From grape to glass, it takes an incredible transformation to make cognac. In the second instalment of Cognac Essentials, explore the tightly regulated, yet passionate process of creating this famous spirit.

Cognac is made from distilling white wine to create eau-de-vie, ageing it in oak barrels for a minimum of two years and then blending different eaux-de-vie to create a specific flavour.
