Cognac comes from the region north of Bordeaux along the Atlantic Coast. It’s pretty, like most vineyard regions, and busy making it’s eponymous double distilled spirit. The town of Cognac, at the centre of the region, smells like brandy. You wake up in the morning and open the window and it’s distinct aroma comes wafting in to say hello. Right now, the Rémy Martin VSOP is keeping the demons from my heart.
