Cognac liquor is a variety of distilled brandy named after the town of Cognac, France. Known for its rich texture and flavor, cognac is the ultimate adult beverage for sipping slowly. But, cognac liquor doesn’t always have to stand on its own. You can mix it with tonic and pour it over ice, combine it with orange juice, or add a drop of syrup. However you choose to enjoy your cognac liquor, drink it with keen appreciation.
To be called cognac, a distilled brandy must be produced by specific methods identified by the French government. Only certain French geographic regions are decreed to produce cognac. It must be made from certain varieties of grapes, distilled twice in copper pot stills, and aged for a minimum of two years in barrels made of oak from the Limousin or Troncais regions of France. Cognac blends different brandies to produce complexity and fullness of flavor.
Some cognac liquor blends are produced specifically for mixing in cocktails while others are best enjoyed on the rocks or, if you prefer, neat. For maximum enjoyment of a neat cognac, hold the body of the glass in the palm of your hand for about 10 minutes. This slowly raises the temperature of the spirit without evaporating the aroma, giving you the full experience. Quality Liquor proudly sells Cognac to sophisticated winers and diners.
