Product details

Champagne, France

Product description

Pierre Ferrand "1840 Original Formula" Grande Champagne Cognac was developed by Alexandre Gabriel, the company's proprietor, Christian Guerin, its cellar-master, and David Wondrich, American spirits and cocktail historian. Closely modeled on a rare, perfectly preserved bottle of Pinet-Castillon Cognac from the year 1840, this expression of Pierre Ferrand recreates the kind of Cognac that bartending pioneers of the 19th century would have used for their Juleps, Crustas and Punches.

    My choice of drink.

    My wife and I have been sipping this for over 15yrs. It’s by far the best cognac I’ve tasted. My wife mix her drink with Coca-Cola or apple juice I prefer Coca-Cola.

    Pierre Ferrand 1840 formula is the best cognac you can buy at this price point. The taste is uncompromising. I started drinking Pierre Ferrand over 20 years ago. It’s perfect for a cognac lover. It rivals other cognacs with big names and large advertising budgets.

    It's my wife's favorite cognac at a very reasonable price. Beats out some of the bigger names.

    This is the best I've had so far.


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.
