Aromatic cognac of grapes followed by floral and blossom notes with a hint of cedar. Clean, yet warm flavor of fruity notes on the palate with a sweet honey and spice finish.
Released in 2011,1840 Original Formula was created as a collaboration between Pierre Ferrand owner, Alexandre Gabriel, their cellar master, Christian Guerin, and cocktail historian, Dave Wondrich.
1840 is an addition to the Pierre Ferrand cognac range that has a bit of history. Based on the 3 star cognacs much favored by the pioneering bartenders of the 19th century this has been designed to work perfectly in classic cocktails.
Its youthful fruity and floral character along with its higher proof for added oomph makes it stand out from other VS cognacs.
