Seignette VS s’il vous plaît!

Add a touch of French chic to at-home cocktail hour..

VS’s fresh aesthetic and depth of flavour bring some welcomed joie de vie to winter cocktail-making at home. Seignette VS is a modern-day cognac with notes of dried apricot, vanilla and hints of honeysuckle on the nose, followed by oaky vanilla notes, a touch of citrus and a long, creamy finish on the palate. It’s fresh, extremely approachable and delicious in mixed drinks and cocktails.

‘This is a cognac for those people who think cognac isn’t for them’ – Clive Carpenter, GM of Domaine Sazerac de Segonzac
