Somehow Merlet goes back to the roots. Since 1850 the family distillery produces cognac, and concentrated on selling the eaux-de-vie to the bigger houses (like Hennessy, Martell etc.). But now Merlet recreates its own brand, with an own bottle, with their own label.
Gilles Merlet blended Brothers Blend for his two sons Pierre and Luc – the next winemakers and blenders in the family tradition.
Brothers Blend is a blend that consists 80% of Fins Bois blend, giving it a slightly ligther tone, 20% comes from Fine Champagne (Grande and Petite Champagne). The Fins Bois eaux-de-vie is 4 to 5 years old, and the Fine Champagne part is up to 12 years old.
Brothers Blend is a mixable spirit, for cocktails or on the rocks.
Another product the house of Merlet will soon launch Crème de Melon, also made for cocktails.
