Chef Andre´ Rochat’s cognac and armagnac collection is practically unfathomable.
Cognac and armagnac aficionados from all over the world find their way to us simply because they want to see – with their own eyes – how practically unfathomable it is.
The largest cognac collection in Las Vegas, and ranking in the top 3 in North America for sheer size, Andre´ Rochat remains unrivaled in the number of rare cognacs and armagnacs offered in his 9-page cognac and fine spirits menu.
Take, for instance our …
• Jacques Hardy, Private Reserve, Vintage 1777, at $35,000/bottle (there are just 4 bottles in the world)
• Courvoisier Succesion J.L.
• Hardy, Perfection
• J. Chapoulie, Legendaire, 98 Year Armagnac
Add to that THREE full sets of the famed Erte´ Courvoisier Cognac Collection – each consisting of eight bottles – and you begin to see the real depth of Andre’s cognac collection.
(A little known fact: The original Erte´ series was a commission of the famous Russian-born artist for 7 bottles; Courvoisier released 12,000 of those. Then, the cognac company released a special 8th bottle in 1994 in limited distribution of just 4,000 bottles. This 8th bottle was intended to be their first release back in 1988, but it wasn’t approved for distribution in the U.S. at that time because of the image of an Art Deco naked woman on the front. It’s estimated that just a few hundred collectors in the world own the entire 8-bottle Erte set.)
We offer 100-year-old and 200-year-old cognac by the glass
Other rare collections within Andre’s collection are the series of Vintage cognacs from the Jacques Hardy Private Reserves. As mentioned earlier, we have a single bottle of the 1777 vintage available for $35,000. We also pour vintages by the shot, from 1802 through 1914. (In fact, Andre’s cognac collection contains the largest selection of Hardy Cognacs outside the family’s collection.) Additionally, vintage ports begin with the 1966 Sandeman and the oldest Madeira on hand.
Just in case you’re feeling overwhelmed …
