The Best Cognacs of 2017
It’s award time again. The renowned International Wine & Spirits Competition (ISWC) held in London has announced the winners for 2017’s Best Cognacs.
The medals are awarded in three categories for Cognac–Bronze, Silver, and Gold–with the added bonus ‘Outstanding’ in each medal range.
It’s exciting to see more and more Cognac brands realizing the importance of entering their creations into such competitions. After all, being judged against your fellow Cognac houses in similar categories must be nerve wracking and elating at once when your pride and joy is bestowed with an award.
