The Merlet Brothers Blend Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vies that are a combination of those that are fairly young, through to some that are very well aged. This blend makes for a unique style, with the youngest bringing their vibrant power and the older ones balancing this with their complexity and maturity. Most of the components are from the Fins Bois terroir, with a further one from the premier cru of Grande Champagne.
This makes for an extremely versatile Cognac - one that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Of course, it can be drunk in the traditional manner - neat. But we particularly like it over ice, which causes the fruit aromas to be highlighed and new floral flavors to become apparent. In addition, it's a great Cognac to use in a cocktail, thanks to the fresh, delicate notes combing will with the other ingredients without overpowering them.

Tasting review by Merlet Cognac:
Nose: Elegant and energetic, with notes of candied apricot, quince, white flowers, cinnamon and vanilla
Palate: Merlet Brothers Blend unveils delicate notes of white fruits (peach and apricot) and a subtle woodiness. It’s a supple and well-balanced cognac, with a long and pleasant finish.
With a traceable history dating back to 1850, the Merlet family have continued to produce cognac, alongside a continually growing range of other products, to the current day. Headed today by Gilles Merlet, his sons Pierre and Luc joined the business a few years back, bringing with them a new generation of enthusiasm and direction. Although the house Distillerie Merlet & Fils originally produced eaux-de-vie for some of the most prestigious cognac houses in the world of cognac, they are now famous in their own right, not only for their quality cognacs, but for their innovative range of other products that sell around the globe.
