Does Cognac make you FAT?

Now, we all know that Cognac has various health benefits (if consumed in moderation that is!) – not least its ability to help you unwind after a stressful day.  But do we need to worry about how many calories are in a shot of our favorite eaux-de-vie?  Will Cognac make us fat? Okay, okay – if you’re on a strict diet, then yes, everything that passes your lips has to be accounted for.  But in regular life, I don’t think many...

Tonic Tasting with Cognac: Schweppes, Q and Tomr's

Tonic Tasting: Tomr’s vs. Q Tonic vs. Schweppes

I really love cognac cocktails and longdrinks. One of my favourite tricks: Use a cucumber! It’s great. A simple longdrink with cognac is “Cognac Schweppes” - how the French would call it.

So this seems...

Hennessy Black Cognac

Hennessy Black Cognac Review and Price

We finally had the opportunity to taste the "Black Henny".  And no, the Cognac itself is not black (it's just the bottle). This was Hennessy's first major new product on a large scale (launched in 2009). And as Hennessy perfectly understood the relevance of the American market, they called the bottle 'Black'.  It was back in 1961 when Hennessy VS was introduced to the market. Receive Hennessy Black availability alert It’s difficult to find certain cognacs – and this one isn't currently...
