Cognac is a type of brandy that comes from the Cognac region of France. It is made from wine that is distilled twice in copper pot stills and aged in oak barrels. The Cognac region is located in the southwest of France, specifically in the departments of Charente and Charente-Maritime, and is centered around the town of Cognac.

To be legally called cognac, the brandy must be made from specific types of grapes, grown in the designated region, distilled twice in specific pot stills, aged for a minimum of two years, and adhere to strict standards for production and labeling.

Cognac is usually made from a blend of several different eaux-de-vie, or "water of life," each with their own unique characteristics.
