The name Pale & Dry is related to the pale color, the word “dry” refers to the sweet character of the Cognac. Delamain Pale And Dry XO Cognac¬†was introduced as a product in 1920, and represents 80% of the company’s production. The blend consists of selected eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne region producers and growers. Delamain Pale and Dry XO Cognac consists of reduced 15% ABV “weak” or “vieilles faibles” cognac, that is blended with about 53% ABV stronger cognac. This blend is then again aged in Limousin oak casks to create a final balance.
With an incredibly old family tradition, Delamain (et Cie) makes for an exciting cognac house with roots dating back to the early 1600s! The family tree couldn’t be more complicated, and yet the Delamain brand has managed to survive since its creation in 1762. This is a cognac house that is unapologetic when it comes to quality, selecting only the very best from its suppliers in order to create its own products. With the British aristocracy having influenced the Delamains for generations, this cognac is authentically catered for blue blood!
Delamain Pale and Dry XO Cognac is a fragrant, delicate blend of 25 year old Grand champagne Cognacs. Perfectly balanced with a long dry finish.
