Renowned throughout the world, the production of Cognac has been regulated by its very own AOC since 1909. Only liqueurs from eaux-de-vie made from crus from the controlled appellation area of Cognac can be labelled as such. This liqueur must be distilled and aged on-site in compliance with authorised techniques: double distillation in a copper Charentais still, ageing in oak barrels for a set minimum ageing period. A good Cognac is subjected to a complex manufacturing process. It is never made from the eau-de-vie of of a single cru, but from a `marriage’ of eaux-de-vie that vary in age and cru – some as old as a hundred. To establish the age of a Cognac, only the number of years spent in oak casks or barrels are taken into account. As soon as an eau-de-vie is decanted into a glass recipient, it ceases to age. The longer it is left to age, the more a Cognac gains in complexity, fragrance, aromas and taste (spiced, pepper and cinnamon flavors). Please note that only Cognacs made exclusively from Petite and Grande Champagne (50% minimum) can use the “Fine Champagne” appellation. As the poster says, “The Best I Ever Had”

A dark blue background is the setting for the brightly clothed cavalier courtly gentleman who proudly posses the bottle. An appropriate spokesman for the product. One can imagine these posters positioned on the streets of Paris in the 1930’s.

Consequently these posters have become classics, that are highly sought after by today’s collectors.  This well preserved poster is perfect for a bar/restaurant setti

ng or any home decor, modern or traditional.
