To produce Lasserre Honey Cognac Liqueur , we start off by using the locally grown Ugni Blanc Grapes – Through several steps, you can follow our journey from picking the grapes, until we bottle the Cognac.
We begin, from the very origin of the Ugni Blanc grapes in southern France. The grapes are harvested for eau de vie, which later is used for the Cognac. Due to strict borders only Cognac may be crafted in Cognac – In the 66.000 hectares of Petite Champagne.
The distillation process has been used for centuries! In order to transform wine into eau de vie. It’s a long and delicate distillation process, by using our copper stills.
The eau de vie and our wooden casks, combine the flavours as well as colors. All of our eau de vie is aged, for a minimum of two and a half years, before selected for tasting
The eau de vie is always tasted beforehand, to make sure that we use the best quality. Maturation is the only factor that determines the quality of a Cognac.
The eau de vie has been chosen after maturating for at least, two and a half years. Afterwards the blending process begin, caramel extract is added to give the fine color. Natural honey is added for it’s sweet taste. Ginger extract is added for the mellow flavor.
The blend has been chosen, and now the bottling process can begin. As beautiful and unique, the process is to getting the correct blend. Just as unique as the inside, so is the outside of the bottle.
