In the 19th century, when the modern art of the bar was born, no spirit was more prized for mixing drinks than cognac. Ferrand 1840 Original Formula represents our attempt to recreate the kind of cognac that the pioneers in the bars used during that period. Modeled on an extraordinarily rare 1840 bottle of Pinet-Castillon Cognac, and made with the blending techniques from this era, it is rich, concentrated and highly mixable, in the 1840s style.

This pours a bright amber color, with restrained but beautiful aromas of white flowers, orange, peach and honey. On the palate, it's full-bodied, with bitter orange peel and stone fruit flavors, with lingering vanilla and oak. The alcohol feels relatively balanced, but it creeps up on you. This needs dilution, so use it in punches as intended and you'll be fine.
