Details

A rich, robust dark cognac with hints of mocha, coffee and roasted walnuts. Aged for more than 20 years in oak casks, Hermitage Café 20 is at its best late morning when the taste buds are at their most receptive. During the 18th and 19th centuries in London and other capitals of Europe, cognac was often enjoyed with dark coffees, sweetmeats or pastries. Today Hermitage Café 20 is for those who, like their ancestors, enjoy the excitement and joy of the 20th century café culture.

"This is as good as it gets and is mind-blowing with after-dinner coffee." Olly Smith, TV Presenter & Journalist

Additional Information

Aroma There is a rich coffee and mocha aroma with hints of roasted walnuts and Demerara sugar.
Ageing This cognac has been aged in new Limoursin barrels for 6 - 8 months before being transferred to old barrels for the remainder of the 20 years.
Distillation Distilled by a well known cognac producer on a small Charentais Alembic still.
Flavour Intensely rich mocha and coffee flavours combined with brittle toffee and some citrus finishing notes ensure that this cognac will provide lasting pleasure .
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength Some gradual reduction has taken place over nearly four years to ensure this cognac is sold at its best strength
Viticulture The land here is flatter than around the town of Segonzac but the soil is chalky and porous, ideal for growing cognac vines as the roots can penetrate deep into the ground looking for water.
