6. Camus:

Cognac Camus is a family owned cognac producing company. The company is significant for keeping with newer technologies and developments in society. In 2010, it launched a private lounge in Beijing. In addition to producing cognac, it has a number of wine, champagne and coffee products on the market.

Recommended Drink: Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac – This Atlantic Cognac comes from the Island of Re. The grapes benefit from the sunshine and salty breezes. The colour of the drink is golden.

Taste: Coherent! It has a strong taste on the palate with a pinch of dried fruit aromas. Try it with room temperature water or with an ice cube.

 

7. Hine Cognac:

Hine produces one of the most exquisite cognacs. The production is in small quantities but is of high quality. The cognacs are stored differently than other brands. The brand stores its products in vintage casks in cellars in Bristol, England, making it unique. Interestingly enough, the family who owns the cognac house used to smuggle the products between France and England.

 

8. Martell Cognac:

This is the oldest of the biggest cognac houses still present today. It was founded by Jean Martell in 1715. They are legendary for Martell Condon Bleu, Martell Extra L’Or. It has recently incorporated itself into the luxury goods market and has sales totaling 15 million litres a year.

Recommended Drink: Martell VSOP – This is a classic. The eaux-de-vie come from different growth areas. The prices are usually reasonable for 750 ml.

Taste: This drink is a bit sweet, well rounded, complex and has a hint of dried fruit in it.

 

9. Cognac Prince Hubert de Polignac:

The brand was named after one of the oldest noble families in France. The cognac is packaged in grey, red or blue coloured bottles that are distinct. The brand was first conceived 60 years ago and has won numerous awards since its conception, including Gold at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in 2007. Each drink was designed to bring to mind the noble heritage and history. It is the official cognac at the Royal Court of Denmark.

Recommended Drink: Prince Hubert de Polignac Heritage. Great gift and great look that is distinctive.

Taste: The taste is long and profound combining only the richest and purest blends.

 

10. Rastignac:

I included Rastignac on this list for a variety of reasons. It is one of the lesser known brands and is owned by two brothers in partnership with their father. The XO products are rumored to be excellent. I highly recommend that you try this brand.
