The Merlet family's know-how has been built up over five generations. Under the management of Gilles Merlet and his sons, the house has diversified its range of products: fruit liqueurs, cognac and pineau; diverse and creative reflections of this long experience. For the Merlet VS Cognac, Gilles and his sons have selected and blended Eaux-de-vie from different regions of the Cognac appellation to ensure consistent quality. The Eaux-de-vie are at least two years old. The cognacs selected for this blend are light and easy to make; mainly from Fins Bois 'Crus', but also from Bons Bois and some Petite Champagne. Depending on the blends, other Crus-Eaux-de-vie distilled by Merlet can be used. Merlet VS Cognac is slightly woody and delicately fruity.Tasting notes:Colour: straw gold.
