About d'Ussé 1969 Anniversaire CognacFirst released in 2019 to mark hip-hop mogul Jay-z's 50th birthday, D’Ussé 1969 Anniversaire Limited Edition is an ultra-limited Grande Champagne cognac.

A luxurious expression, it comes in a 12-cut crystal diamond decanter design and a high-end leather box, equipped with a booklet featuring the cognac's description by its creator and Maître de Chai Michel Cassavechia.
The Otard family can be traced back to the mid 9th century, to a Norwegian warrior, Ottar. James O’Tard was created a Baron in 1701 after fighting alongside Louis XIV of France. His great-grandson, Jean-Baptiste Antoine Otard established the French Cognac house in 1795, in his name. The Château de Cognac he purchased was built in the tenth century to protect the villagers from Norman invaders.
The Cognac house has remained in the family ever since. Situated in the Cognac region overlooking the Charente, the historical Château de Cognac castle is the birthplace of French King François I, where cognac production has been taking place since 1796. The chateau was chosen largely due in part to its cellars, which provided unique properties for the aging of the cognacs. D’Ussé Cognac is a product of Bacardi that is produced at the Chateau de Cognac. Released in June of 2012, in New York, d’Ussé is a collaboration with hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.

Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of France.
Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.
The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).
Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)
