If you are planning to fly Virgin Atlantic Upper Class then you are in for a treat as the airline and Courvoisier are set to join forces.

Maxxium Travel has just announced the partnership between the two, saying that Courvoisier will now be available as a pouring cognac, both on-board, and in the Virgin Atlantic clubhouse at London Heathrow Airport.

Passengers will also be able to purchase bottles of Courvoisier VSOP on-board the aircraft, and Courvoisier XO and l’Essence de Courvoisier will be available by pre-order.

In the bar at the clubhouse, passengers will have the opportunity to purchase Courvoisier Cognac either neat or in cocktails, and the bartenders will be trained on the Courvoisier brand, including the cocktail specific brand – Courvoisier Exclusif.

And for those who choose to dine in the clubhouse, they can take advantage of a brand new Courvoisier dessert creation, and this will also give the chance of winning  a bottle of L’Essence de Courvoisier.

Both Virgin and Courvoisier are delighted with the pairing.  It is a further step forward for Courvoisier in the retail travel market, and a large leap forward in its ambition to become the number one Cognac in travel by 2013.
