How to enjoy the Normandin Mercier Cognac de Noel
The process requires patience and careful consideration; think like a Cellar Master! Add your mix of ingredients from the vial to the Cognac bottle. Leave it for a minimum of a week to complete the maceration process, and you will well and truly bring the Christmas flavors to life. Keep it in a cool and dark place during this period. Once open, enjoy it with friends and family.
It is best served over ice.
