Grand Brulot is a new take on the French tradition of spiking coffee with brandy as a digestif. The brandy is a VSOP Cognac from a fifth-generation estate owned by the Tardy family in the Cognac region of France. The coffee is a robusta from Ecuador, selected for its richness.
Distillier is poised to launch its coffee-blended VSOP Cognac offering in the US. The company, which is owned by John Bernbach and Francisco Tonarely, initially released Grand Brulot VSOP Cognac Café in New York through a soft launch in New York earlier this year.
