Serving up perceived exclusiveness with each glass, cognac is continuing its reign as the benchmark by which other brandies are judged.

In 2013, 11.1 million 9-liter cases of brandy/cognac were sold in the U.S., generating $1.5 billion for distillers, according to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States.

Since 2002, total brandy/cognac volumes are up 15 percent, with the super premium category rising more than 54 percent.
