Kim and Godfred Birkedal Hartmann, in order to refill the original bottles of De Haartman Cognac finally were able to find the exquisite fine cognac that will be as identic as the original noble drops from the beginning of the 1900.
As we all know, cognac does not age in glass. Therefore the original De Haartman Cognac after spending 102 years, 80 meters in the Baltic Sea would not have aged.
However, our cognac from 1900 have been aged in oak cask for many years until it was transfered into Dame Jeanne, 25 liters glass bottles.
Obviously, when reaching a alcohol degree of a bit above 40%Vol. the cognac needs to be isolated in glass.
