This special blend has been created by Meukow’s Cellar Master, Anne Sarteaux. Aged for over two years, Meukow VS Black Panther Limited Edition Cognac uses eaux-de-vie from several grape growing areas, with a high proportion sourced from Grande and Petite Champagne. The result is a fruity, silky VS Cognac with an abundance of vanilla notes.
In order to always meet the high level of standard expected of Meukow Cognac, only the heart of the distillate is used for their eaux-de-vie. What follows is an aging process of at least two years in Limousin oak, lending rich woody flavors to the final product.
The history of Meukow dates back to the mid-19th Century, when brothers Gustav and August-Christophe Meukow from Silesia were sent to France in order to procure Cognac for the Russian Tsar Alexander II. After years of searching for the finest eaux-de-vie, they eventually decided to set up their own distillery in 1862. At first, their only customer was the Tsar himself, but the two brothers soon began to make Cognac of considerable quality, winning over the hearts of people around the world. Today, Meukow Cognac is available in over 80 countries. Cellar Master Anne Sarteaux has been with Meukow since 2007, preserving the traditional expertise that has been passed down from generation to generation.
The signature panther motif has adorned Meukow Cognac bottles since 1995 and thus become their unmistakeable trademark. For this reason, it’s often referred to as the ‘jaguar spirit’.
