Just a couple of months ago, we had the pleasure of welcoming Comandon Cognac and Owner/Master Blender, Franck Vigneron, to the Bistro for a once in a lifetime cognac tasting and food pairing. We offered six cognacs to taste, including some that have won 100 points at World Best Cognacs, as well as some of the rarest in the world. Some cognacs we had at that event were made in such a limited supply that only 120 bottles were ever produced! Even though you may have missed that event, these cognacs are still available on our website and in our locations.
Guests at the event were treated to a unique liquor that day: a brandy aged in Japanese Mizunara oak cask, brought all the way from France by Vigneron himself. This spirit is so rare that a bottle is for sale in the Dubai airport for more than $10,000!
Whether it’s sake, whiskey, cognac, or any other spirit, our tastings are truly a unique experience; and our upcoming events are no exception. We take pride in presenting our customers with a variety of rare and unique liquors from all over the world, and these tasting events are a fun way to learn more about new liquors.
Be sure to check our events calendar for more details and to stay up-to-date with all of our upcoming events! Tastings happen weekly at both of our San Diego locations in Del Cerro (6380 Del Cerro Blvd, San Diego 92120) and La Jolla (1030 Torrey Pines Rd, La Jolla 92037), and we have at least five or six tastings every month.
