Cognac sales up by over 10%
Here's another positive announcement for the region. The Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac (BNIC) say that there was an increase of around 160 million bottles over the previous year.
You can see a breakdown of the statistics here with sales in Asia increasing by 24%.
I know so many people involved in the industry that it's cheering to see such good results.
From my friend Christian Martin who's family have owned the 33 hectares at the little known Chez Bacou since records began to Christian Guerin who is cellar master at one of the leading Cognac houses it's nice to know that some businesses are still thriving in these uncertain times.
