Darroze Les Grands Assemblages 8 Year Old Armagnac, 70 cl
Regular price £57.49
Les Grands Assemblages is an age-statement range of Bas Armagnacs bottled at 43%, serving as a great introduction to the work of master bottlers Darroze, who have previously only released single estate vintage armagnacs at cask strength. This 8 year old bottling, although older than most XO cognacs, really lets the spirit sing, with plenty of vibrant stone and berry fruit flavours. Read more.

It was in 1974 that Francis Darroze started his business as a trader and producer of vintage Bas-Armagnacs. For this he relied on years of experience, tasting, and visits to the ageing cellars of Bas-Armagnac, the sub-region of Armagnac where the most rich, complex and interesting spirits are produced.

Sidecar Cocktail Recipe
Some of the greatest drinks in the mixological canon are deceptive in their simplicity. Consider the Old Fashioned, the Daiquiri, the gin Martini—preparing a cup of coffee in the morning is more complicated than making these drinks. But through the basic combination of two or three ingredients, with some ice thrown in for excitement, a perfect match of flavors can be achieved. Add another drink to this list: the Sidecar. As with most cocktails, the origins of the drink are hazy (be suspicious of those who state with certainty when or where the Sidecar was first mixed), but this entrancing mixture of brandy, lemon juice, and orange liqueur started making the rounds in the most fashionable watering holes in London and Paris during the 1920s. Very simple in structure, the Sidecar is complex enough in flavor to satisfy even the most jaded palates, but not so over-the-top with mixological gewgaws as to frighten away the casual tippler. Two quick things to consider when mixing a Sidecar: first, quality matters. Use a cheap mass-market brandy or a cut-rate triple sec, and your Sidecar's gonna suck.
