I like to have cognac time to time. We moved to the state where kosher cognac is not sold, even in Total Wine store, and cognac could not be shipped to the state by the rules on alcoholic beverages. My friend said that I can have non-certified cognac at home or among Jews. Is this right? Thank you
Thank you for your question.
Cognac is a grape based alchoholic drink, which can have serious yain nesech/stam yanom issues. It definitely needs a reliable hashgacha.
