The Delamain family have been handcrafting their exceptional Cognac since 1824 and remain one of the last family owned houses. They benefit from universal recognition as the leading specialist in the blending and elevage of fine old Cognac, using only eau-de-vie from La Grande Champagne - the first great growth of Cognac. This is then aged in seasoned oak casks for a minimum of two decades, before being blended and bottled under the control and expertise of the direct descendants of the founder, James Delamain. The ‘Pale’ in ‘Pale & Dry’ refers to the fact that it is much paler than other cognacs of this age due to the natural pale colour of the cognacs used in the blend which are all matured in old casks. The ‘Dry’ refers to the fact that it only has its natural sweetness. The blend at natural strength (around 50% ABV) is very slowly broken down to 40% with weak old Grande Champagne Cognacs at 15% which enrich the blend. Floral and spicy on the nose with a delicate elegance and distinction, the palate is mellow and round with a full-bodied fruitiness that finishes with a slight hint of liquorice. A wonderful Cognac and a great gift idea for spirits enthusiasts.
