Bardinet bottles coffee-flavoured brandyBy Melita Kiely
La Martiniquaise-Bardinet kick-started its new flavoured brandy series with the launch of Bardinet Coffee.
The new release is the first in the new Bardinet Flavours collection and combines Bardinet brandy with Arabica and Robusta coffee.
Bottled at 20% ABV, Bardinet Coffee is recommended served over ice, in long drinks or mixed in cocktails.
Tasting notes include roasted coffee aromas, sweet fruits and bitter coffee on the palate, finishing with prunes and a ‘rich coffee finale’.
Léna Rusek, international brand manager, said: “We saw an opportunity to create a delicious spirit that caters to the growing love of coffee-flavoured items.
“Coffee and brandy have long been a match made in heaven. This new offering adds another dimension to that flavour combination. It’s a contemporary product that also stays true to Bardinet’s French heritage and passion. We think consumers will love it.”
In December last year, Bardinet unveiled a a new bottle design and advertising campaign to showcase its French heritage. The new look included a slimmer bottle shape and ‘bolder’ branding, which was rolled out across Bardinet’s VSOP and XO expressions.
La Martiniquaise-Bardinet also produces Beehive brandy, comprising VSOP and XO expressions.
