CAMUS adds another milestone to its Rarissimes range with a very limited release of 40 YEAR-OLD COGNAC

The first presentation to the market of this masterful 40-year Cognac - latest creation in the CAMUS Rarissimes range – is signed by Patrick Léger, Cellar Master of the House of CAMUS.

To preserve and ensure the quality of this 2014 edition, at 40.9% vol. and limited to only 991 bottles, the filling of each one was witnessed by a bailiff.

Rare, pure and eternal, the platinum CAMUS plaque emphasizes the bottle’s uniqueness, of which every detail of its black capsule evokes the CAMUS “Paradise” cellar. Combining tradition and elegance, the bottle design highlights shades of topaze with hints of antique gold of this rare Cognac. In a subtle beauty, the presentation case is a perfect reminder of the oak that recalls the rigor and care bestowed upon the Cognac within.
