Grand Brulot Launches in New York and Georgia
The 1st ultra-premium French VSOP Cognac Café now available
August 8th, 2018 (New York, NY) – Grand Brulot, the first ultra-premium French VSOP Cognac café, announces its launch in New York and Georgia markets. Following successful launches in the U.K., Grand Brulot seeks to re-introduce the French tradition into the on-premise.
Grand Brulot revives an 18th century French tradition through a unique and masterful infusion of premium VSOP Cognac with rich Robusta coffee. Handcrafted by the Tardy Cognac family on their estate in the Cognac region of France, cellar master, Christoph Tardy – a fifth-generation, Cognac producer – meticulously selects the finest ‘eaux de vie’ with a unique blend of Ugni Blanc & Colombard grapes from a single-estate to craft a unique VSOP Cognac.
The cognac is then blended with a 100% Robusta coffee beans sourced from Guayas, Ecuador. Aged for up to six years in French Oak barrels allows the melding of flavors to blend over time. The final blend is a uniquely dry and smooth blend of VSOP cognac and coffee that delivers flavors notes of nutmeg and Vanilla with subtle honey aroma, combined with the rich, roasted and dark flavors of the Robusta Espresso beans.
“As the cognac market continues to boom and the category is expensing to new occasions with new versatility, we wanted to pay tribute to the origin of Cognac with Grand Brulot” says Francisco Tonarely, CEO and partner of Distiller LLC. “Following our launch in the U.K., we hope to offer U.S. cognac connoisseurs a fresh new way to experience what we consider the perfect match.”
As a carefully crafted spirit, each serving of Grand Brulot incorporates one-full shot of espresso and will give imbibers a new way to enjoy it straight, on the rocks with an orange peel or in cocktail classics such as a Manhattan, Old Fashioned, Espresso Martini or Sazerac.
Grand Brulot will be imported and distributed by Lauber Imports for New York and United Distributors will oversee distribution in Georgia. For a full list of where to experience Grand Brulot, please visit their website for locations.
