During this workshop, completely independent from any Cognac trading house or family estate, your professional Cognac lecturer will answer to your questions and explain to you what the essence of Cognac is and how to compare this spirit to others such as Whisky or Rum. During this experience, you will be presented 3 Cognacs from different vintages, ages and blends, that you and your small group will taste and analyse.
