Ferrand Cognac 10 Générations port square

Alexandre Gabriel and Maison Ferrand, proprietors of a historic estate and spiritual heirs of a Cognac legacy of 10 generations, announced the limited-edition Ferrand Cognac 10 Générations Port Cask Year of the Rabbit, created in celebration of the Chinese New Year 2023 – The Year of the Rabbit – which can be seen in the roots of the label.

This double matured Premier Cru de Cognac also pays tribute to 10 generations of Ferrand’s for whom a great cognac was above all the fruit of patient work on a great terroir.

Available in select U.S. markets beginning in December 2022, Ferrand Cognac 10 Générations Port Cask Year of the Rabbit is bottled at 44% alcohol by volume (88 proof) with a suggested retail price of $64.99 for a 750ml bottle. Only 12,000 bottles of this limited-edition cognac have been produced.

10 Générations Port Caskis a Grande Champagne Cognac made from a single variety of grape, the Ugni Blanc. It is a rich and round cognac, with a creamy texture and pastry notes. This distinctive cognac is double distilled in copper pot stills with medium lees.

The presence of lees enables the production of a richer aromatic palette and adds complexity to the floral and fruity base of the Ugni Blanc grape. It is then double aged, first in French oak casks. A second ageing then occurs in Port wine casks, contributing notes of vanilla, honey, and cinnamon to the final liquid and resulting in an ABV increased to 88 proof, a nod to the number 8 – the luckiest number in China.

The Ferrands have been present in Segonzac, in Charente, since the 15th century. They belong to one of the oldest families of this area called Campania by the Romans and, later, Champagne and more precisely, Grande Champagne, to designate the vineyards around Segonzac.
