Experience cognac as it was 200 years ago. Sazerac de Forge & Fils is named in honor of Bernard Sazerac de Forge, who founded a cognac house in France in 1782. The Sazerac Company recently returned to Cognac and acquired Domaine Sazerac de Segonzac in order to produce their own “Finest Original” cognac. Like Bernard Sazerac de Forge, whose brandies were enjoyed all over the world from the 17th to the 19th centuries, the idea was to make a big, robust, old-school cognac to stand apart from the more genteel styles of modern blends.
The Sazerac de Forge & Fils “Finest Original” Cognac blend includes cognacs made from a number of old and rare native grape varieties, as opposed to just the fairly neutral Ugni Blanc. This gives us the unique opportunity to enjoy cognac as it was 150 years ago, prior to the Phylloxera epidemic that forever changed the cognac-making process. Blended with cognacs that have aged between seven and fifty years, this blend is complex, full of character and inevitably produced in very small quantities. Bottled at 47% abv.
