Ferrand Légendaire Cognac
Ferrand // Grande Champagne, France
Ferrand Légendaire is a limited edition release which is made of a blend Ferrand's oldest cognacs, some of which date back 100 years. These cognacs were placed into glass demi-johns after they had reached their desired maturation. Master Blender Alexandre Gabriel created the blend and then placed it in a zebra cask to finish aging. This zebra cask was made by progressively removing several staves and replacing them with new ones thus creating a zebra-like pattern. Légendaire is the first of an expected annual release. Only 500 bottles were produced and US availability begins in November 2020.
