Welcome to a cognac like no other, born of man’s patience and Nature’s impetuousness. A cognac of highly distinctive maritime character that can only be produced when nature is at its most temperamental.
Situated in the westernmost part of the Cognac region, the Island of Ré is composed of calcareous and sandy soils naturally enriched in salt by centuries of fertilization with seaweed from the surrounding Atlantic ocean.
In very rare occasions a great storm will bring the ocean water inland, all the way to the vineyards and temporarily saturating the soil in salt and minerals. Grapes harvested in such year will produce a cognac of extraordinary maritime typicity.
Incorporating in its blend cognacs distilled following the great storm of 2010, CAMUS Dark & Stormy brings you a one-of-a-kind sensory experience, one that can only be created a very few times each century.
