D'Aincourt Cognac Premier Cru… there will be only 100, no more.  

Maison D’Aincourt is located in the heart of the Cognac region, in Grande Champagne. They’re producing some of the finest eaux-de-vie in all the land. Cognac of this quality and age is more than rare, it is a treasure. Their Master Blender then works much like a master perfumer with his creations, carefully selecting and subtly uniting their oldest and rarest eaux-de-vie to reveal an aromatic harmony worthy of the crown. 

Once you see the varnished black decanter, you pause… something about this one is different. But the different is more than visual and more than tactile. Ultimately — thankfully — it is the Spirit inside the bottle that will speak to you, whispering something private and unique to each drinker. But it will only speak to a few… a rare and chosen few. Only 198 of bottles of this — some of the finest eaux-de-vie in the world — will be filled. 
 
At some point, saying that a Spirit is "extra old" loses its meaning. D’Aincourt Cognac Premier Cru is made from the finest Cognacs, some MORE than 70 years old. This is more than special, it is an occasion unto itself. It is a gift or indulgence worthy of the highest levels of recognition and celebration. Impressive? To say the least. Inspiring? Yes, without a doubt. Will it be yours? 

 
Did you know that on a warm spring Friday night, a small group of Flaviar Members flew to Paris for exclusive D'Aincourt Cognac tasting? Want to find out what happened there? Get a glimpse behind the scenes!

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).
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.
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.
D’Aincourt’s emblem recalls the French Empire insignia worn on their military uniforms.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
