Divin "Aroma"


”Divin” – represents the name of “Cognac”- like beverages (fortified wines), produced in Moldova according to the classic technology of cognac production.

In 1909 the French government issued a decree which only permits the beverages that come from the French region Cognac, (distilled and produced by authentic methods) to be called “Cognac”. In many countries this beverage is named “Brandy”.

In Romanian the word ”Divin” means something pure, wonderful, with exceptional attributes. Divin reveals the best features of the wine grapes gathered in this refined drink. For this reason Aroma uses only certain grape varieties: Aligote, Feteasca, Rcaţiteli, Silvaner.

Once processed, the distillates are transferred for maturation into the cellars where they are stored in oak barrels (300 – 500 l capacity each), under constant controlled conditions. The maturation period depends on divines' mark and varies from three years (to make "three stars"), to 40 years. Some collection distillates from "Aroma" exceed the age of 50 years.

The character of cognac is formed by the duration of its maturation. Over the years it gradually loses some of its alcohol strength, at the same time absorbing the tannins and aromatic agents from the wood, slowly acquiring its specific taste and color. The light color of the beverage points to young divins; amber or golden – to older ones. A good quality divin will leave a sensation of warmth and smoothness.

Divin is usually served for dessert and goes well with fine cheeses, chocolate, and coffee.
