Character Goatson
Celebration of powerful femininity — bottled.

One stereotype about premium Cognacs is that they're usually sipped on in semi-dark smoke-filled halls of power, usually by old geezers in tailored suits. One Russian haute couture model is on a mission to change that. Olga Otrokhova, an avid Cognac connoisseur had trouble finding one that wasn't heavy or old school. So she did what writers usually do with novels: create a Spirit you'd love to drink.

She joined forces with the legends of Cognac-making, the Boinaud Family from the Grande Champagne region. They dusted off the casks containing the very rare 1960 vintage and used it as the core of the glorious new Spirit (about 80%, to be exact). The uniqueness of the terroir, the know-how of 24 generations, and the unparalleled passion for excellence were distilled into MONFLEURIE. The first series of the captivating and chic Cognac is dedicated to "L'Orchidée", the flower that signifies feminine beauty and love. The alluring eau-de-vie comes in a custom-made decanter hand-blown by an ancient French glassmaker, hidden in a lacquered wooden case. A true deluxe collectible.

Character Dogson
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.
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.
Cognac is a form of distilled Brandy. For a spirit to be labeled Cognac, it must be made from specified grapes, of which Ugni Blanc is the one most widely used. It must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Tronçais.
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.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
