Our VSOP brandy has been distilled in Coffey stills from Colombard, Merlot, Muscat and Airen grape varietals. We age our brandy in rather dry cellars with exposure to temperature variations. The casks we use are large grain French oak with high temperature toasting (up to 200 C, equivalent of 392 degrees Fahrenheit) with a small percentage of new casks being used.

Palate - soft palate, with a delicate mix of muscat grapes, wine notes and toasted oak
