Celebrate special moments or simply class up the joint with splurge-worthy Bisquit & Dubouché VSOP Cognac (Very Superior Old Pale), an exceptional pour from France’s Cognac region. It’s pressed from the most prestigious eaux-de-vie of vines harvested from four main crus: Petite and Grande Champagne, Fin Bois, and Bons Bois.
Aged for a minimum of four years, Bisquit & Dubouché VSOP is characterized by a warm amber color and a spicier bouquet than VS. Having won the 2021 Gold Medal as Cognac VSOP of the Year, it’s a precious thing for sipping or for special use in premium cocktails.
Leave it to David Anderson - lead bartender at the American cocktail institution, Death & Company to put Bisquit & Dubouché VSOP Cognac to clever use in his Watermelon Sour, a summery concoction that uses fresh watermelon and lemon juice to play up the cognac’s subtle notes of honeysuckle, citrus, and mango.
