Win a 750ml bottle of Bisquit Cognac V.S (Very Special) Classique worth R500! #BisquitJoziStyle @JoziStyle @BisquitSA #bisquitcognac

Bisquit Cognacs are well-known for their specific roundness and supple aromas, thanks to the hand-crafted distillation process. The aim is to create a crisp, delicious cocktail that preserves the Bisquit Cognac aromas and has very few ingredients so as to allow anyone to be able to make it.

In 2008, the BNIC (Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac) worked with a team of the world’s most famous mixologists to develop a signature Cognac cocktail that would revive the Cognac industry. These ‘Shaker Kings” created what is known as the Cognac Summit. This delightfully refreshing cocktail has fantastic aromatic complexity and can compete with the world’s most famous cocktails.

100ml fresh lemonade

Pour 40ml Bisquit V.S into your chosen glass
Add one slice of fresh ginger and lots of ice
Top up with 100ml lemonade

If you’d like to try your hand at making your own Cognac cocktails, it is important to note that very acidic ingredients such as pineapple do not pair well with cognac as they destroy the fats within the Cognac.

Other ways to enjoy a Cognac cocktail include:
·       V.S that has been placed in the freezer until it is completely chilled is delicious when mixed with litchi, apple, carrot, cucumber or shiitake mushrooms.
·       V.S at room temperature can be successfully combined with raspberries, pumpkin, apple, carrot and cucumber.
·       V.S.O.P is particularly well-matched with litchis.
