National Cognac Day with Courvoisier

See also

National Cognac Day is today June 4th, as you may have plenty of options to celebrate the day, Courvoisier should be considered. Since its creation in the early 1800s, Courvoisier boasts a rich history that dates back to the days of Napoleon Bonaparte. In fact, Courvoisier at the time became known as “the cognac of Napoleon,” since it was the French emperor's favorite, and in the brand’s current insignia, you can see Napoleon reaching into his jacket, where he notoriously kept his flask of Courvoisier. Stemming from Jarnac, the heart of the Cognac region, Courvoisier has remained throughout the years one of the world’s leading luxury cognac houses. The brand’s portfolio features 13 marques perfect for sipping neat as well as for mixing in cocktails.
