Different opinions on the ideal Cognac glass are as old as the drink
itself. Even today, cognac is mainly served in wide tulip-shaped glasses
- in spite of the disadvantages which this traditional shape has for the
enjoyment of cognac.
The differences in color, aroma and taste are the features by which the
quality of a cognac is judged. The finely tuned shape of this glass
harmonizes the aroma and the taste, tempering the alcohol and the
stringency of the palate and emphasizing the bouquet. The flute-shaped
glass allows its contents a very small evaporation surface. You will be
surprised to detect no pungent fumes but only delicately balanced aromas,
reminiscent of a summer meadow.
