Why is cognac going extinct?

Why is cognac going extinct?

The world's supply of cognac is running low. Part of that is because LVMH would rather hold on to the stuff and sell it later in China, where consumers prefer aged cognacs and pay roughly three times the U.S. price per bottle. Production can't be ramped up quickly. Cognac needs at least two years of aging.

Why are there liquor shortages?

Across the country, liquor retailers are facing shortages of wine, beer and spirits as the result of supply-chain issues and the surge of demand during a very active holiday season.
