Elite Cognac as a Gift Alcohol
Cognac, a variety of brandy, is considered to be one of the finest, if not the most finest, among spirits. Ita€™s a drink that has been favored and loved over the centuries by kings, emperors and European aristocrats. It was produced in the Charente wine-growing region of France.
Good cognac became an attribute of luxury and affluence. Perhaps, any other alcoholic beverage won't be able to compete with cognac in status and prestige. Elite cognac as a gift is the perfect solution for any celebration or banquet. There is no need to rack your brains any longer with what to present to your good friend or supervisor. A quality product in a beautiful gift box is one of the best gifts for men. Unlike many spirits, cognac, if you drink it in moderation, has healing properties, dilates blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.
Cognac, like no other strong drink, has the widest range of different flavors and aroma. However, belonging to any kind of beverage - does not guarantee the success of the brand. Manufacturers are increasingly paying attention to the design of bottles and gift packs to stand out from its competitors. Some manufacturers are beginning to produce a Gift alcohol. Every single bottle of such alcohol is a beautiful art work and a very precious gift.
However, keep in mind that the quality and aging of cognac can also be identified by the label on the bottle. The French government developed rules for labeling, classifying the cognac by its smoothness. V.S. (Very Special) is aged at least two and one-half years. V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), or Reserve, is aged in wood at least four years. X.O. (Extra Old, Napoleon, or Extra) is that which has been aged at least six years. These are bare minimums. Most houses age their cognacs for twice the minimum required. Aging brings a mellowness, less fiery alcohol and an extremely unctuous, palate-coating complexity of flavors and aromas.
To choose the bottle of fine Cognac, you should know the leading houses. The most well known cognac producers are Hennessy, Remy Martin, Courvoisier, Camus and Martell, but there are many independent houses that make first rate Cognacs. Hennessy Cognac became the most successful Cognac exporter in the world. On top of it the Hennessy VS cognac is a very enjoyable mix in long drinks and cocktails. Remy Martin Cognac produces exquisite Fine Champagne Cognac, which is the category of highest quality in cognac production. Courvoisier is amongst the four leading cognac houses in the world. Martell is the oldest of the most well known cognac producers. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, Martell Extra La€™Or de Jean Martell and the recent Creation Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market.
