Cognac

Cognac, named after the town of Cognac, France, is a variety of brandy. For a brandy to bear the name Cognac, its production methods must meet certain legal requirements. In particular, it must be made from specified grapes of which Ugni blanc, known locally as Saint-Emilion, is the one most widely used.

Cognac matures in the same way as whiskies and wine when aged in barrels, and most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.

Courvoisier (owned by Beam Suntory), Hennessy (owned by LVMH), Martell (owned by Pernod Ricard), and Rémy Martin (owned by Rémy Cointreau) are some of the main producers of Cognac. The age of the cognac is calculated as that of the youngest component used in the blend.
