What's Covered

We will cover the history and production of Cognac including how best serve and enjoy the different styles and food pairing options. 9 different Cognac’s will be tasted to illustrate and demonstrate the variety of terroirs, styles, tiers, and aging characteristics.

Cognac is the original brandy and remains the most honored and historical evolution of wine. A region in southwest France, Cognac is, first and foremost, a place. Blessed with a unique climate, fertile soils, and rich culture and history the town and surrounding area imbue the spirit made here with their very essence.

Proving its versatility and universal appeal, Cognac remains a spirit of choice amongst fine diners and mixologists and finds a new youthful, appreciative, audience within pop-culture.

The styles, versatility, applications, and rich characters of Cognac are widely varied and the timeless production methods, little altered over the centuries, considered to be one of the most artisanal of all the spirits.


The exam takes place in the last session of the course. The exam consists of 30 multiple choice questions to be completed in 45 minutes. To pass you must correctly answer 70% of the questions. This qualification is Bureau National Interprofessional du Cognac (BNIC) regulated.
