Bacardi to sell Cognac in USA, possibly Baron Otard

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 rebranded to 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!
