About Single District Cognac

Serve in a Snifter
Single District Cognac is a relatively new, rather limited category. They are produced from a single district in the Charentes region; leading examples are from the Bois a Terroirs cru, an island that is the westernmost area of the Cognac production zone. These particular Cognacs are aged in various manners, be it old barrels or lightly toasted barrels to give them their own unique characteristics. These tend to be less aggressive styles of Cognac, for those looking for this style; quality is excellent and prices are quite reasonable.
