As demand soars for France’s national spirit, distillers have continued to innovate in the category with bottlings of superb quality. We present some of the most acclaimed Cognacs from our latest taste test.
Cognacs from A De Fussigny and Rémy Martin made our pick of acclaimed bottlings
Consumer interest in Cognac has risen in recent years, boosted by accessible products and innovative line extensions.
To assess the quality of some of the bottlings on the market, we held our Cognac Masters blind-tasting competition last month.
The competition was judged over Zoom by Tobias Gorn, spirits specialist, consultant and writer, and co‐founder of International Drinks Specialists, and Melita Kiely, editor of The Spirits Business and chair of the tasting.
Wine Sorted shipped the bottles to the judges’ homes, ensuring that the products were labelled anonymously.
From vintage bottlings to XO Cognacs, the blind tasting gave out a high number of Master, Gold and Silver medals to worthy entrants.
