A Meukow Coffee Cognac Liqueur
After blending their VS Cognac with a one-of-a-kind roasted coffee liquor, this fine Cognac house present the Meukow Xpresso Cognac. This bottling is a subtle blend of Cognac and coffee liquor to give it that irresistible taste of a smooth espresso coffee, with a spicy, leathery body and bitter orange fruity notes. Bottled in the trademark puma bottle, this will make a fabulous gift, but also a wonderful addition to many different cocktails.
Unveiled at the TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes back in 2012, it has been blended with natural coffee flavoring to produce a wonderful infusion. The Master Blender is Anne Sarteux, and has been selecting the finest eaux-de-vie for delicate assemblages since 2007. She continues to demonstrate centuries-old savoir-faire in her practice.
After double distillation of the wine, the Cellar Master ages eaux-de-vie for at least two years and selects from a range of different terroirs. She favors those from the Fine Champagne, Bons Bois, Fins Bois and Borderies for her blends.
Presentation of the decanter
A Meukow decanter must be one of the sexiest on the market. In true Meukow style, the Xpresso Cognac is presented in a 70cl bottle and proofed at 32% ABV.
How to enjoy Meukow Xpresso Cognac

About Meukow Cognac
As the name suggests, Cognac Meukow is one of the few Russian Cognac brands in the Charente region. In 1862 two brothers were sent over to France to supply the Tsar with Cognac and decided to start their own Cognac distillery.
The brand has become known as the “jaguar liquor”, or the “panther liquor”, thanks to its distinctive bottle design. The big cat in question is in fact a puma, and today, with its famous logo, ranks among the most well-known Cognac brands in the world. Its qualities are strength, elegance, sensuality and exotism, the character traits of the puma.
The distillery is housed in Matha in the Charente Maritime, and are particularly celebrated for their VS Cognac, Vanilla Cognac liqueur and 90-Proof Liquor among many others.
