Presentation of the bottle
Presented in a showstopping bottle coated in red foiling, this Cognac certainly stands out loud and proud. The handwritten typography that circles around the bottle inflicts a traditional touch to an otherwise rather contemporary design. This Cognac comes in a bottle that should be showcased amongst guests as it will bring nothing but life and soul to the party. Allow this bottle to take center stage at the bar, as its bold red bottle design will shine bright amongst the rest.
How to enjoy
VSOP Cognacs work wonderfully as the key component of a cocktail. Try mixing Comte Joseph VSOP with artisanal tonic and lots of ice. We also suggest lengthening 3cl of VSOP with Canada Dry, then adding two lots of orange zest, a few drops of Angostura Bitters and plenty of ice cubes. This makes a fruity delight and a cocktail that enhances the Cognac’s sweet palate with apricot and candied orange notes.
