Named among the top Five Brands of Cognac to Try by the Huffington Post
VS & VSOP - Silver at 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Looking to change it up a bit? We highly recommend Mery-Melrose Organic Cognac. Seen most recently at Raw Wine NY and LA, we first came across it at the Indie Spirits Expo in New York. Hand-crafted by master blender Francois Mery and his wife Janis Melrose on their estate in the Grande Fine Champagne region of Cognac, France with less than 8,000 cases produced. We liked it so much we've added it to our collection. Search Mery to find it now in our WhiskeyLovers Store.
VS: Glows like honey in the glass, and exhibits a lively, expressive aroma of fresh peach and apricot, mint, violets, and chalk. On the palate, dried fruits and gentle oak spice segue to a refreshing finish characterized by green herbs and the distinct minerality typical of the Grande Champagne region. Relatively dry, it makes an excellent long drink or cocktail, but also shines as a neat pour enjoyed with friends on a sunny afternoon.
VSOP: A burnished gold color hints at the lush aromas and flavors to come from this spirit. On the nose, the longer aging is immediately evident with notes of cinnamon, vanilla, and honey, but the wood is balanced with a still-lively expression of fruit. The scent of dried apricots and figs mingles with rose petals and pain d’episces. The first sip saturates the palate with a soft, silky robe of warm spices and tropical fruits, with notes of brown sugar and persimmon emerging with successive sips. The long, fruity finish ends with a gentle sweetness reminiscent of ripe grapes. Enjoy it neat or over ice.
Give them a try...you wont be dissapointed!
