For the Ferrand family, now on their fifth generation of cellar master, blending is an art form and each Cognac is a masterpiece in its own right. This passion, combined with the high quality ingredients and traditional "on the lees" distillation process, creates something quite magical, heavenly even. It's no wonder that the Ferrand Selection des Anges Cognachas won so many awards.
Of course, when we talk about Angels in Cognac this is a reference to the ancient term "the Angels share", taken during the long maturation process as the Cognac slowly evaporates over time. As the Angels take their share, flavors are refined and intensified, creating a sublime sensory experience with a higher concentration of aromas the longer the Cognac ages.
This particular selection by Maison Ferrand has an average age of 30 years, meaning the Angels have had their fair share and what's left is a true treat for the senses that will please the palate of even the most discerning Cognac connoisseur.
