Under the french “savoir-faire” Cognac must be distilled twice in copper pot stills, then aged in French Limousin or Tronçais oak for a minimum of two years. The most prominent grape in cognac is the Ugni Blanc, which yields a wine low in alcohol and high in acid, resulting in a super-smooth brandy.
