Cognac Cocktail Recipes

Cognac was first produced and enjoyed in the 17th century. To this day, the spirit has developed into one of France’s most important products. Unlike wine, Cognac is distilled twice and then stored in oak barrels. Various other requirements have to be met before a wine can actually be called Cognac (more on this on our Cognac page). Nowadays, there are many well-known cognac producers and brands. Through these brands and bartenders around the world, countless cognac cocktails have been developed. These can be sweet and fresh (like the French Force) or classic, tart and dry (like the Deauville).
