Cognac Shop, Geelong

For a tasteful brandy, you can’t go past cognac. The drink is well-known and favoured around the world for its unique fruity warmth, and intense flavour, perfect to be savoured over time. Wine {Domaine} is pleased to be the premier cognac shop in Geelong.

We pride ourselves on offering unparalleled local expertise in selecting the right cognac. Our owner Dale Cooper has first-hand knowledge, having studied at the famous Hennessy Academy in France.

Named after the region in France where the grapes are grown, cognac must pass rigorous requirements to legally be called such, including the selection of particular grapes and distillation methods. There is an official grading system to determine the quality of the cognac, ranging through:

  • V.S. “very special”
  • V.S.O.P “very superior old pale” or Reserve
  • X.O “extra old” or Napoleon
  • Hors d’âge “beyond age”.

Cognac, with its richly intense flavour is most widely used as a digestif, served after dinner and made to sip. Fittingly for a liquor crafted so diligently, there are two types of specifically designed cognac glasses – tulip glasses or balloon glasses, both named for their shape, and with the express purpose of concentrating the bouquet so it wafts up towards the nose of the drinker.

Wine {Domaine} is also pleased to offer a range of glassware and decanters in our Geelong store, so you can enjoy your cognac the way it should be enjoyed.

If you prefer to buy your cognac online, we have a wide selection available, or you can contact us for more information.
