New edition of the Cognac Cocktail Connexion to be held in Paris on January 23
The 2020 edition of the event by the Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac (BNIC) begins January 23rd in Paris. Although, it is followed by three dates yet to be revealed between Paris and Bordeaux.
The Cognac Cocktail Connexion aims to highlight the creation of cognac-based cocktails prepared by young actors from the French high mixology. The BNIC organizes the event together with Barmag.
The CCC is an itinerant event that seeks to raise awareness of French mixology characters to the expressions of cognac in cocktails. At the same time, it seeks to reach both professionals and amateur enthusiasts of this drink.
Elegant and subtle cocktails can be created with cognac, and the spirit offers a variety of styles and profiles. In addition, it has a great aromatic richness that inspires bartenders and thus allows them to make diversified creations, whether classic or contemporary.
CCC Program: 4 sessions
Four sessions of the CCC will take place between January and November in the cities of Paris and Bordeaux. Although the rest of the dates remain a mistery to be announced by the BNIC. The first date takes place on Thursday 23 January at the Officine du Louvre, in Paris’ 1st arrondissement. The event is preceded by a master class reserved for bar professionals.
The professional master class will take place at Harry’s New York Bar from 2:15p.m. to 5.00p.m. (5 rue Daunou, 75002). Here, bartenders will have the opportunity to discuss the expressions of cognac in cocktails and the diversity of cognac profiles and styles.
