Camus reveals second port finished Cognac

Camus Cognac has launched its second batch of port cask finished Cognac — this time finshed in former first-fill tawny port casks. 

The finished product was bottled at 43.2% ABV. The wines used to make Cognac are distilled on the lees, exclusively in Charentais pot stills with a capacity of 2,500 litres. 

The maturation process involves an initial ageing in lightly heated barrels, which the brand suggests allows for a deeper interaction between the liquid and the wood.  Then the liquid is finished in old port casks selected by the Camus cellar master. 

For this limited-edition release, Camus has added touches of metallic gold to its recently updated bottle design, while the producer has used a deep red tone on the cap and front label to transmit the colour of the liquid inside the bottle.

Camus Special Finish Port Cask Finish is available from select specialist retailers.
