This time a German reader sent us photos of an unkown bottle for the “You’ve got a bottle?” section – an import bottle. The  Cognac Poitiers was given to the reader by her brother from Germany. It was a marrage gift for love and good luck.

“Cognac Französisches Erzeugnis” one reads on the label, means product of french origin.

Cognac Poitiers VS

As the reader’s birthday is on May 1st, her brother thought it was special. But the May 1st note is a reference to the general Cognac ‘bill’ (decret) of 1909 – and not the age.

label of Poitiers Cognac

Regarding age, it’s a three star: Means this Cognac is at least 2 and a half years old.

Cognac VS Poitiers

There is no back label. The front label says 3*** Cognac Poitiers, Produce of France, Poitiers Jonzac France. “Le cognac poitiers est produit naturel des vins recoltes et distilles dans 40 les tout premiers crus de la region de cognac definie par le decret du 1er mai 1909 cognac”

If there is anyone who can give some insights about the exact origin, the producer or similar – it would be highly appreciated.
