C By CourvoisierDEERFIELD, Ill., Feb. 1, 2012 — Courvoisier, the cognac house of Beam Inc., announced today the addition of C by Courvoisier to its award-winning portfolio. A bold, revolutionary cognac, C by Courvoisier is full of attitude, boasting a daring, intense flavor profile that stands out from the crowd and showcases a new side of cognac.

C by Courvoisier offers consumers an innovative, new option in the cognac category. An intense blend of small-batch-produced cognac specially selected from 50 winegrowers in the Fin Bois Cru, C by Courvoisier is carefully crafted by the house’s master blender and goes through a double-barrel aging process to produce a smooth, full-bodied taste experience.

“The liquid is first aged in young barrels to bring out a strong, wood character and give it a full-bodied, intense flavor,” said Patrice Pinet, Master Blender for Courvoisier. “It is then aged in mature barrels to round out the taste profile and deliver a silky finish. With hints of carnation, orange peel, clove, toast and crusty bread in its flavor profile, it is best served chilled for a truly unforgettable experience.”

C by Courvoisier:

  • Is made with an intense blend of small-batch-produced cognac, specially selected from 50 winegrowers in the Fin Bois Cru.
  • Offers a bold new taste experience that is perfect for a night out with the guys.
  • Has a flavor profile boasting a rich, intense character with a good balance between floral, fruity aromas and wood, with notes of carnation, orange peel, clove, toast and crusty bread for a bold drinking experience.
  • Is double-barreled for a strong character with a smooth finish.
  • Is packaged in Courvoisier’s iconic Josephine bottle.
  • Has an ABV of 40% / 80 Proof.
  • Offers consumers a new and exciting spirit option to be enjoyed on every occasion.

C by Courvoisier joins the recently released Courvoisier Rose, a lower-ABV liquid that combines the house’s premium cognac with French Red wine grapes for a refreshing drinking experience, and the 2010 release of the Courvoisier Connoisseur Collection- the first cognacs with a declared age statement from any of the four major cognac houses. Like the Courvoisier Connoisseur Collection and Courvoisier Rose, C by Courvoisier is yet another example of the innovative and revolutionary spirit that has defined the cognac house since the time of Napoleon.

C by Courvoisier will be available nationwide beginning February, 2012. A 750ml bottle has a suggested retail price of $34.99.

    It’s actually quite interesting that Courvoisier picks Fins Bois eaux-de-vie for this – very “brut” and rather rough.. not made for staying very long in the barrel. “C b courvoisier” is obviuously the US market answer to Hennessy Black, Remy V and Conjure.. let’s see how it plays out.
