About Naud Fine VSOP Cognac
The Naud family history has seen 5 generations of entrepreneurs crafting spirits in the past century. The art was rediscovered by Jean-Michel Naud in the 80s. The son-in-law of Robert Perrier, Naud was passionate about wine and spirits and a trained oenologist. Together with his son Pierre, they resurrected the distillery in order to craft cognac and a range of other spirits.
Emile Perrier founded la Distillerie du Donjon, his first distillery, in 1923, after studying distilling in Bordeaux. In 1936 an ancient grain mill in Pinthiers was converted into a cognac distillery by Emile's son, Jean-Gabriel, taking the name Distillerie Perrier. The distillery had 5 Speichim copper pot stills which continued operation under Jean-Gabriel's son Robert. It wasn't until 1999 that Jean-Michel Naud built the first vodka distillery in the Charente region, crafting premium neutral wheat spirit. Finally, in 2017 Pierre and his son revived the distillery in Pinthiers, firing up its 5 pot stills in order to craft premium spirits using grapes from the family's expanding vineyards.
Naud Cognac VSOP is a fine showcase of the tradition and expertise that the cognac house is built upon. Crafted with grapes from vineyards on the Charentais hillsides, the cognac is double-distilled using traditional small copper pot stills over open fires. Then, the cognac is left to mature in French oak casks before being blended by the Cellar Master.

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)
