France Quintessence, the French spirits fair will take place on 11 and 12 September at the Salle Wagram in Paris. Over the two-day fair, the Cognac appellation will offer several Cognac-food pairings at their dedicated exhibitor’s space, for spirits connoisseurs, professionals and specialist journalists alike. Six Cognac brands will also be showcased to represent the category.
Cognac is a cosmopolitan spirit consumed worldwide which can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, in cocktails and also makes the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes. At the appellation’s exhibitor space, Parisian chef and owner of the Eclipses restaurant (https://eclipses.fr/) Cyril Choisne will be preparing original creations – from starter to dessert – to taste with the different cognacs on offer. Passionate about Cognac, Cyril has given free rein to his creativity for three exceptional pairings that will delight the most discerning palates.
