Product Description

With its fresh, marine notes, CAMUS Ile de Ré Fine Island is a perfect expression of the authentic style and qualities of Ile de Ré Cognacs. The grapes have naturally higher iodine content than those harvested on the mainland. In addition, the island’s mild climate helps to bestow a truly individual character on the eaux-de-vie it produces. Distilled on the lees to enhance the original flavors of the eaux-de-vie from which it is produced, Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac is then aged in an extremely damp cellar to add greater roundness, using lightly toasted oak barrels that provide an extremely delicate woody flavor. Ideal straight, over ice or chilled, served with fish or seafood.

FAQs

Cognac is a type of brandy that takes its name from the Cognac region of France. Made from twice-distilled white wine, Cognac is distilled in copper pots and aged in wooden barrels. The production techniques of Cognac are very specific, requiring a particular type of grapes, distillation practices and aging requirements.
Hennessy is a Cognac that is made in France but was started by an Irishman. Despite the common belief that Hennessy is a type of whiskey, it is made from grapes — grapes that have been twice-distilled and aged. The only notable similarity it bears to whiskey is that both are aged in oak barrels.
Cognac consumed as an appetizer is usually served neat. It’s also common practice to add a little bit of water, which makes the drink fruitier and more floral. Some water can also help to bring out the subtle spiciness of Cognac while also making it a bit smoother to drink.
