Limited Edition 100 Year Old L’Hommage de Pierre Ferrand CognaC

28 November 2010 No Comment

Pierre Ferrand, one of only a handful of Cognac houses in France specializing in old Cognacs from the coveted Grande Champagne region that are not blended with lesser varieties, has come out with a new 100-year-old bottling.

The limited edition L’Hommage de Pierre Ferrand was born of Cognac distilled prior to World War I stored in the shade of Ferrand’s Logis d’Angeac cellar for more than a century.

Bottled in an exquisitely crafted, numbered crystal carafe, only 10 bottles will be available for sale in the U.S. by special order for the suggested retail price of about $3,000 apiece.

The aged spirit has taken on a beautiful dark shimmering bronze color after its long repose in its wooden cask. Exceptionally smooth, it has aromas of prune and candied fruits. Each bottle comes in a wooden case with a certificate of authenticity.

“We wanted to offer something supremely special from our cellars,” notes Alexandre Gabriel, president/owner of Cognac Ferrand. “We chose a beautiful bottle to contain this rare Cognac [but] the taste is even more beautiful than the bottle.”
