Exclusively in oak barrelsAGEING
Ageing takes place exclusively in oak casks
Eaux-de-vie are aged exclusively in oak casks, without interruption, solely in a storage facility registered with the Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac. This registration is mandatory to obtain the necessary Cognac certificates, guaranteeing age and origin that only the BNIC is authorised to issue and which are required for export.
Controlled by the BNIC
All aspects of ageing are controlled by the BNIC by special authorisation from Customs (2003 executive order modified).
