Take a sip from a glass of cognac, and you’ll understand why the French say it’s made from l’eau de vie or the water of life. Cognac is a type of brandy or distilled wine that’s aged in oak barrels and blended but instead of distilling the spirit once, it is distilled twice. It is often made from three main grape varieties, ugni blanc, folle blanche, and colombard. That twice-distilling process then creates a unique and distinct flavor of sweetness and richness, with notes of dried fruit, toffee, and syrup. That’s what cognac’s taste is all about, which makes it a very popular drink to complement cigars.
When it comes to popular brands of cognac, Hennessy and Remy Martin are at the top of the world’s list. Both of which are available here at the Uptown Liquor!
