Exclusively made up of eau-de-vie selected from the Fins Bois region in the vintage year of 1988, this fine Cognac spent a staggering 24 years aging in Limousin oak casks.
The year of 1988 was in fact, a leap year that commenced on a Friday. A difficult but promising year in the Cognac region of France, the summer of 1988 experienced extremely dry conditions through a heatwave, which saw the vines dig deep for nutrients deep in the soil. To retain its aromatic profile, such precious eau-de-vie has been stored in the Bache Gabrielsen demi johns since 2013.
