Pierre Ferrand Abel 45 Year Cognac is a rare and collectable Cognac from Maison Ferrand. To don the title XO – Extra Old –requires a minimum age of 6 years. This bottle goes beyond. Grande Champagne grapes are distilled in small copper alembic stills and aged in oak barrels with varying levels of char. The barrels are then blended to create a cognac that is delicate, sweet and floral. A venerable brandy to be sipped or paired with dessert.
