Character Goatson
A brilliant Grand Champaign Cognac made with Colombard grapes for a floral and fruit-forward profile.

Maison Ferrand began as the farm and vineyards of Pierre Ferrand whose family had harvested grapes for ten generations. In 1989 to earn some extra money, Alexander Gabriel set about to contract his business-school education to help the struggling farm pull itself out. Pierre offered him a stake in the business and soon he bought out the entire operation. Since then he has not only thrived, but earned the respect of all the established Cognac houses in the region and expanded to include lines of Spirits from around the world, including Plantations Rum, Citadelle Gin, and more.

Pierre Ferrand Ambré is made from the most sought-after grape region in Cognac — Grand Champaign. More, they have used Colombard grapes from this region to bring fare florals of lily and iris along with autumn fruits to the palate. It is bright and fresh and a winner of the Gold Medals at the Cognac Masters Competition and the Chicago Beverage Testing Institute. And if you are into Cognac cocktails, Maison Ferrand says this one is perfect for a classic Sidecar.

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.
Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 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.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
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.
