Description

A luscious counterpoint to the “elegance at all costs” mindset of many Cognac houses, Alexander Gabriel at Ferrand prefers allowing each cask to find its own path. In the case of this particular barrel, the voluptuous intensity and near-abyssal depth is precisely what made it irresistible to me. Stewed and dried citrus fruits interplay with the stickiest of fig puddings, furnishing a palate and finish that balances magnificently at full-throttle cask-strength. Chew this slowly after dinner as a fitting finale to any well-lived evening.

About this SPIRIT

Maison Ferrand

Maison Ferrand

Maison Ferrand is one of the world’s premier boutique producers of fine spirits, and the architect of the an historical spirits movement. The company was founded by Alexandre Gabriel in 1989 with a mission to preserve age-old, craft production methods that capture the true expression of the spirit, and a commitment to revisit the classics while advancing innovation.

The adventure began with Ferrand Cognac, a 100% Grande Champagne Cognac with roots in the region stretching back over four centuries and ten generations. In 1996, Alexandre created Citadelle Gin, the Gin de France, spearheading the movement for French gins. Due to strict regulations imposed by Cognac’s appellation d’origine controlee (AOC), Alexandre Gabriel was obligated to stop using his cognac stills for seven months of the year. After five long years of negotiations, he obtained the AOC authorization to distill gin during the period that the stills were usually dormant, giving the traditional copper pot stills new life and purpose.

Since 1989, surrounded by an enthusiastic team, Alexandre has dedicated himself to the mission of creating superb spirits that express the marriage of passion, terroir and the passage of time.
