Prestige Cognacs are the rarest and most legendary of all styles of brandy. This are the very finest spirits produced by a Cognac house, and will often command huge price tags. Popular examples include Hennessy's Richard Hennessy and Paradis, and Rémy Martin's Louis... XIII. Prestige isn't a legal term, and is a loosely defined type. We just use the word to describe the very finest and rarest Cognacs, often made with very, very old spirit, largely from the premier Grande Champagne designation.
