Cognac, the world famous city that gave its name to the brandy, lies in the heart of Charente about 120kms north of Bordeaux. It is an attractive city with its narrow cobbled streets and elegant Renaissance facades.
The cognac brandy must be made from specific grapes and the brandy has to be distilled twice in copper pot stills. Usually cognac matures for at least two years in french oak barrels. Some Cognac-based drinks are must-haves, such as Pineau des Charentes or Grand Marnier.
