    The nutritional information of cognac yields some surprising results

    When considering whether cognac could be good for your health, it’s important to keep a key point in mind. Cognac is ultimately an alcohol, and therefore to be consumed in moderation.

    However, that’s not to say that against certain measures cognac could be considered better for you than other popular alcoholic, and even some non-alcoholic, beverages.

    And whether that’s in terms of calories, carbohydrates, and fat, looking at its nutritional information does yield some surprising results.

    How do you drink cognac?


    First, when thinking of cognac’s nutritional impact, it’s important to consider how you enjoy your cognac. Maison Martell is a big advocate of enjoying your Martell, your way.

    Mixing cognac with other ingredients such as for a simple cognac cocktail, or cognac mixed drink, will increase the calorie count, especially if the mixers are sweet. However, cocktails with soda water, such as this Fine à l’Eau created by Remy Savage, have a lower calorie count comparatively.

    How does cognac compare?
    For the sake of comparison, let’s consider a 25 ml serving of Martell VSOP cognac served neat.

    This nutritional information is the same for other popular Martell cognacs, including Martell Noblige, Martell Cordon Bleu, and L’Or de Jean Martell.

    For a complete overview of Maison Martell brands, please consult these cognac nutritional information tables.

    Calories

    A serve of cognac contains 56.8 calories. This is less than a Scotch whiskey with 59 calories, and only a few more than vodka, with 54 calories, while red wine has 21 calories.

    Carbohydrates

    Carbohydrates, or carbs, can include sugars, starch and fiber. There are 0.2 carbohydrates in a 25 ml serve of cognac, compared to essentially zero in whiskey and vodka, due to their different fermentation process. There are around 0.7 carbs in a 25 ml serve of red wine.

    Surprisingly, a fresh orange juice for breakfast has more carbs than cognac, with 2.7.

    Fats

    Cognac is less fattening than popular breakfast drinks. In fact, on the measure of fat content it scores a big fat zero – as do whiskey, vodka and red wine.

    By contrast, semi-skimmed milk contains 0.85 gram of fat, and orange juice 0.06 g.

    As you can see, when considering the nutritional value of cognac, it pays to look at the bigger picture, and as always, enjoy consumption in moderation.
