Cognac is a brandy that is double distilled from white wine. About 90% of the grapes used are Ugni Blanc. The Cognac producing region is divided into six areas: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bon Bois, Bois Ordinaires et Bois Communs. The process of distilling cognac has two parts; in the first, a raw eaux-de-vie is produced. In the second, only the heart is saved and the head and tail are either discarded or re-processed. After cask ageing, the eaux de vies are then blended to achieve their differing styles/brands. The age listed on the label is for the youngest spirit used in the Cognac, dating from the year of harvest.
