Planat Oscar 45% Organic Cognac
Planat Oscar 45% Organic Cognac is a tribute to Oscar Planat, one of the founders of the Cognac house and a skilled Cellar Master. Made up of organic eaux-de-vie that have been carefully selected for their aromatic qualities, this Cognac was produced exclusively for use at the bar. As a result, it is a Cognac for bartenders and mixologists who appreciate the use of Cognac for enhancing the best cocktails.
With a rich family history closely associated with the history of France, Abel Planat founded the brand in Cognac back in 1828. Renowned for the role he played in the town of Cognac’s development; during his tenure as mayor, he developed the town’s first public drinking water system. Then to follow in his father’s footsteps, Oscar Planat took the reins of the company and further burnished its international reputation. He was both a member of parliament and mayor of Cognac and he is still fondly remembered for having embellished the town with its gorgeous public park. Today the brand lives on with a range of Cognac delights targeted at both amateurs and professionals of mixology.
Presentation of the bottle
Displayed in an all black bottle, the color of the Cognac inside cannot be seen until the product has been poured. Easy on the eye however, the Cognac sparkles with hints of amber reflecting through its light straw coloring. The bottle for the Oscar is thoughtfully crafted with Adam Caron’s requirement of a bottle with a longer neck for better grip when working at a bar. The package is made to be cooperative with bartenders pouring process and therefore has a capacity of 75cl, whilst only containing 70cl of Cognac.
