Blend and Origin
The ageing process distinguishes X.O from our other blends. The eaux-de-vie are aged for a minimum of 10 years in mainly French oak barrels. Absorbing tannins from the wood, the cognac develops a uniquely satisfying character that is robust and rich, with incredible persistence.
Pair with light fish and vegetable dishes
Begin with a simple starter of oven-cooked king prawns.
A fillet of sea bass, served on a bed of buttery sautéed leeks, is a rich yet delicate complement.
A molten chocolate cake with custard alongside is a perfect match.
