Camus, the largest independent, family-owned Cognac house and fifth largest in the world, is celebrating 150 years and five generations with Family Legacy, a blend of five crus married in eight stages to create a sumptuous offering. Housed in a very special decanter, the suggested retail price is $1299. Each of the eight steps takes about three months of blending. These five crus are blended from the youngest to the oldest to ensure the most homogeneous and delicate possible match. To reach its peak, Family Legacy must attain the perfect strength of 40.8 percent volume. Rich, complex and sophisticated, the final offering is a supreme tribute to a long legacy of excellence.
Separately, Camus introduced three special cognacs, the Ile de Re Fine Island collection. Ile de Re is off the western coast of France in the most western Cognac appellation. The collection includes Ile de Ré Fine Island, Ile de Ré Double Matured and Ile de Ré Cliffside Cellar. All have varying tastes – fruity, floral, spicy and oaken in varying combinations. Serve as an aperitif or after the meal and enjoy these exceptional variations.
