A glass of cognac, please!

…but not just any glass – a tulip glass is really what you should ask for. That is because the bouquet is an important part of the experience and a glass that narrows towards the top will trap the aroma better than a traditional brandy balloon.

Normal room temperature is always enough to bring the best out of a spirit. If the liquid is too cold, just warm it a touch in your hand – et voilà!
