Coffee and alcohol are a match made in heaven, and when it comes to cognac, the possibilities are endless. Maison Martell has produced exceptional cognacs since 1715, and our Noblige expression is the perfect partner for coffee cocktails. We’ll delve into the iconic Noblige coffee story, to see how cognac and coffee can come together to create a unique and unforgettable experience.
A Cocktail Coupling
Cocktails make for a wonderful medium for that versatility in enjoying both coffee and alcohol. The addition of cognac elevates the flavours of coffee, adding complexity and depth. One of the most iconic cocktail coffees is the Espresso Martini, which combines espresso, vodka, and coffee liqueur. By substituting vodka for cognac, you can create a sophisticated and luxurious version of this classic cocktail.
The Evolution of a Caffeinated Spirit
It dates back to the 17th century when coffeehouses were popular in Europe. These establishments served both coffee and spirits and as soon as the two were combined, something wonderful was yielded. Irish Coffee is a classic example of this, combining coffee, whisky, sugar, and cream. Today, coffee cocktails are more popular than ever, and the addition of cognac takes them to new heights of elegance and refinement.
The Perfect Pairing – Why Martell Noblige?
From the four finest crus in the Cognac region, Ugni Blanc grapes are used to create a sophisticated flavour profile in Martell Noblige. Aged in fine-grained oak barrels, it gives notes of soft spices, jammy fruits, prunes and toasted bread to the cognac. When paired with coffee, the Noblige flavours complement and boost the rich, roasted taste of the coffee.
