When you arrive in the small town of Cognac you immediately smell what it’s famous for. Many distilleries give the air a heady scent.
Most people are here for visiting one or more of the cognac chais. Most of them are situated on the Grand Rue which winds through the old centre. One of the best to visit is Hennesy a major name in brandy-land and run by a family of Irish origin. Hennesy has some 200,000 barrels of true cognac in stock.
