Delamain is one of only a few select Cognac 'houses' allowed to declare vintage cognacs, and all stock has a genuine cellar record to protect consumers from misleading practices. The family run house of Delamain is one of the oldest cognac producers, founded in 1762. Unlike most, they produce no VS or VSOP and reduce their bottle strengths down to 40% with faibles rather than with water.
Delamain was also one of the few houses to ship early landed cognacs into Bristol for ageing where dampness of storage is such an important aspect of ageing. These 'damp' English conditions make for a more delicate, refined drink than the equivalent casks aged in France, and typically display light floral and fruity aromas with subtle hints of wood. The vintage cognacs are produced exclusively from the Grande Champagne vineyards designated as the highest quality in the region.
