Kelt Petra is International Beverage Company’s marquee grade cognac. Kelt Petra is also 100% Grande Champagne. The weighted average age is 70 years, comprised of casks aged between 15 and 135 years. The bottle is a crystalline, lead-free decanter with a cork stopper to ensure that the cognac is kept airtight.
Kelt Petra is an original concept: Petra rests in a beautiful, mahogany, hand-built cabinet, which is great as a back bar display and for tableside presentation. Instead of having the Tour du Monde certificate on the bottle, a blue “checkbook” is provided.
The checkbook is a unique item. Each bottle is numbered to the blue checkbook. Inside there are 18 pages for the restaurant’s guests to sign their name and addresses. When the bottle is empty, we ask the account to mail the checkbook to IBC’s office in Atlanta, Georgia. In return, Olev Kelt mails out letters thanking your guest for participating in Kelt Petra’s Tour du Monde experience, recaps the Tour du Monde story and invites them to visit Olev Kelt’s chateau for lunch if they visit France. The blue checkbook is mailed back to the account so they have a record of who their fine eau de vie consumers are. Kelt Petra received a 97 (the highest-rated marque grade cognac) and Platinum medal by the 1995 Wine Enthusiast Magazine World Spirit Championships. “Dark chestnut. Deep, rich, broad and oily. Flowers, herbs, toffee, mint, dried peaches. Strong oak flavors. Decadent, full finish”
