Courvoisier Mizunara cognac bottle with case

Mizunara 2021 Blend

From the first enticing aromas to the exquisitely long-lasting finish, this cognac is the true signature blend of two truly iconic cultures and traditions. 

The Mizunara Story

Mizunara cask with premium cognac

Meticulous wood selection has been a hallmark of Maison Courvoisier since its founding in 1828. In honor of this tradition, Maison Courvoisier’s Sixth Generation Master Blender, Patrice Pinet, has collaborated with Fifth Generation Chief Blender of House of Suntory, Shinji Fukuyo, to develop a unique and rare cognac, using casks from prized Japanese Mizunara oak. This first Mizunara release embodies the belief that a genuinely visionary blend must come from a bold fusion of craft, culture and its people.  

The tight grain of the Mizunara oak and its ability to enrich the aromatic profile of Maison Courvoisier’s cognac results in an enticing blend. The Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, distilled with lees, ensures complexity, depth and a long finish. This cognac represents an audacious synthesis of two cultures resulting in one revelatory cognac.
