Branson Cognac Phantom V.S. 50 Cent Cognac
Blended by 5th generation, family run producer Cognac Raymond Ragnaud, who has been in Grande Champagne since 1860, Branson Phantom represents the finest example of Cognac for anyone to enjoy. Sourced from top vineyards in the Borderies and Fin Bois regions, and then aged for 2-3 years at a minimum, Phantom drinks like a VSOP due to the meticulous care taken at every step. With a golden brown color and notes of light citrus, apple and tobacco, Phantom has a balanced finish that is smooth with just the right amount of burn.
Owned by award-winning musician, entrepreneur, actor and producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Branson Cognac represents a bespoke, exclusive and unique Cognac that showcases the highest quality of Cognac being made from the best vineyards in every bottle.
Branson embodies the history and knowledge with classic production techniques to produce artisanal Cognacs. The methods used in the vineyards have one singular goal and focus – harvest the best quality and purest Ugni Blanc. Once all the grapes are hand-picked, the grapes are pressed and fermented in vats. The wine is then distilled on the lees that results in elegant and fragrant aromas Distillation is done in traditional pot stills some being many decades old. As the wine is heated, the alcohol evaporates and rises through the neck of the still and is then cooled to a liquid. This liquid is distilled again to purify it, which at that time becomes an Eaux-de-Vie.
