Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac


These are sample bottles, but yes you can get them in 750ml bottles at retail.

We received several samples of Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac, and some Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, and we can safely say - this stuff makes a great drink (see after the jump). How did this new liquor come to be? Cognac Ferrand owner Alexandre Gabriel with help from cocktail historian David Wondrich wanted to recapture the spirit of the quintessential cocktail days of the 1800s and Pierre Ferrand Cognac 1840 Original Formula was born.

Back in the nineteenth century, when the art of the cocktail as we know it first came together, barkeepers knew that nothing made for a better mixed drink than a good "three-star" Cognac. Pierre Ferrand 1840 is bottled at 90 proof, higher than most Cognacs, making it exceptionally mixable in cocktails like Crustas, Juleps and Punches.


We ended up making a modified champagne cup - Lemon, Pierre Ferrand 1840 cognac, the dry Pierre Ferrand Curacao, and some champagne. Delicious - and if we would have put a little sugar on the rim - almost like a sidecar. It tasted so good, we ended up making 4 more for guests.

Thanks again to Pierre Ferrand for sending us samples to review.
