Branson Cognac X.O. 50 Cent Cognac
Blended by 5th generation, family run producer Cognac Raymond Ragnaud, who has been in Grande Champagne since 1860, Branson XO provides the most exquisite expression of XO Grande Champagne Cognac. Created from Eaux-de-Vie grown in the premier terroir of the region, Grande Champagne, this Cognac is aged for a minimum of 10 years, with some of the Eaux-de-Vie being 25+ years old. The Cognac is deep brown with a bronze hue. Elegant and complex, with almost no burn, floral and citrus notes balance seamlessly with hints of tobacco, honey, and chocolate that continue through an incredibly long finish.
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.
