When you've tasted success sitting on top of the world of Rap music, your appetite will undoubtedly lead you into the world of fine Spirits. Billionaire rapper's love for Cognac was already well-professed when D’USSE's Maître de Chai, Michel Casavecchia, surprised part-owner Jay-Z with the Cognac to celebrate his 50th birthday in 2019.

Now, this one-of-a-kind 1969 Anniversaire Limited Edition release is finally available to everyone with a taste for good Yak (and good music). It's a stellar Grande Champagne Cognac, bottled from a single barrel and matured in the centuries-old cellar of Château de Cognac. Rich notes of fresh walnut, hazelnut, and candied apple hit the nose, while the mouth reveals potent woody notes and a long finale of leather and cigar box.

Only 200 12-cut crystal diamond decanters were made available, packaged in a luxury leather box adorned with high-end accents and a booklet featuring a description of the unique liquid by its creator.

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.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
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.
The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 90% of their production.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
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.
