We’re pouring great French brandies on Friday night with our friend, Steffen Spinks from importer Heavenly Spirits. He’ll be here to guide you through three distinctive brandy producing regions and answer any questions about brandy in general.

Here’s the lineup
Claque-Pepin Calvados Fine...$29.99 / 750ml
Rated 92 points. "Bright, fresh aromas suggest apple and apricot. The soft, spiced palate shows stone fruit and coconut drizzled with honey, finishing with a baking spice exhale." (Wine Enthusiast 2021)

Calvados Chauffe Coeur VSOP…$39.99/750ml
6 yrs old:
Origin: According to the original and ancient recipe, the Calvados Chauffe Coeur are a blend of Calvados Appellation (single distillation) and Calvados Pays d’Auge (double distillation).

Monnet Cognac VS...$29.99 / 750ml
Minimum Age : 2 YEARS
Aged in Limousin oak casks. Distillation with lees for more aromatic elegance.

Monnet Cognac VSOP...$49.99 / 750ml
Minimum Age : 4 Years
Fine grain. Aged in Limousin oak casks. Distillation with lees for more aromatic elegance. Aged in our cellars in Jarnac, France.

Delord Bas-Argmanac Napolean...$39.99 / 750ml
Woody nose with hints of “rancio” to come. Discreet aromas of vanilla and fruit are satisfying and smooth. Min. 10 years old…more aging than required by law.

Bas Armagnac Dartigalongue Hors d’Age…$63.99/750ml
Min. 15 years old
Deep amber color, scents of baked apple, butter and black oak. The mouth is vibrant and generous, featuring again the baked apples, the oak and then some toffee and vanilla with some hints of tobacco toward the end. The finish is long, fat and silky.
