HENNESSY
CREATES
THE ULTIMATE ‘PARADIS’
The world’s best-selling Cognac is aiming higher than ever
with their newest release.
Hennessy Paradis Impérial
is a blend of vintages between 30 and 130 years old; only
one out of 1,000 eaux-de-vie of a given year made the cut.
Hennessy Paradis dates back to
1818, when an exclusive blend
was first created for the Dowager
Empress of Russia. Elegant
and complex with an insanely
long finish, Paradis Impérial
is transcendent. It comes in a
crystalline glass decanter with
an 18-carat gold and silver
collar, encased in a luxurious
gift box. SRP $2,700.

THE
FIND
LIQUIDS
TO LOOK
OUT FOR
VERMOUTH:
OLD IS NEW AGAIN
Vermouth—the aromatized, fortified
wine that dates back to the 1700s—was
acting crafty long before craft spirits. Now
mixologists and specialty retailers have a
few new versions of this heady, complex
ancient elixir to play with. From France,
Anchor Distilling Company’s import
Maurin
(known for its iconic green devil
label) has three new vermouths, Dry, White
and Red, each created from recipes dating
back to the 1800s. Avilable in CA, NY, FL, TX, IL, MA; SRP for
each is $24.99/750ml. And from Italy,
Martini
has released
the limited-edition Gran Lusso marking their 150
th
anniversary.
Gran Lusso combines two unique extracts: The first was made
with Moscato must; Martini says the second, the recreation of
a 1904 recipe known only as “extract 94,” is the first botanical
extract to rest in small demijohns for eight years. Gran Lusso
made its debut at this year’s Tales of the Cocktail; SRP is about
$30/750ml.
