In addition, the book teaches you everything you might want to know about Cognac, from its history to the way it is distilled and aged to recipes for Cognac cockatils. Complete with a glossary. Cognac is a must not only for aficionados but for anyone who has every enjoyed a sip of fine Cognac after a wonderful meal.
