    Very fun visit and not only due to the tastings. The staff is incredibly friendly and fun and give a small tour explaining the process of distilling. The products are all tasty so get ready to make some hard choices as what to leave behind.

    A must see/taste stop... Staff took their time to show us how the cognac was made and gave us samples... Let's just say we left with a few bottles!
