Cognac In Space

Here's a picture of the old factory building.  They actually did the distilling in it until they built a bew builing about ten years ago.  Now it houses their store and sports room and some offices.

The rest of the photos are of the corporate "love me" room.  It traces the company's history from 1889 on.  If you scroll down some, you'll see some bottles in a display with photos of cosmonauts.  Trust the Russians to take cognac into space.  Supposedly, it was to see how distilled liquids acted in reduced gravity.  That sounds weak to me!  They also gave John Paul II some for his 25th anniversary of promotion to the papacy.  Next Kvint post, it's off to the bottling plant!
