Considered to be the Most Awarded Cognac House, Maison Courvoisier presents Courvoisier Mizunara, an exceptional blend that offers a complex and unique experience. This daring blend of cognac is made by Courvoisier’s Sixth Chief Blender Patrice Pinet and Fifth-Generation Chief Blender of the House of Suntory, Shinji Fukuyo. They discovered similarities in the process of precise oak selection and aging in both cognac and Japanese whisky to create Courvoisier Mizunara. Through the unique traditions in each of their disciplines, the cognac represents a visionary blend that unites craft, culture and people.
It has been an exciting journey working alongside Patrice to discover a new, unique taste profile of Courvoisier using Japanese Mizunara oak. I have always been fascinated by experimenting with flavors through innovation, and I’m very excited to have taken part in the development of Courvoisier Mizunara and to help create something never before tasted. – Shinji Fukuyo
Courvoisier Mizunara is made using Grand Champagne – the most prestigious cru from the Cognac region. This rare cognac first aged in French oak barrels and was then transferred to one of House of Suntory’s award-winning Mizunara casks made of superior Japanese Mizunara wood for a second maturation resulting in an exceptionally harmonious and aromatic cognac.
Memorable blends begin in the imaginations of those who dare to dream them. I have always been intrigued by the scarcity and uniqueness of Japanese Mizunara oak and honored by the opportunity to work with the legendary wood and the incredibly talented Shinji Fukuyo of House of Suntory. We are living in two different countries with two different cultures, but deeply connected in our values and respect for our artistry. I knew the Mizunara cask was an unconventional choice for Courvoisier and together with Shinji, we saw the potential for the notoriously temperamental wood to enhance the unique characteristics of the exceptional cognac and complement the Maison’s signature floral House style. – Patrice Pinet
An extremely limited release of 500 bottles of Courvoisier Mizunara will be available in select countries for $2000 USD. Each bottle showcases the golden mahogany tone of the liquid with a legendary Japanese Mizunara oak tree garnished across the front in gold and is numbered to signify the rarity of the exquisite blend.
