An architectural masterpiece inspired by the Gothic and Renaissance styles, the Royal Château de Cognac is throwing open its doors to allow visitors to discover its history and some of the secrets of how our Cognacs are made.
The tour begins in the historic part of the Château where visitors explore sumptuous rooms such as the State Room, where King Francois I's once received guests. This room is characterized by Renaissance architecture, very different to other parts of the Château which date back to the Middle Ages. The tour then moves on to the Château cellars, which offer exceptional ageing conditions for our Cognacs. Here, visitors are given a detailed explanation of how BARON OTARD Cognacs are made. The tour ends with a guided tasting* of BARON OTARD VSOP and XO Gold, our house's flagship Cognac, combining the finesse of fruity aromas with the smoothness of a hint of honey, enhanced by a touch of violet. The long period which these eaux-de-vie spend ageing in the Château cellars gives them their amber colour, the sign of a hugely distinguished Cognac.
