In figures just in, the past 12 months have seen the sales of cognac doing very nicely indeed.

In terms of volume, worldwide sales are up 12%, but when this is converted to cold hard cash, this shows a staggering increase of 25% over the last twelve months.  And the great thing is that sales on a global scale have all seen meteoric rises.

Cognac Growth

Far East sales are up 22%, Europe 10.4% and North America and Mexico are up a respectable 4% in terms of volume.

Although Asia is still by far the largest market, it appears that whilst the global economic crisis is still gaining a cautious recovery, cognac appears to be one of the most sought after commodities – wherever in the world you may live.
