EXSTO Cognac World-wide Debut



We're excited to launch Exsto Cognac, and we would like to invite you to join us for an evening of exquisite cognac tasting, tasty canapes, and good company.


Join in and celebrate with us from 4pm onwards.

Julie Dupouy, one of the world's best sommeliers, and Sabrina Duong, founder of EXSTO Cognac will share about their journey making the EXSTO Cognacs, Elixir and OR Imperial, and how they are redefining tradition.

6.30pm or 7.30pm Cognac Appreciation Workshop with Julie Dupouy.

This hands-on, experiential masterclass will see guests learning to distinguish cognacs from other brown liquids, immerse in the aromas and nuances of EXSTO Cognac, and discover how to appreciate cognacs with certain food pairings.

The Sommelier’s Touch — Redefining Tradition

In the wine-growing region surrounding the town of Cognac, white grapes ripen on hillslopes warmed by the summer sun. Only the finest grapes are fermented and then slowly double distilled to create eaux de vie – a brandy spirit with the complexity and depth of a fine wine unique to the craft of Cognac.

Guided by EXSTO’s Master Blender Géraud Vallantin-Dulac, EXSTO sommelier and aroma connoisseur Julie Dupouy chose to work with 15 small producers from the Cognac region, selecting only eight of the best eaux de vie, all of which have spent decades aging in rare, French oak barrels.

These eaux de vie were produced in the top three terroirs of the Cognac region: Grande-Champagne and Petite-Champagne, revered for their ultra-fine, floral characters, and Borderies, the smallest of the six crus, famed for producing rare, smooth and voluptuous eaux de vie with a delicate violet aroma.

Together with Géraud, Julie has created a vital, complex blend which expresses the nuances of each eaux-de vie while synergising their distinctive qualities.

The result? A modern, elegant Cognac with a sensual, lively spirit.
