A rich, floral, and fruit-forward Cognac made the old way.

Maison Surrenne is a collaboration between the wizards at Craft Distillers and the “largest remaining family-owned producer” of Cognac in France. We assume that there is a good reason for the secrecy. As we’ve said before, Craft Distillers works closely with a tight-knit group of industry veterans to mix and marry the products that they produce in their Distillerie Gatauld with other bits and pieces. To say that they have a long history of building successful products and brands is an understatement.

The Maison Surrenne Cognac line has nine offerings from four family distilleries, the primary one being on the bans of the Charente River in Jarnac, France — just a few miles East of the town of Cognac. But Maison Surrenne Cognac Borderies is not a blend and we can pinpoint it’s production to the Galtaud Distillery in the village of Mainxe. They have been making the finest Cognac in a single still at this historic landmark for well-over 200 years. This exceptional Cognac has been rated 96-100 points by Wine Enthusiast, was dubbed “Cognac of the Year” by Wine and Spirits magazine, and been awarded 5 Stars by the Spirit Journal.

Smartass Corner:
The “Borderies” is a specific region of Cognac production in Western France known for a fruit-forward style.

There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
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).
Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
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.
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.
