Camus Cognac has unveiled Jubilee 5.50. The extremely rare, limited-edition offering captures the story of Cyril Camus and his family, who has run the Cognac Maison for five generations.
The Camus Jubilee 5.50 blend is the culmination of a complex operation aimed at bringing out the organoleptic qualities of five exceptional cognacs by blending them without masking them, just as elementary colors complement without overpowering each other.
Drawing his inspiration from a 1971 Cognac de Petite Champagne distilled 50 years ago and sourced from the family reserve, Camus’ Cellar Master chose to blend five cognacs, each characterized by floral, fruity, gourmet, and rancio notes. These aromatic notes reflect the most distinctive aromas of Cognac in its purest form. Jubilee 5.50 was born from the alliance of these five Cognacs. In a superb amber color, these five exceptional eaux-de-vie shine with their unique personality and perfect expression.
The intense nose evokes a marriage of plums and dates, subtly sprinkled with white blossom. At the first sip, we taste the sweetness of currants, leading us through an oriental market where the freshness and delicacy of green tea come together. The long, fresh finish is even more delicate, with notes of aged citrus fruits discreetly followed by hints of roasted hazelnuts.
Camus will only release 50 bottles of Jubilee 5.50. The brand chose fifty as it symbolizes harmony, creativity and open-mindedness in a constantly changing world.
Made from 6060 aluminum tube, usually used in the boating and aeronautics industries, the Jubilee 5.50 display cases feature a contemporary design for the Cognac. More than a case, it is a ritual in itself. The time zones carved around the metal frame expose the crystal decanter. The Héritage Paraison decanter, created in 1931 by Georges Chevallier, highlights the beauty of Cognac. Its pure form captures the light like never before. Its elegant base is designed to match the bottle’s generous curves. It is like a timeless chalice, preserving the precious Cognac for future generations.
In total, only 45 unique display will be produced, with the other 5 decanters being offered as part of Camus’ 78,000€ ($87,950 USD) tasting table.
Camus Jubilee 5.50 is priced at 29,800€ ($33,600 USD). For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
In September, Camus revamped its Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac to showcase its unique island origin. The expression is a rare example of a single-provenance Cognac.
Earlier this year, we caught up with Camus Global Brand Manager Pier Paolo Catucci to discuss Camus’ Return to Saint-Aulaye.
