Kush Cognac is quite a contemporary blend sold in the USA. But wait a minute, Kush produces stuff which is associated with marihuana! So is there ‘hemp’ in this Cognac?

+++ If you have tried Kush Cognac, please share with us how it’s like! +++

If one looks at the bottles, with a hemp logo on the label: Those bottles look like a ‘bong‘. Cognac Expert was told that a ‘bong‘ is an instrument for consuming marihuana.  So this product obviously targets urban consumers – a very straight forward marketing activity.

So what’s the “Herbal” in the Kush Herbal Cognac?

It comes from Heartland Spirits Group, Springboro. Now more in detail: Kush Herbal Cognac is a blend of XO Cognac, fruit flavors, and Hemp Essential Oil, imported from the Netherlands, Holland. So there is no Cannabis in this Cognac… would have been such a surprise. And illegal of course.

Kush Cognac

John Kanetzke, Heartland’s Director of Sales and Marketing:

“To further differentiate Kush, we bottled it in an Italian Bruni glass bottle”

This liqueur is available in 3 different flavors:

  • KUSH Amsterdam: herbal extracts, sweetened with a hint of pear
  • KUSH Hydro: exotic fruit juices and slight herbal extracts
  • KUSH Reserve: cognac mixed with a hint of sweet rasberry & smooth herbal extract

Now, this Kush Cognac, where can i get it? Where can you buy it? Not available in every store, you can order it at these shops:

    this is not good

    I would not buy this stuff. This can’t be good. I mean, it’s a sin! They are targeting pot smokers? This is really really nonsense..

    Oh, I am probably in that target group… I’d love to taste this stuff.

    just always remember, weed is illegal and of course (!) it will not be in such a product, when sold in the US..!
    Anyhow, I think it’s a pretty stupid and unreasonable thing to sell such products.. they encourage young kids to consume other stuff. Cognac should be in bottles, after dinner, for gentlemen. Basta.

    Hi all, I actually came across the KUSH cognac and started distributing in Jamaica. It is very trendy and urban and going well so far. The Reserve is my favourite, then the hydro and then the Amsterdam. It is definitely not fruity like everyone thinks it is. It just has hints of flavours and sweetness. The drink is very smooth. Its great on the rocks. You may contact me if you are interested in purchasing or distribution.

    Hi again,
    Just read some more comments from you all. Don’t knock it till you try it. Ain’t nothing wrong with Pinto engines hun. Some cheaper made products are just as good and reliable. To each, his own, is all I say. Alcohol is alcohol, pretty much has the same effect on all humans.

    I have tried then green one a few times and its good premium cognac with a herbal blend. Unfortunately we’re I live in New Jersey the FDA took it of the market because the marijuana extract oils used.

    I tried it, and liked it. I hate that they took it off the market this way. It had good smooth taste.
