The Last Drop Hors d'Age Cognac 41,1%
The Last Drop Distillers are particularly proud of this offering, because vintage Cognac is becoming increasingly difficult to find. And so, in a small paradis, they tasted the remaining contents of a very old cask that they couldn’t allow to slip through their fingers. Traditionally made in a small, ancient copper still, this Cognac is rich in the characteristics that distinguish the great from the good. Deep bronze in colour with arresting flashes of gold when you hold it to the light, it is entrancing even before you’ve taken your first sip. Only 186 Bottles Exist Each bottle has been meticulously bottled and wax-dipped by hand. Part of the ‘Limited Bottling’ category The 1947 Single Estate Cognac is presented in a luxurious deep red The Last Drop leather case. A generous 50ml miniature, a custom-made stopper and a certificate of bottling complete this beautiful case.
