Cognac - Shop Brandy Online
Cognac a variety of brandy named after the commune of Cognac, France. It is produced in the surrounding wine-growing region in the districts of Charente. There are three types of cognac offer at Wine Barrica: VS (Very Special), VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) and XO (Extra Old). VS liquors defines a blend in which the earliest brandy has been aged for at minimum two years in a cask, while VSOP cognac must age for at least four years. Lastly, to get an XO designation, cognac must age for six years or more. The mature the liquor, the smoother the flavor. For this reason, aged cognacs are best when served on their own in a drink, while the younger ones are best offered to mixed cocktails.
