Now this is serious investigative journalism: the favourite cocktail of Hennessy’s master blender Monsieur Yann Fillioux.

Yann Fillioux Master Blender

Let’s reveal right now what we learned some days ago, here comes the recipe:

  • Pineau des Charentes Blanc
  • 3-4 drops of Gin (good Gin)
  • a slim slice of lime
  • an ice cube

Okay, let’s face it: It might not be ‘the one’ favourite cocktail of the famous master blender, but definitely one of his top mix drinks made with Pineau. Monsieur Fillioux will probably also have a favourite recipe for a Cognac cocktail – but we have no idea what that could be.

    I tried it yesterday evening – quite nice. I also added a splash of water to the cocktail, and a bit more gin, so it’s not too sweet – but the Cognac/Pineau note still recognizable.

    Love it!
