Presenting the most up-to-date illustrated guide to cognac! Here is the intriguing history of this delicious spirit, and a discussion of its increasing prominence in today’s markets. The first part explores the intricate and diverse methods of producing cognac, and tells the extraordinary story of a brandy-producing region that fought to establish its own name and place. The second section describes how to get the most enjoyment out of drinking this superb liquor, and offers a selection of cocktail recipes. There is also advice on choosing the perfect cognac glass, matching different ages and styles to your personal taste, and even pairing a glass with a fine cigar. A directory—illustrated with cognac labels—profiles more than 100 top varieties, and provides details on the producer plus the author’s own tasting notes.
