Bénédictine and Brandy (B&B) was created by a bartender at New York's famous Twenty-One Club in 1937. The drink's overnight success soon led to the production of a pre-mixed 60 per cent Bénédictine and 40 per cent cognac version in 1938.
This 'B&B' pre-mixed version is now made with "Fine French brandy" and VSOP Otard cognac and still accounts for the majority of U.S. sales and some 40% of total worldwide sales. But as long as you have a bottle of Bénédictine D.O.M. and of cognac you can easily mix a B&B cocktail yourself. (I favour a splash more brandy than Bénédictine served over ice in a heavy old-fashioned glass.)
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/09/2012
Clear, golden amber (more golden and not as coppery as Bénédictine D.O.M.).
Mint, cardamom, cacao, apple wood, black tea and honey.
Much drier than Bénédictine D.O.M., the B&B is nutty (hazelnut) with nutmeg, cinnamon and gingerbread spice served with black tea moistened blackened fruitcake.
Cognac and honey dominate the finish. To fully appreciate serve with ice and allow some dilution.
