Reviews of purchase Tiffon, "Braastad" XO Superior, gift box, 0.7 L
The cognac has a beautiful amber color with red highlights.
Generous, balanced taste of cognac is filled with notes of dried fruits, vanilla, sweet spices and pleasant shades of caramel in a persistent, soft aftertaste.
The complex aroma of the wine is revealed by tones of raisins, dried fruits, spices, vanilla and grain coffee.
Cognac is an excellent digestif and goes well with cigars, coffee and lemon wedges.
"Braastad" XO Superior is a cognac created from spirits from four different regions: Grande and Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fine Bois. Each of the selected alcohols was aged in cellars for 15 to 25 years.
"Braastad" XO Superior was the first cognac from the XO Superior series to take part in the "International Wine and Spirit Competition" in London in 2007, and Richard Braastad was awarded a silver medal .
Tiffon Cognac House - the largest family business in the Cognac region - was founded in 1875 by Mederic Tiffon in the town of Jarnac, located on the banks of the Charente River in the heart of the region. In 1913, the founder's granddaughter, Edith Russo-Tiffon, married the Norwegian Sverre Braastad, who at the age of 20 moved to Jarnak, where his uncle, Halfdan Braastad, worked as a financial manager at Cognac Biscuit. Sverre Braastad worked there as a sales representative.
After the First World War, Sverre left Cognac Biscuit in order to open a family business for the production of cognac. In 1919 he registered "Cognac Tiffon SA". In 1946, Sverre bought the Château de Triac, where he settled with his wife and eight children. Until his last days (Sverre lived 100 years and died in 1979) Braastad ran the company and passed on the experience accumulated over the years to his children and grandchildren.
Today, the Tiffon house owns 100 hectares of vineyards in the Grand Champagne and Feng Bois zones, where white grape varieties are grown - Ugni Blanc (95%), Colombard (4%) and Folle Blanche (1%). Our own distilleries, located in Jarnac and Chateau de Triac, can process 500 hectoliters of wine per day into alcohol. In addition to its own grapes, raw materials are used that are purchased from local winegrowers. In the cellars of the Tiffon cognac house there are 15,000 barrels with a capacity of 350 liters, made of French oak Limousin and Troncais. This amount of aged cognac spirits is enough to produce twenty million bottles of cognac.
