In the heart of the Charente area in western France lies the medieval town of Cognac. This lovely city is best-known for its "eau-de-vie" of the same name. Among the many people involved in the intricate production process, the cellar masters are responsible for safeguarding the timeless blends of their Cognac houses. Each cellar master will single-handedly taste, evaluate and compare hundreds of samples of eaux-de-vie to reach the perfect final combination. Cognac is a product of the senses. Discover the everyday life of a Cognac producer and his fascinating universe. After the visit of the cellars and a tasting session, explore the secrets of Cognac by discovering the production process and by creating your own Cognac. Most Cognacs are blends (a mix of different Cognacs). This workshop will help you become a master of blending. Create your own, custom Cognac guided by an expert: at the end of the workshop, you will take your bottle home with you… it even has your name on it! A unique experience that will help you understand all the secrets of this nectar.
