Character Goatson
A brilliant and approachable expression of Cognac to seduce the palate.

Maison Ferrand began as the farm and vineyards of Pierre Ferrand whose family had harvested grapes for ten generations. In 1989 to earn some extra money, Alexander Gabriel set about to contract his business-school education to help the struggling farm pull itself out. Pierre offered him a stake in the business and soon he bought out the entire operation. Since then he has not only thrived, but earned the respect of all the established Cognac houses in the region and expanded to include lines of Spirits from around the world, including Plantation Rum, Claude Chatelier Cognac, Citadelle Gin, and more.

Claude Chatelier VSOP Cognac is a "fine Champaign" Cognac. This means that all of the Spirit is derived from the two primary grape regions of Cognac — Grand and Petite Champaign. Aged for a minimum of four years, it has been said that this particular dram is one of the best examples of terroir expression in an approachable Cognac. We just think it is delicious with a lovely, soft mouth-feel. Even Wine Enthusiast has given it their Highest Recommendation and called it a "best buy."

Character Dogson
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, be twice distilled in copper pot stills, and be aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most Cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
There are three primary grades of Cognac recognized by law: V.S., V.S.O.P., and X.O, but we also know Napoléon, XXO, and Hors d'âge.
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
