A soft and round VSOP Cognac.

The roots of Prince de Didionne Cognac date back to 1847 when Jules Gautret founded the original Cognac trade house in the city of Jonzac in the Haute Saintonge region. A century later, the house was acquired by the Coopérative des Viticulteurs Charentais and later changed its name to UniCognac SA. Today, it’s a subsidiary of the first cooperative group of the Cognac region, Ocealia, and since 2007, the premium Cognac is bottled at a state-of-the-art facility in Saint Germain de Lusignan.

The Cognac House enjoys a symbiosis with about 500 Charentais winegrowers who provide it with the best wines, made mainly from grapes from the Petite Champagne, Fins Bois, and Bons Bois terroirs. This way, the costs of production and marketing are lowered for the winegrowers and UniCognac has a steady supply (Their stock of fine XO brandies is the largest in the Cognac region). The high-end Cognacs are finally distilled in UniCognac’s swan-neck Charentais pot stills before being blended by the maître de chai.

Prince de Didonne VSOP Cognac is crafted from Ugni Blanc grapes from the Petite Champagne and Fins Bois terroirs. After it’s double distilled in the traditional swan neck stills, it matures in Limousin and Troncais oak casks. For this smooth and supple expression, the maître de chai selects Cognacs that are a minimum of five years old and sometimes older from different crus (terroirs). Savor it in a tulip-shaped glass or a craft cocktail.
