About Louis Royer VSOP Cognac
Situated along the banks of the Charente River in the Cognac region of France, Maison Royer is one of the most prestigious producers of cognac in the world. The House was founded in 1853 by Louis Royer, who was originally a beekeeper, like his father and grandfather before him (the symbol of Maison Royer remains a bee). After acquiring a few casks of cognac and letting them mature in the cellar of his home, Royer began bottling and selling the cognac under his own name, primarily to customers in Scandinavia.
Today, Jérome Royer — a fifth-generation master distiller and the great-great-great grandson of Louis Royer — continues to shepherd his family legacy forward. "My blood is cognac," says Royer.
This VSOP has a signature mature quality found in older cognacs. Louis Royer cognacs have a signature smoothness an exquisite balance of fruity notes and woody notes create an expressive cognac. A truly complex blend of eaux-de-vie, you can expect hearty, rich, aromatic notes.

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)
