Cognac Landy is part of the larger company Cognac Ferrand. This relatively new house, which was established in 1989, was a collaboration between Alexandre Gabriel and a traditional wine growing family in the Charente. Thus, Cognac Ferrand, and therefore Cognac Landy too, was created with the philosophy of bringing new life back into the industry and production of cognac. Because of this, Cognac Landy is produced in the age old fashion without utilizing mass production techniques. Cognac Landy is created with the same philosophy as all of Ferrand’s brands. And this means that the cognac must be an expression of the land, and that the best grapes must be selected and slowly distilled over time. With that in mind, Cognac Landy is now well known in over 40 countries of the world and famous for being produced in the time-honored method of the Charente. The symbol of Cognac Landy is the greyhound, a dog known as being a companion to the French aristocracy over the centuries. In fact, King Francois I – himself born in Cognac – was known to be a particular fan of greyhounds. The dog was chosen as the symbol of Landy due to its excellence and elegance – two attributes that can also be assigned to Cognac Landy itself.
An intense mahogany colour that bears witness to long aging in oak. Initially light on the nose with elegant notes of honey and dried flowers, then opening on more complex flavours of sandalwood, prune, liquorice and candied fruit. The finish is supple and spicy with great depth.
