Pale & Dry XO Grande Champagne
Delamain is one of the last family-owned Cognac houses. This is a beautiful old Cognac made using the best eau-de-vie from the Grande Champagne region – powerful, mellow and subtle, all at the same time. A heroic after-dinner treat. Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Dec 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The House of Delamain is one of the oldest names in the cognac business, with roots dating back to the early 1600s when Nicholas Delamain left France for Ireland. However, it wasn't until 1725 that descendant James Delamain moved back to France and joined forces with cognac trader Issac Ranson to create Ranson & Delamain. After James' death in 1800, the company fell apart due to inheritance laws, and it wasn't until 1924 that his grandsons restablished the firm in the family name and it became Delamain & Co. Today, Delamain is one of the last family-run cognac houses, and has a very strict selection process when it comes to choosing their supplies. They do not have any contracts and only purchase afte tasting, to ensure the very best quality. The company doesn't have any VS or VSOP cognacs, its entry level is a 25 year old XO.
