WILD is an eau de vie made of the best organically grown grapes from our family vineyard in the South West of France, the area that produces the finest brandies. With WILD, we are bringing back the forgotten drink that sailors and merchants from the 16th century were drinking long before anyone even thought to age eau de vie to create Cognac. The wine is distilled twice in traditional copper pot stills where the finest and strongest aromas are created.
Despite being firmly rooted in decades of Cognac craftsmanship, it enjoys the versatility, playfulness and lightness of touch of clear spirits and promises to attract a trendier, cooler, more adventurous consumer. Clear in colour but bold in zesty flavour, it is an exciting alternative to gin and vodka.
Designer and maker Christian Watson created superb lettering and illustrations on the bottle that nod to the history of our brand such as the portrait of Pierre Philippe Joubert, the founder of 1719, or the facing of our house.
