By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Lovers of cognac in Nigeria who have yearned for long to have a taste of a quality drink do not have to worry again as the premium quality cognac, Sainte Croix, is now in the country.

The brand was brought into Nigeria by Punch Marketing and at an exclusive event held to present the brand to Nigerian consumers in Lagos on June 17, 2021, it was stressed that Sainte Croix delivers the best cognac experience that the Charente and Charente-Maritime regions of France have come to be known for.

The company described the introduction of Sainte Croix into the Nigerian market as the arrival of the French cognac heritage to the country.

The company’s Country Manager (Nigeria), Mr Chris Parkes, said Sainte Croix has been made with passion since 1756 and celebrated around the world.

“Cognac is a native of France and named after the town of Cognac, which is about 250 miles south of Paris.

“Sainte Croix is a proud ambassador of this origin, delivering the same top quality that has distinguished Cognac and France from every other country that produces brandies. This is the heritage that the brand is bringing to the Nigerian market,” he assured.

He referred to Sainte Croix as a masterpiece, for connoisseurs and friends, saying that the superb quality that the brand has been associated with and celebrated across the world over the centuries, is an attestation to the quantum of patience and meticulousness that go into the making of Saint Croix, it is truly the spirit of courage. He painted the picture of the rigorous process that goes into the making Sainte Croix thus:

“We pick only the finest mature white grapes at the annual harvest to ensure that the white wines that are produced from them are perfect.

“These selected wines are distilled twice to create the flawless eau-de-vie variants and only the boldest and distinctive variants are selected to be placed in aged wooden barrels for a minimum of not two years as is normal for VS but for four years. VSOP is not just the normal 4 years but eight and the XO… not just 15 years but 30.
