Camus Cognac, the largest independently owned producer of Cognac in the world, has launched its latest Cuvee 5.150 Cognac to celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary. Limited Edition Decanter was especially designed to commemorate the house’s anniversary and five generations that has led the brand, starting from its founder Jean-Baptiste, to present President Cyril Camus.
This special Cognac is limited to only 1,492 pieces, each bottled in an individually numbered Baccarat crystal decanter and presented in a gift box along with two tasting glasses, with a suggested retail price of $13,500.
The first 150 will also include a 100ml numbered sample. This miniature is a rare opportunity to own the very last sample taken by the cellar master just before the decanters were filled, and that are usually reserved for the Camus Cognac library.
What you can except from the taste is a blend of a five rare eaux-de-vie from from five Cognac growing regions, including Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Fin Bois, Bon Bois and Borderies Cognacs.
“When you taste an exceptional cognac, you are left with a lasting memory, and this is precisely what we were thinking of when we blended the Cuvee 5.150,” notes Cyrus Camus, president of the family firm. “In our 150th year, we wanted to be respectful of our past while resolutely looking towards our future. The Cuvée 5.150 is a tribute to how each generation has built on the skills of the previous one and breathed new life into enduring traditions.”
