First-class Cognac blend from French powerhouse.

Every part of the world has its own "water of life." For Scotland and Kentucky it's Whisky; for Russia it's Vodka; for Mad Max Australia, it's gasoline. But ask any French person and they'll tell you it's either Wine or Cognac. The Merlet & Fils Distillery from Saint-Sauvant in the Cognac region has been making Cognacs since 1850, when USA had only 30 states. In 1973, Gilles Merlet took over the distillery and his sons are the fifth generation distilling astounding Spirits. In 2010, after 160 years distilling for large Cognac houses, Merlet developed their own Cognac and since then, created numerous blockbusters. In addition to that, the distillery organizes its own cocktail competition in almost twenty countries.

Their Sélection Saint-Sauvant Cognac is one of the finest stocks and a wonderfully divine limited edition release. It's a blend of various premium Merlet Cognacs that have reached optimum maturity: 10 years old Petite Champagne, 10 years old Grande Champagne, Fins Bois 2001, Petite Champagne 1993, Fins Bois 1992, Borderies 1984, Petite Champagne 1971 and 1973, and Fins Bois 1948. This breathtaking blend is unique and is enjoyed neat - mixing it with anything else would be sacrilegious. Oh, we almost forgot: Saint Sauvant won double gold prize in San Francisco in 2016, and a golden medal by the Beverage Testing Institute.

Corner
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavour normally found only in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based spirits: Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of ageing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
