Grand Brulot revives a 200 plus year old French tradition where rich Coffee was blended with Cognac to create an exquisite tasting drink: The Brulôt. The legend of Café Brûlot extends back to New Orleans in the early 1800s and the infamous Jean Lafitte. Whether or not the French pirate actually created the first pairing of café and cognac is a question that may never be answered. But the legend absolutely lives in today’s after-dinner Café Brûlot tradition in the finest French Quarter restaurants.
Grand Brulot is hand-crafted by the Tardy family on their estate located in the Cognac region of France. Cellar master Christoph Tardy a fifth-generation Cognac producer meticulously selects the finest ‘eaux de vie’ to craft a unique VSOP Cognac which is blended with Ecuadorean 100% Robusta coffee beans selected for their concentrated richness. The blend is then aged in French oak barrels to allow the melding of flavor notes over time.
This uniquely dry and smooth blend of VSOP cognac and coffee delivers flavor notes of nutmeg & vanilla with subtle honey aroma, combined with rich, roasted, dark & dense nose and flavor from 100% Robusta Espresso. Every drink of this fine VSOP cognac includes a shot of espresso.
Grand Brulot can be enjoyed in a delicious Espresso Martini, straight or on the rocks after a meal or made into a delicious Manhattan or Old Fashioned.
