What Is Premium Cognac?

Brandy is a fruit-forward, lightly sweet liquor with a graceful silky character and toffee aroma distilled from wine; Cognac is a French oak barrel-aged spirit from the Cognac region of France—celebrated for its subtle complexity. At Barbank, we carry a variety of brandies and cognacs so that you can satisfy your craving for this luxurious beverage.

Where Does Rare Cognac Come From?

All cognac comes from the Cognac region of France, regardless of the individual bottle’s rarity. In the past, you may have had to book a European vacation to find rare cognac. Luckily, Barbank makes it possible for you to order rare and premium cognac right to your front door. 

How Is Premium Cognac Made?

Cognac is made from fermented grapes grown in the Cognac region of France. Distilling them once results in wine; it’s the second distillation that takes us one step closer to this exquisite brandy. The double-distilled mixture is then aged in oak barrels for at least two years. Each individual type of cognac may include additives (like caramel or Boisé).

How Much Sugar Is In Cognac? 

A 1.5-ounce serving of cognac or brandy typically contains around 100 calories and zero grams of sugar—thanks to fermentation.

What Are The Different Types of Cognac and Brandy? 

While the types of brandy and cognac are not as strictly delineated as, say, scotch and whiskey, there are a few different types to look out for. 

Cognac is a brandy exclusively made in the Cognac region of France.

Grappa is a brandy made from grape pomace (the pulp byproduct of crushed grapes).

Applejack is a brandy made from apple or apple pomace.

Armagnac is, in the same fashion as cognac, a brandy made exclusively in the Armagnac region of France. 

What Is The Difference Between Cognac and Brandy? 

Cognac is a type of brandy. The “differences” between them come down to geography and distinction.

Area of origin

Cognac must be made in the Cognac region of France. Much like champagne, this simply adds to its air of exclusivity.

Ingredients and requirements

Cognac is distilled from white wine. The white wine must be made with grapes from one of Cognac’s six regions—Bon Bois, Borderies, Bois Ordinaires, Fin Bois, Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne.
