary, most Armagnac is still consumed in the country. There are a few reasons for this, the main one being that Cognac is extremely commercialized and mass produced, and Armagnac is not. There are some other differences between the two, including Armagnac’s focus on vintage releases, its geographical and grape variety difference, and the use of continuous stills for distilling, but we have found the biggest factor in quality difference is related to the size of production and reliance on artisan methods. For this box we are featuring one very classic, old-school Armagnac producer, Château de Maniban, who has been making Armagnac for over 800 years! The bottle we will send you is an incredible example of the unique and deep flavour profile of Armagnac, introducing you to its excellence.

Your second bottle will be one of the very few examples of Cognac made on an artisan scale: Bourgoin Double Lie Cognac is made by a family producer, in small batches from wine grown by the distiller, an incredibly rare find for Cognac, and a very unique spirit. Along with a pair of Riedel Cognac glasses, we have packaged some food suggested by the producers as perfect for pairing, a selection of chocolate, and a savoury pairing of foie gras, perfect for an evening of sampling these two amazing products and getting to know the deeper side of French spirits!
