Courvoisier is one of the top 4 cognac houses, and now released a limited edition for the Chinese New Year: L’Essence de Courvoisier du Dragon.
The Essence de Courvoisier is an existing product by the Jarnac house, one would say, “just the dragon” is a new element.
A dragon Cognac by Courvoisier
Courvoisier releases 500 bottles of the dragon bottle around the world.
The original bottle of L’Essence de Courvoisier was released in 2009. The content in the decanter: A blend of 100 different eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne and Borderies.
The decanter is from famous artisan Baccarat, the dragon hand engraved – in gold.
By the way, here is an update! We just found out: It’s not the first time Courvoisier launched such a bottle, if it’s not a fake.
Back in 2000, the cognac house produced a whole blend just for the new year, called Courvoisier, Year of the Dragon, Special Blend. The fact that the 2000′ bottle was a specific blend, in other words, made for the new year – makes this item quite interesting.
The L’Essence de Courvoisier du Dragon bottle is the same blend as Essence, “just” with a golden dragon on the bottle.
The 2000 bottle came in a wooden box and was only available in the Far East. A description inside the box reads:
“I am very enjoyed to introduce Dragon which is the result of a very interesting blend between the depth of the Champagnes origin and the spicy and smooth Borderies. I created this blend for the subtle appreciation of the Singapore and Far East consumers. Dragon is powerful neat, and keeps all its attributes after dilution with ice and water. I hope its discovery will be a great moment for you – Jean-Marc Olivier “.
