The days of the cliché Cognac drinker being reserved to cigar smokers sat in front of an open fire are long gone! Yes, certain Cognacs do suit the aromas of a good cigar, but Cognac can be drunk anywhere and in a variety of ways.
Cognac may be drunk neat, with ice or diluted with a little water. At Martell, we do not recommend warming Cognac as it brings out the alcohol too strongly and releases the aromas too quickly. A tulip glass, rather than a balloon glass, is also recommended since it assures a much better appreciation of the entire aromatic range of the Cognac.
Cognac can also be mixed in a wide range of long drinks and cocktails. For a range of Martell cocktails to try, see our cocktails section.
