Cognac, the French drink par excellence, can be tasted in various bars in the Parisian capital. We bring you five of the best bars where to taste it, neat or in cocktail.


Bar Botaniste – Shangri-La

Located in the prestigious hotel of the same name, the Bar Botaniste at the Shangri-La París prepares special, original and daring creations, inspired by Roland Bonaparte. You can enjoy cognac-based cocktails such as Néktar. A cocktail prepared with Martell Premier Assemblage, mead, inul honey, red propolis and fresh pollen.

A place to find good cocktails and music to follow that sounds direct from a vinyl collection. Participant last year of the Cognac Cocktail Connection edition, here they know how to prepare very well cocktails based on the spirit. As for cognac, the team Fréquence maintains the same philosophy: a selection according to the essence and history of the product to imagine cocktails that balance well.

Previously, the three leaders Guillaume Quenza (ex-Sherry Butt), Matthieu Biron (ex-Andy Wahloo) and Baptiste Radufe said:

Cognac is a liqueur with a lot of character, which adds consistency to the cocktail. It is always a pleasure to explore all kinds of cognac in our creations. Today, we make our cocktails with an unassembled VSOP. He challenged me for the passionate work of his winegrowers and the methods of aging. This drink is back in the spotlight thanks to the great return of local products that reflect the world of cooking“.
