Unlocking the Secrets of Cognac

Unlocking the Secrets of Cognac

Cognac is ever-growing in popularity amongst the South African A-liters and Simba jumps at the chance to tour France and discover the complexities of making world-class cognac.

Not only does Simba get a chance to wander around the vineyards, he visits the distillery and tastes the oldest cognac there – a rare privilege! Join us as we take this fascinating tour of discovery.
 

More about Cognac:
Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy. It is produced in the wine-growing region surrounding the town from which it takes its name.

In order to bear the name Cognac, the production methods for the distilled brandy must meet specified legal requirements. It must be made from certain grapes; of these, Ugni Blanc, known locally as Saint-Emilion, is the most widely used variety today. It must be distilled twice in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Troncais. Most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement, because cognac matures in the same way as whiskies and wine when aged in a barrel.
