The grapes for this blend are grown exclusively in Grande Champagne, recognized as the premiere growing region of Cognac and known for producing fine and delicate eaux-de-vie that have exceptional aging potential, often requiring many years to develop full aromatic richness. After spending one year aging in new oak barrels, the eaux-de-vie are transferred to used oak with medium toast, spending a minimum of 20 years aging prior to blending.
The Cognac Park brand was created in 1995 and, at that time, was a new project between the Tessendier family and Dominic Park, a Scotsman who sought out the Tessendier family for their generations of experience in the Cognac trade. The distillery itself was founded in 1880, when Gaston Tessendier tended his family vineyards located in the prestigious growing area of the Borderies, acting on his ambition to create outstanding Cognac. Single-mindedly, Gaston learned to work his vineyards and later, with the help of his son, began distillation of his wines. The company has remained in the Tessendier family through four generations. Today, the current family estate remains at Domaine Du Buisson, its original site, housing the family’s vineyards and winery. It is composed of more than 25 hectares in the heart of one of the most exclusive growing regions, the Borderies.
