Betty Lesueur learnt the art of distilling from her father, as she accompanied him to meet with local wine growers.

Izambard This rounded and mellow cognac draws its qualities from the skills of several generations of distillery craftsmen with a deep respect for the methods of traditional double distillation and careful ageing in oak casks. It reveals a sensual and velvety texture with natural nuances of oak and summer fruit. The Izambard family's attention to every detail has produced an exceptionally fine cognac which Hennessy is proud to select as an example of the highest level of the distiller's craft.
The Izambard family have been master distillers since 1833. The Nordic-sounding name is most certainly connected to the Visigoth and Celtic invasions. Authentic, original and family made, Izambard has its own unique character. It is a velvety Cognac with mild autumn woody notes, derived from patient ageing in specially selected Limousin oak casks. The style of Izambard is well balanced and rich, with great character. In one word: ‘Sensual’. Izambards deep and golden amber colour is a testimony to its long ageing. An aroma of a light floral attack, opening into a powerful combination of oak and forest smells. And round, ripe fruit flavours taste turning slowly into rich woody notes.
