Weekend Sip: Now even Cognac comes in an organic version

The bottle: Hardy Cognac VSOP Organic, around $55

The back story: These days, there is a booming market for organic wine, so why not a market for organic Cognac? After all, the French spirit, which hails from the Cognac region, is made from wine. So around eight years ago, Hardy, a boutique Cognac brand whose roots go back to the 19th century, decided to explore releasing an organic version.

It was a task easier said than done, explains Bénédicte Hardy, the fifth-generation family member to help steer the company. Not only must the brand source organic grapes, she explains, but it also must make sure all the barrels and equipment used in production do not come into contact with non-organic wine.
