The Best Cognacs Under $75

Cognac, the preferred drink of Victor Hugo, Winston Churchill and many big-name rappers today, is generally thought of as a beverage reserved for the elite. However, with the current spirits and cocktail renaissance, there are plenty of reasonably priced — and incredibly satisfying — Cognacs available. While the major names are all present on our list, we also made sure to include new and lesser-known houses worthy of attention. Whether hailing from Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne or Borderies, each of these featured Cognacs proves that an attractive price point and high quality can go hand in hand. Take a look at our Top 10 Cognacs, which include the best bottles for under $75, plus details on which desserts are best paired with the spirit.
