A French grape brandy made from a blend of distilled French wines.
Known as Raynal in some markets and Three Barrels in Britain, this is the leading brand of French non-appellation grape brandy with annual sales over 2.5 million bottles. The Three Barrels name derives from 19th century Canada where three barrels were the most that huskies could pull on a sledge.
This “Intense Heat Cask Finish” limited edition Cordon Bleu bottling was released in October 2016. As with regular Cordon Bleu it is blended from over a hundred extra old eau-de-vie but is finished in casks that have been heavily charred – intensely heated if you will.
This “Extra” bottling (with blue label and silver box) should not be confused with the original Cordon Bleu (with white label and blue box), which is confusingly also labelled “extra old”. Cordon Bleu Extra is differentiated by containing an even more generous portion of very old Borderies cognacs.
