The showhorse of House Merlet.  
 
Traditionally, the Merlet family were wine growers, supplying grapes to winemakers across the region. But in 1850, Firmin Merlet assembled the first pot still near the picturesque town of Saint Sauvant, and started transforming their surplus grape inventory into fine eau-de-vie for famous Cognac producer Hennessy. Gradually, they acquired their own ageing barrels, and then started bottling, thus becoming an independent producer. 
 
It’s still an "all in the family" operation. Gilles Merlet took over the reins forty years ago, streamlining, modernizing, and expanding their product lines. Now joined by his sons, Pierre and Luc, they produce their famous Cognac, Pineau des Charentes, Brandies and Liqueurs. Viva le Merlet!
 
We do not have to tell you that there are no artificial colors or flavors to speak of, or that this Cognac comes from a limited terroir in France. We don’t have to tell you that it is aged exclusively in Limousin oak, and has no added sugars, alcohols, or juices. Why? Because the label says "Cognac," that’s why. We do not have to tell you that Merlet VS Cognac is a blend of fine vintage Cognacs that are at least two years old… that’s what the VS stands for. 
 
Cognac is one of the most strictly legally defined and regulated Spirits in the world. The French take it VERY seriously. Every attribute is scrutinized; every letter on the label has meaning. So step up and buy with confidence. And while you are at it, whip up the signature Merlet Cognac cocktail — The Horse’s Neck — with one part Merlet VS, two parts Ginger Ale, a dash of Angostura bitters and orange zest. Tasty!
