Private members’ club 67 Pall Mall in London’s St James’s has launched its own house Cognac in collaboration with Delamain.
Called Delamain Cognac – The 67 Edition, the Grande Champagne Cognac was blended by Delamain’s cellar master Dominique Touteau and selected by 67 Pall Mall’s CEO, Grant Ashton.
The “rich, round and complex” blend includes vintage Cognac from 1967 along with exceptional old Grande Champagne Cognacs, and offers, according to Touteau, “a combination of delicate sophistication and depth”.
On the nose you’ll find aromas of “pear and fresh fig, layered with buttery brioche and raisins”, while on the palate are “rich, mellow flavours of fig jam”.
“I immensely enjoyed the journey of marrying the 1967 with the elegance and finesse of selected old Grande Champagne Cognacs; these were chosen to both showcase the jewel and because they could be enriched by the remarkable maturity of the 1967’,” Touteau said.
Delamain Cognac – The 67 Edition is available in 70cl bottles, 150cl magnums and 300cl double magnums housed in a 67 Pall Mall gift box. The 70cl bottle costs £195.
The private members’ club boasts a wine list of over 5,000 bins from 42 countries, 800 of which are on pour by the glass. A sister site is due to open in Singapore next spring.
