Last Minute Father's Day Gift Idea

A perfect last minute Father’s Day Gift comes from Camus Cognac…. Not only a fine Cognac, but one that has a “fatherly” tradition all its own, as it is now run by the fifth generation of sons, Cyril Camus; Cyril  in turn has two young sons . . . but it is too early to say if they will go into the business.  CAMUS Cognacs offer everything from the refreshing VS Elegance (SRP $24.00), which is great on the rocks; to the newest release, the Cuvée 5.150 (honoring the family-owned company’s 150th anniversary) which at $13,500 is for very special occasions indeed!  Another great option is a bottle of CAMUS XO Borderies (SRP:  $150), a single-vineyard blend from the family’s home vineyards, which was created by Cyril and his dad.

The CAMUS ELEGANCE range introduced a distinctive new flavour profile to the world of Cognac. Highlighting the floral characteristics of Borderies, the smallest of the Cognac producing regions (and in which CAMUS is one of the largest private landowners), the ELEGANCE range is distinctive, elegant, and smooth. Aged in barrels that have fewer tannins, therefore lessening the oak influence on the final blends, the range keeps and develops original personality of each eaux-de-vie composing the blend. The packaging, complete with innovative screw-cap closures on the VS & VSOP, has won awards including a Gold Medal at the 2006 Wine & Spirit Design Awards.
