Prowood expands portfolio with new offerings, sees success with high-end brandy and cognac
California-based Prowood Wine & Spirits’ (PWS) offering is steeped in the mystique and luxury of premium spirits. The brands are led by the aromatic and spicy but delicate Arman Cognac from France and an Armenian brandy called Kilikia, made from finest grapes grown in the Ararat Region.
PWS is billing Arman Cognac, available in both the XO and VSOP expressions, as the jewel in its portfolio—the “Signature of a royal man.” The company says Arman Extra Old Cognac is a blend of a hundred rare and selected eaux-de-vie from the premier growing areas of France kept in oak barrels for 20 to 50 years to achieve perfection.
Kilikia brandy, on the other hand, is available in the XO expression and is named after the Armenian kingdom called Kilikia or “Little Armenia.” This Brandy is aged for 10 years. After tastings, experts described it as strong yet delicate, at the same time leaving a definite hint of toasted wood and touch of cinnamon.
The company has also recently expanded its range of spirits. New this year are offerings such as Edward Gunpowder England Spiced Rum and Mamba Liqueur, packaged in a unique black bottle with a snake wrapped around it for maximum shelf standout.
