Remy Martin Coeur de Cognac

Remy Martin Coeur de Cognac Remy Martin Coeur de CognacOnce upon a time, Cognac was a go-to mixing spirit and it was in the early 1900s that all-time classics such as the Sidecar cocktail really came to prominence.  Fast forward to the 21st Century and Remy Martin has created a contemporary style of Cognac that particularly lends itself to classic cocktails.  Coeur de Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vie distilled from grapes grown in Grande and Petite Champagne, the most prestigious vineyards in the heart of Cognac.  Once distilled, the spirit is then aged to reveal a mild fruity flavour – including particularly prominent peach and apricot notes – that is delicious neat but also brings cognac cocktails to life.  With its wonderfully smooth character and stylish bottle, Coeur de Cognac provides a modern appeal to this most traditional of spirits.  Around £40 from good spirits retailers.  www.remymartin.com
