Rare Delamain Vintage Cognac

We are delighted to have uncovered a rare selection of Delamain’s Vintage Cognac spanning over two decades between the 1960s and the late 1980s. Established by an Irishman and with a rich history amongst the British aristocracy, Delamain is able to trace its roots back to the very beginning of Cognac and is one of the oldest, finest and most respected Cognac producers on earth, as the critics attest:


“The epitome of a no-BS, quality-only, highly reputed French house. It’s probably the brand that you’ll see the most in ** or *** Michelin restaurants… Delamain is one of the greatest names in Cognac.” – Serge Valentin, WhiskyFun


“One of the historic greats… The resultant cognacs have a unique elegance.” – Nicholas Faith, Decanter


“This is an old, distinguished family firm, and it maintains an aristocratic approach.” – Wine Spectator


This family-run business carefully selects eaux-de-vie from only the finest micro-terroirs of Grande Champagne sites (the Grand Cru of Charente) and nothing is bought before having been tasted; making their outturn the sublimely intense (Wine Enthusiast) crème-de-la-crème. Experts in ageing and maturation, they never blend young and old Cognacs together, they produce nothing younger than XO and the final blends are aged only in seasoned barrels and never new oak, leading to a supremely balanced, complex and elegant style.


In 1962 it was decided that Cognac could no longer bear a vintage on the label, and this wasn’t overturned until 1989, provided the exact age of the stock could be proven. As a result, vintage Cognac with this kind of age is rare. However, Delamain kept detailed records, handed the keys of their cellar to Customs officials and later the Fraud Office, and have had their stock meticulously Carbon dated. Each of these bottles is hand labelled and, in the house’s words, they are: dedicated to true connoisseurs.”
