Behind Cognac Bowen is a charming, romantic adventure - a cognac distilled especially for a woman. The story of Cognac Bowen is closely intertwined with the story of Cognac Chabasse, whose owner at the turn of the century was Louis Olivier Chabasse .
Cognac Bowen - or also where love falls to
Louis Olivier was travelling in India when he met Elisabeth Bowen . A young woman from England whose family owned a farm near Pondicerry. He brought all his knowledge, skill and passion to distill an aromatic, refined cognac for Elisabeth - he succeeded and so this cognac bears the name of the young woman Bowen.
To this day, everyone can now enjoy these aromatic cognacs. The great-grandson René-Luc Chabasse continues Cognac Bowen in the spirit of his great-grandfather.
Origin and terroir of Bowen cognacs
Grapes from the following regions around Cognac are used for Cognac Bowen's brandies:

In addition to the most common grape variety in the Charente, Ugni Blanc, Piquepoul and Colombard grapes are also used for Bowen's cognacs.
Cognac production process
The production of Cognac takes place in the so-called double distillation process, in which a base wine with just 8% by volume is distilled twice. In the first pass a brandy with approx. 30 vol.-% is produced, in the second the so-called "heart" with up to 70 % alcohol content. These eaux-de-vie are stored in Limousin oak barrels at Cognac Bowen and then blended to produce the final product.
