VSOP Exlusif

VSOP Exclusif

Inspired by Admiral Nelson who defeated Napoleon at  Trafalgar, this drink comprises a mixture of cognac and port which the Admiral swore by as a remedy to sea sickness. We add to this by utilizing Courvoisier VSOP Exclusif cognac and a rich tawny port balanced with spicy Benedictine, fresh orange juice and bitters to create an ode to Nelson and his creativity.


• 2 parts Courvoisier VSOP Exclusif cognac

• 1/2 part Tawny port

• 1/2 part Benedictine

• 1/2 part freshly squeezed orange juice

• 3 dashes of orange bitters


Rocks glass


Stir all the ingredients together in a rocks glass over cubed ice.
