Quick Overview:

Reminiscent of exotic and far away places the Charentais Alembic still is considered the most beautiful and graceful of all alembics. Unlike the majority of the other alembics, the charentais stills evolved in the Cognac region of France in the early XVI century when the acidy white Charente wines from this region were first distilled into brandy.
