The Best Cognacs Under $75

Cognac, the favored drink of Victor Hugo, Winston Churchill and most big-name rappers, often seems to be reserved for only the most elite — and wealthy — individuals, and out of the reach of the everyman. This does not need to be the case. Like many bottles of the finest single-malt Scotch, there are a variety of Cognacs available under $75 that are sure to turn heads. Whether hailing from Grande Champagne, Petit Champagne or Borderies, each of the Cognacs on GAYOT's list showcases a deep connection to its namesake land, expressing characteristics and personality traits that come directly from the soil. We have created our list of the Top 10 Affordable Cognacs because we believe whole-heartedly that Cognac should be a drink of the people.
