Pierre Ferrand Cognac – a portfolio of Cognacs from Maison Ferrand and Alexandre Gabriel from the Grande Champagne region of Cognac – is a rare jewel in the crown of Maison Ferrand, the house owned by Alexandre Gabriel for more than 25 years. What he has done with these jewels will mesmerize your taste buds. Join Alexandre and Cognac expert Doug Frost and taste your way through vintages like 1972 and 1975 to curated blends. And then we come to the ‘piece de resistance’ – the unveiling and first U.S. tasting of The Last Cask – 1914. In the winter of 1914, when their husbands had gone off to defend their country in World War I, the women of a little village in Grande Champagne got together to distill the wine made from the grapes harvested a few months earlier. This became the legendary Pierre Ferrand Vintage 1914. Yes, the Last Cask means just that. This is the last cask that will be bottled for the 1914 vintage. Some of the Cognacs you will taste have never before been seen in the U.S. as they are from a collector’s private stock. If you join us, we assure you this will be a Cognac savoring event you won’t soon forget.
