The History of our Cognac

Bōnfun is a unique, wine-infused cognac made from lightly fermented, premium wine grapes blended with cognac. Bōnfun is produced in Fin Bois, a wine producing sub-region within the Cognac appellation.

THE GROWTH OF OUR GRAPES

The Fins Bois growing region widely regarded as producing some of the finest (fins) quality grapes, characterized by their floral, fruity softness which adds complexity and body to blends. Bōnfun’s grapes are organically grown to ensure proper nutrient absorption and a flavor reflective of the pure soil.

THE DISTILLATION PROCESS

Bōnfun’s cognac is carefully distilled twice to isolate the “heart” of the liquid. The wine grapes are pressed and the juice is allowed to ferment naturally before infusing into the cognac. No sugar is added at any point in the process.

THE INFUSION OF WINE

Cognacs from varying vintages are infused with wine from grapes grown in Cognac, France. Some also receive an additional infusion of all-natural floral essences (in the cases of Bōnfun Jasmine and Bōnfun Elderflower) from Grasse, France.

The Aging of Bonfun
THE AGING OF BONFUN

The wine-infused cognac is stored in carefully selected 100 year-old Limousin oak barrels for least 36 months, culminating in Bonfun. The whole process is carefully monitored in our warehouse in Cognac, France.
