St Rémy – signature

St-Rémy is the 100% French brandy that has been around since 1886. This new signature is the first from their new Master Blender Cécile Roudaut, and her St-Rémy Signature is being called the new face for brandy.

With this blend, Cécile wanted to explore new production processes, experimenting with a unique double maturation process. The first maturation in new oak casks delivers spiced notes, indulgence, and vivacity, while the second maturation in traditional casks balances the blend with roundness and sweetness. This is one seriously innovative drink for brandy fans.
