Character Goatson
A Classic, four-year-old French Cognac finished in highly-prized mizunara casks.

Distillerie Tessendier has been a world-class producer of Cognac since 1880. For generations they sold their spirits to other producers under contract, but that all changed in in 2005 when they started offering up their own range of brands, including Cognac Park, Cognac Campagnere, and Cognac Grand Breuil. They have recently started branching out, using their flavorfully-seasoned ex-Cognac casks to age and finish Rums. We hope more of this kind of experimentation is on the way.

The Spirit-making world CRAVES mizunara oak casks. There are just not enough of them and they are super-expensive. Cognac Park has addressed the challenges by aging their famous Cognac for four years in French casks like usual, then finishing it for six months in special mizunara casks. This is Cognac Park Borderies Mizunara Finished — the first Cognac we’ve ever found using this rare Japanese wood. And like all mizunara-aged Spirits, it lends a floral and herbal quality to the dram that is very special indeed.

Smartass corner:
Mizunara oak — Quercus mongolica, also called Mongolian oak — is vibrant and flavorful for Spirit-making. But it’s also very porous. Entire batches of Spirit have been lost to leaking and rupturing barrels. So these rare trees must be more than 200 years old and carefully handled in order to get usable wood. This makes mizunara casks rare and very expensive.

Character Dogson
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.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
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).
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.
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.
