SommCon San Diego: All Cognac is Brandy, but Not All Brandy is Cognac!

All Cognac is Brandy, but Not All Brandy is Cognac! Thursday, November 14, 2019, 11:15 AM - 12:30 PM This Master Class is presented to you by certified Cognac Educator Christian Esser. Christian obtained this prestigious qualification at the invitation of the Bureau National Interprofessional du Cognac (BNIC). We will cover the history and production of Cognac including how best serve and enjoy the differing styles and food pairing options. 9 different Cognac’s will be tasted to illustrate and demonstrate the variety of terroirs, styles, tiers and ageing characteristics. Cognac is the original brandy and remains the most honoured and historical evolution of wine. A region in southwest France, Cognac is, first and foremost, a place. Blessed with a unique climate, fertile soils and a rich culture and history the town and surrounding area imbues the spirit made here with their very essence. Proving its versatility and universal appeal, Cognac remains a spirit of choice amongst fine diners and mixologists and finds a new youthful, appreciative, audience within pop-culture. The styles, versatility, applications and rich characters of Cognac are widely varied and the timeless production methods, little altered over the centuries, considered to be one of the most artisanal of all the spirits.
