Leopold Raffin started making cognac in 1889. His great-great grandson, Bertrand Laclie, is making it in his name today, beautifully, in a manner that is winning awards. In the process, he has reinvented his company and this is what we admire most about him. His forefathers made fine cognac for other people’s brands. One day, those people decided the Laclies were not needed anymore. Bertrand decided he would rather honor his ancestor than close up the business, and so he did by refocusing his resources on branding Leopold Raffin. Today, his cognacs are as fine as any in the world.

The Napoleon is one of their finest cognacs. The dark mahogany hue with deep red tones belies the sweet, light flavors of cinnamon and gingerbread, accented with notes of dried plums and eucalyptus. The afterglow lingers gently, ending with a spiced apricot finish.

Cognac is considered one of the finest of distilled spirits. All Cognac comes the town the product is named after, in the South West of France, and is distilled mostly from the Ugni Blanc grape variety. Cognac has an almost unique ability amongst spirits to impart a diversity of fruitiness, whether fresh or dried, along with a subtle warming spiciness with great concentration and length.
