Take the tour! ......You get taken along the Charente in a comfortable river boat to the warehouses where there is a number of different mediums set up to teach you about the involved processes.
Our tour guide was brilliant, a German lady with a fantastic grasp of both French and English and she explained everything very clearly in English and always checked for understanding. The tour group was small - probably 15 of us. Nice, reserved clientele.
The best bit of course was the tasting back at the bar at HQ. XO with a piece of dark chocolate. Don't mind if we do! The tour takes an hour but give yourself an hour and a half just in case you want to browse and buy afterwards.
Within a 5 minute stroll we were along the cobbled pavements behind Hennessey and in the centre of Cognac itself.
Worthwhile, informative and a fun thing to do!
