7. Renault Avec

Another spirit innovation fuelled by the craft coffee craze, Renault Avec is a style of Cognac that has “never been seen in the industry before”.

Inspired by a prevalent trend in the Nordic region, the Cognac has been designed specifically to pair with coffee, offering “enhanced notes of roasted mocha and vanilla and a structure that is smooth and round”.

Cellar master David Croizet and his team achieved the taste profile by plunging barrels into tanks containing hot water before being brasero toasted.

This process is repeated three times, which Renault says is a first for the Cognac industry. Its purpose is to provide “notes of torrefaction” – that is, mild decomposition as a result of heating wood.
