Both single-origin chocolatiers and master blenders are busy creating at the end of each equinox and harvest. They must both wait for nature to express itself fully—only then, can they reap what the land has given to them for that year.
And here at Cognac Expert, we think that’s rather beautiful.
That’s why we’ve paired our most straight talking, unblended Cognacs to accompany pure, single origin chocolate in our Maître de C: Chocolate x Cognac “Epicurean” Tasting Set.
The “Epicurean” edition is ideal for seasoned Cognac lovers that appreciate rare and mature eaux-de-vie.
- 3 x 120g of artisan, single origin chocolate
- 3 x 20cl of very old Single Cru Cognacs (mainly Hors d’Age, Extra, XO premium quality)
- 2 x large crystal tasting glasses
This is a pre-sale which will only last until next Sunday.
We love playing matchmaker. Each Cognac is made to be tasted with its own chocolate counterpart, because we believe there’s a lot to be said for combining flavors.
There’s something about the nuttiness of Cognac; combined with the earthy bite of dark chocolate—that makes us weak at the knees.
From bean-to-bar: Our single-origin chocolates are made by one of London’s best artisan producers, Phil Landers. Expect cacao beans from the likes of Guatemala, Nicaragua and the Philippines, among others.
From grape-to-bottle: Within the box, you’ll find Cognacs that have been nurtured to full maturity by expert producers. Each is derived from one single terroir in the Charente region of France.
Our production ledger
Our tasting sets will be made to order at our estate in Poullignac, France. We’ve selected the finest artisan producers to create our Cognac and chocolate - each one a master of their own process.
We are committed to small batches to ensure that the quality of the products are not compromised by scale, so join our waiting list for your tasting box.
This is a one-time edition which is strictly limited, and we will calculate our batch based on the number of orders. This is a pre-sale which will only last until next Sunday. Then our small team will get to work assembling your very own Cognac and chocolate tasting box.
While we’re sourcing the best eaux-de-vie to put inside, please note that the box design may change slightly. But don’t worry, you’ll be updated throughout the process.
Make it a gift
Cognac and chocolate—we’d say they are the Bonnie and Clyde of the food pairing world. With 2 high-quality snifter glasses, you’ll be able to savor the delights of cacao and Cognac together. Our tasting set was made for sharing: with friends, family, or that special someone.
