This 8-hour tour takes you from the towns of Angoulême or Saintes, for an immersion into the discreet world of Cognac with its famous brands, craft cognac producers and their side businesses. You will tour with an English speaking 'Cognac Educator', certified by the 'Cognac Interprofession Association - BNIC', who will take you from the vine to the glass, through the rich history of this region whose marks can still be seen in the architecture and scenery. You will visit a famous Cognac brand where you are explained the various stages involved in producing a cognac, and then taste some of the products with a explanation on how to taste a cognac, and how to pair it with some food.  You will meet local people and craft distillers, whose families have produced Cognacs for generations.
