Baron Jean-Baptiste Otard began making Cognac in 1795, since then Otard is one of the major Cognac Brands.
Baron Otard released a limited-edition XO Gold exclusively in duty-free and travel-retail. Baron Otard XO Gold Precious Edition is available in one-liter bottles presented in a special gold-coloured pack and was designed to give the cognac “an even stronger presence” in-store, according to the company.
The quality of this XO Gold Precious Edition is the same as the “normal” XO Gold.

A reader sent us a bottle of very old Baron Otard VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac.
The reader wrote: “I’ve looked around online for more info, but all the ones I did find were somewhat similar (label/bottle info) but not EXACTLY the same.” Who could help him with additional information about this bottle?

Bacardi is well known for their clear rum, but they are also owner of of many other spirits, such as Grey Goose, Bombay Sapphire gin, Dewar’s Scotch and Baron Otard Cognac, which is rebranded quite recently.
Currently Bacardi Ltd. is very big in clear spirits in USA, the Baron Otard isn’t for sale there. Robert Furniss-Roe, president of Bacardi North America, declined to give any details about what brand name the cognac would carry but we are putting our money on Baron Otard…
Otard did a major restyling and rebranding lately, the name has been changed from Otard to Baron Otard, also the bottle-design (See picture: left old, right new bottle) and blends changed.
Most shocking change in blend is the Otard VSOP Fine Champagne, the new Baron Otard is no 100% Fine Champagne Cognac anymore. Luckily the great taste didn’t changed very much. We will post the review of this new Cognac very soon!

Visiting the Cognac Region is a great way to learn more about Cognac, especially when you visit some Cognac distillers with their great and interactive tours…
On YouTube I found two HD movies from Remy Martin and Baron Otard, where the tour is almost completely shot. It is an easy and inexpensive way to learn much about Cognac and these brands in general!
