Hermitage releases 100-year-old Cognac

Premium Cognac house Hermitage has announced Hermitage Siècle d’Or 100 Years Old Cognac, the oldest barrel-aged Cognac it has ever released.
Named for the ‘Golden Century’ in France, just 68 one-litre decanters of the Cognac have been released, presented in handmade Cumbria Crystal decanters. 
The Siècle d’Or 100 Years Old Cognac has been made from Ugni Blanc grapes from the Grande Champagne region and distilled in copper Alembic Charentais stills. 
David Baker, founder, explained that the release “is one of only a very small quantity of Cognac aged in cellars in the heart of the Premier Cru of Cognac known as Grande Champagne.” 
He continued: “Untouched and unblended this vintage Cognac has aged for 100 years in Limousin oak barrels. This exceptionally long ageing period has created a wide complexity of rich flavours and aromas, common only with the finest and oldest Cognacs. The balance and depth of flavour is a masterpiece of smoothness and quality. Flavours of cocoa, burnt toffee, mushroom, ginger, candied fruit, and kumquat are all wrapped up in an intensely rich rancio found only in the rarest of Cognacs.”
Hermitage Cognac Siècle d’Or 100 Year Old Cognac (40.5% ABV) is available to purchase via Hermitage Cognac, priced at £24,900.
