Well, the success of Bacardi’s newest cognac – D’Usse – continues to rise, mainly thanks to the clever promotion of the drink by superstar hip hop artist, Jay-Z.

On the back of the enormous hype that’s surrounding his Budweiser backed, ‘Made In America’ music tour, he’s now announced the latest D’Usse Cognac weapon – a cognac and champagne cocktail entitled ‘Ace X D’Usse.’


After a knock out performance in Philadelphia, Jay-Z headed to a celebrity filled bash on the steps of the Museum of Art made famous by Sylvester Stallone in the film, Rocky.  It was here, in a private tent with Beyoncé, Aziz Ansari and Ron Howard, that the new champagne and cognac cocktail was unveiled.

No doubt the Ace X D’Usse will be available at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York.  Indeed, this was the setting for a campaign fundraiser last week (18th September), where the superstar couple busted some moves with Barak Obama.  The President performed a well-known hip hop dance move known as the ‘brush off shoulders.’

We think he should have tried a couple of the new Ace X D’Usse cocktails.  He might have ended up dancing Beyoncé’s most famous ‘Single Ladies’ after that.  And wouldn’t that be a marketing coup for Bacardi and D’Usse Cognac.

But at which price is this Cognac Champagne cocktail? How much is it?
