Sazerac de Forge Finest Original Cognac

£125.00

The Sazerac de Forge et Fils Cognac brand disappeared in the 19th Century when the phylloxera epidemic devastated vineyards in France and changed the brandy business forever. The Sazerac Company have resurrected the spirit of Bernard Sazerac de Forge and in ‘Finest Original’ have recreated his Cognac as it was 200 years ago. Crafted using old and rare grapes native to the Cognac region (including Folle Blanche and Colombard) and traditional stills, it’s blended using components aged between seven and fifty years. Released in limited quantities, it’s going to be very hard to come by…

Luckily, Harvey Nichols has managed to get hold of a few bottles. Rich, floral and creamy, Sazerac de Forge Finest Original Cognac is not only dramatically fruity and spicy, but it buzzes with life. Powerful and yet silky, the flavours are reminiscent of dried apricot, yellow plum, dried wildflowers, marmalade rich in orange peel, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and oaky vanilla. The Sazerac Cocktail – born in New Orleans in the 1800s – was originally made with French brandy, but phylloxera reduced supply, so the recipe switched the emphasis to rye whiskey. We can’t think of a better Cognac to recreate the original version with. Alternatively, sip it neat alongside cheese, wild mushroom pâté or cherry liqueur chocolates.
