A rare and singular experience in Cognac… a reward for living well.

In the world of Cognac there are a few names that rise above the rest. Delamain is one of those names.

James Delamain was born in Ireland in 1738 where his Huguenot family had fled during the French religious conflicts. James returned to France and apprenticed in Cognac production. In 1759 he partnered with his father-in-law to form Maison Delamain. When James died in 1800, the company fell apart. But his spirit carried on through his son-in-law, Thomas Hine, who famously founded Hine Cognac. Then, in 1924 his grandson Henri re-established the house, limiting production to exclusively the finest Hors d’Age Cognacs (old beyond age).

Delamain Très Vénérable is one of the singular experiences you can ever experience in Cognac. It is a blend of 100% Grand Cru Spirits with an average age of between forty-five and fifty years. This is the theoretical maximum age at which Cognac continues to improve. But there is more. This fine Cognac is brought to proof at 45% ABV without adding any water. Rather, Delamain allows the alcohol to gently, naturally evaporate until the remaining Spirit is at proof. Like a master chef reducing a sauce, this process concentrates flavors instead of diluting them. This is a reward for a life well-lived.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Garnet Gemstones

Nose / Aroma / Smell
More than aroma, the perfume is remarkably complex and floral with blooming spices, honey, anise, vanilla, and dried apricot.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor itself is old… deep and meaningful notes of delicate figs and sultanas open up to moist fruitcake and more anise and violets.

Finish
The finish is impossibly smooth and comforting like a fond memory.
