A classy Cognac with a rich history.

The roots of the Meukow House go back to 1850. Tsar Alexander II of Russia loved him some good Cognac and he really didn’t want to run out of it at any moment, so he sent two brothers August-Cristophe and Gustav Meukow from Silesia to France to get that royal supply chain set up. Eventually, after the two brothers had been going back and forth between France and Russia for a while, which probably wasn’t so effortless back then, they decided to settle down in the town of Cognac and open up A.C. MEUKOW & Co. on August 1, 1862. The legendary Cognac House is still going strong today as it became part of the family-owned and independent Compagnie de Guyenne, founded by Michel Coste in 1979 and that’s when their range really took off. Today, you can get Meukow Cognac in more than 80 countries and the House is led by Michel’s children.

Meukow VS Cognac is the fittingly impressive overachiever child of the Meukow House. One of their flagship offerings, this is an elegant and well-balanced Cognac blend that manages to bring together the roundness of fruity flavors and the delicate woody notes. It’s bottled at 80 proof with a Russian black panther adorning the classy bottle. Meow! Oh, and let’s not forget this fierce dram was named Best Cognac VS and got the Double Gold Medal at the prestigious 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 90% of their production.
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.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
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.
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).
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
