Nicholas Faith’s Guide to Cognac

Nicholas Faith’s Guide to Cognac

If you want to know a little more about cognac you could do worse than getting yourself a free copy of Nicholas Faith’s Guide to Cognac. You can buy it printed on paper or get the electronic version at no cost.

Nicolas Faith is an expert on cognac and has written extensively on it over many years. Perhaps one of the world leading experts on the spirit from Charentes.

This small book contains an introduction to cognac and a “directory” of the main cognac producers, including short profiles and tasting notes of the producers. More than 100 producers are included. It is short, concise and a good start for the cognac lover.

This book is based on Nicolas Faith’s much more extensive tome Cognac: The Story of the World’s Greatest Brandy, published by Infinite Ideas. “The Guide” has some 130 pages in small format whereas “The Story” is more than 200 pages filled with much denser text.

You can get your free copy of Nicholas Faith’s Guide to Cognac here.

    Excellent gesture. I was able to download the PDF version of this free Cognac guide, but the free ebook is only available through Kindle accounts registered with–so, I wasn’t able to get it.

      Don’t know about the kindle. don’t use it. But if you could get the pdf version then at least you can read it, although not on the kindle, right?

    Thanks for your response, Per. I will certainly enjoy the PDF, which is 68 pages long. The free ebook is evidently 127 pages, making me believe that I may be missing something (or maybe this is just a formatting thing).
    Of course I can always pay £30 and get the 233-page book. But then I have to face the fact that I prefer armagnac to cognac ;-).
    But, again, thanks for having made these links available. I always enjoy your newsletter. It reflects your and Britt’s passion and understanding of wine. Sorry that I didn’t get a chance to speak with you both more in Cahors, but I only attended the Monday presentations and tasting.

      My guess is that it’s a formatting question. You could simply send an email to the publisher to get the definitive answer.

      I have seen the longer version of the book (in pdf) and it is substantially more in depth than the free one (fortunately one should perhaps say).

      Thank you for your kind words. Yes, more chance to talk some other time.
