F.A.Q

What to mix with cognac?

Cognac is a very versatile drink. It may be drunk neat, over ice or diluted with a little water. It can be mixed with quality mixers, such as soda or traditional lemonade to make a long drink, or used to make a cocktail. For a range of Martell cocktails to try, see our cocktails section.

What to pair with cognac?

Like with any good wine, understanding the essentials of Martell cognac food pairing or cigar pairing can augment your tasting experience in delicious new ways. Whether with chocolate, main dishes, dessert or cigars, pairing with cognac can tickle your taste buds and stimulate your senses.

How to taste cognac?

Take a sip of the cognac, enough that you can slowly roll it over the tongue and the back of the mouth allowing it to coat all the key sensors on your tongue. Taste at the tip for sweetness, the back for bitterness and at the sides for saltiness and sourness. Keep the cognac in the mouth for about ten seconds to release as much of the flavour as possible.

How to choose a cognac?

Each Martell cognac has its specific flavour, style and character. That’s why cognac is one of the best gifts for someone who has everything. When it comes to choosing a cognac, the bottle you choose depends on you and how you want to enjoy it. The Martell Gift Ideas Matchmaker can help you choose a cognac as a gift or for yourself.
