Maison ferrand Reserve 1er cru Grande Champagne Cognac
Pierre Ferrand Réserve is a "double-aged" brandy made entirely from grapes from vineyards in Angeac in the heart of Grande Champagne. While the little brother of this brandy, called Ambre, is marked by fresh fruit notes, these are transformed with a little more age into dried fruit and jams, which are joined by warm, toasted notes and a distinct touch of French oak. Parts of the blend are also stored in casks that have previously contained the dessert wine Banyuls - hence the double storage.
Maison Ferrand, led by spirits guru Alexandre Gabriel, is the company behind some of the most essential brandy, rum and gins in the modern spirits landscape. Under the umbrella are Pierre Ferrand Cognac, Plantation Rum and Citadelle Gin, rum under the brand Kaniché and brandy under the name Claude Chatelier. In addition, a number of luxury liqueurs are produced, of which their curaçao in particular has aroused enthusiasm in cocktail bars around the world. The company embraces wide, but common to every drop is an unwavering dedication to quality.
Maison Ferrand was created with one mission: to preserve France's gastronomic treasures. Alexandre has made a virtue out of breathing life into ancient and long-forgotten traditions, and the ever-teachable Frenchman is known, among other things, for dusting up and buying up old archives from bankrupt houses, to learn more about the production methods of the past. But Ferrand also understands the value of innovation, and today innovation is valued as highly as tradition. This is clearly seen in the brand Citadelle Gin. Getting to distill gin in Cognac required five years of bureaucratic battle with the area's stubborn liquor giants.
Since then, the venture has spread beyond France's national borders, and today Ferrand is perhaps best known for his series of rum. Under the name Plantation, Alexandre buys rum from many different countries in the Caribbean and then stores them in France on brandy dishes. In the series there is rum for both the beginner and the connoisseur, for both the daiquiri and the Glencairn glass. In 2017, the company bought the Barbados distillery West Indies Rum Distillery, and now also has its own rum production from scratch.
