Cognac is a beverage with a history of more than 6 centuries, having a long tradition which invites you to travel across the world of flavors combined in a drink with an alcohol content of 38 – 50% and a velvety texture.
To have a quality cognac, manufacturers are required to go through four stages to create it. The first involves obtaining a quality wine, followed by the stage in which the obtained beverage is distilled by strict methods. The third stage consists in the aging of the eaux-de-vie, the final stage being the one in which the blending is done.
So, if you want to delight yourself with a high quality cognac or offer it to someone who is dear to you, we have prepared some carefully selected assortments that any fine liquor lovers will appreciate:

Hennessy X.O is one of the few types of cognac that has the power to hypnotize with the flavor of an Extra Old assortment. Its intense color shows that it is a hard liquor and the taste that remains after drinking it reveals the complexity of the aging process to which it was subjected. It consists of 100 eaux-de-vie aged for a period of at least 12 years, its aromas being a symphony of fresh and dried fruits and wood notes.
2. MARTELL – www.diplomaticshop-online.ro – 710 lei
