Beam Suntory-owned brand Courvoisier Cognac has introduced a limited edition VSOP cognac that has been aged in bourbon casks.
The launch marks the first expression within the new Avant-Garde series to be released for a limited time.
Courvoisier Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition has been made with the brand’s VSOP blend which has then been aged to taste in Kentucky bourbon casks.
According to the brand, the process of extra aging creates an ‘elegant and velvety finish with tasting notes of vanilla, honey and sweet marmalade’.
The 40% ABV Cognac is a first-of-its-kind blend offering an amber golden colour which is described as having ‘soft smoky leather and sweet orange notes’
“We’re thrilled to release Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition, a first-of-its-kind expression for the House of Courvoisier,” said Stephanie Kang, senior marketing director at Courvoisier.
Kang added: “With the help of our local artisans and winegrowers in our hometown of Jarnac, we were able to develop an innovation that is sure to appeal to cognac and bourbon drinkers alike.”
Courvoisier Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition will be available for a limited time throughout the US for an RRP of $39.99 for a 750ml bottle.
Courvoisier Cognac offers several expressions including VS, VSOP, XO, Initiale Extra, and its ultimate expression of the House, L’Essence de Courvoisier.
