Delamain Cognac – The 67 Edition is a Grande Champagne Cognac blended by Delamain’s cellar master Dominique Touteau and selected by 67 Pall Mall’s CEO, Grant Ashton. The blend includes vintage Cognac from 1967 united with other exceptional Grande Champagne Cognacs.
The 67 Edition offers “a beguiling combination of delicate sophistication and depth,” according to the club. On the nose are aromas of pear and fresh fig layered with buttery brioche and raisins. On the palate are rich, mellow flavours of fig jam, ending with the slightest autumnal notes.
“I immensely enjoyed the journey of marrying the 1967 with the elegance and finesse of selected old Grande Champagne Cognacs; these were chosen to both showcase the jewel and because they could be enriched by the remarkable maturity of the 1967’,” said Touteau.
Presented in a 67 Pall Mall gift box, the Cognac can be purchased in varying formats with the option to engrave. A 70cl bottle costs £195 ($256 USD).
The private members’ club possesses a wine list of over 5,000 bins from 42 countries, 800 of which are offered by the glass. They are set to open a sister location in Singapore next spring.
At the end of September, Delamain Cognac unveiled Pale & Dry Centenaire to celebrate the expression’s 100th anniversary. The new expression from the Jarnac-based house is an evolution of the brand’s iconic Pale & Dry Cognac blend.
“Our arrival at the 100-year mark and celebration of the Pale & Dry century has been a deeply personal experience,” noted Charles Braastad, managing director at Delamain. “Pale & Dry has, for more than my entire life and beyond, defined who we are at Delamain and what we aspire to be.
“Change is not something that we approach casually at Delamain, but nor is complacency. As we delved into the what and why of Pale & Dry we re-acquainted ourselves with the fundamental principles of who we are as a house. Centenaire is both a tribute to, and an evolution of Pale & Dry and the ethos bequeathed to our team by Jacques and Robert Delamain. It embodies the past, our present and our future and we are proud not only to be sharing generations of my family wisdom but to be writing this new chapter in the history of our iconic cognac.”
