Cognac Single Distillery – Organic
Certified USDA organic blend of young and lively cognacs aged 3-4 years in Limousin oak; fresh and surprisingly round due to a special, fatty distillation process. Elegant balance of toffee, honeycomb, pear and white flowers. Delicious neat or in a brandy cocktail. 40% Alcohol.
The estate vineyards are in Fins Bois, just a few km away from Grande Champagne, also known as the first cru. Because of its proximity to the Grande Champagne area, the vineyard benefits from 2 terroirs, producing assemblages (blends) that have strength and fullness, but are round, supple and mature quicker than cognacs from the Grande Champagne.
About the Producer
The Distillerie du Peyrat has distilled cognacs for several decades and the family dates back to 1705 as distillers in the Charente region. After distilling cognac for bigger well known brands, the owner decided to produce and market his own cognac with a rather unique specialization in the Cognac area: the production of organic cognacs. Distillery du Peyrat now produces exclusively 100% organic cognacs. Located in a small village 10km east of Cognac on the banks of a river, du Peyrat produces, distills and ages their eau-de-vie with the respect of the environment and the intense expression of the terroir.
Cognac du Peyrat is certified organic by the USDA, and the strict European organization, Ecocert. The distillery has also committed to:
- Choosing “green” electricity produced by sustainable methods.
- Installing photovoltaic solar panels.
- Adopting the use of recycled paper.
