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 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 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 yourself. (I favour equal parts cognac and Bénédictine served over ice in a heavy old-fashioned glass.)

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 30/09/2012

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber (more golden and not as coppery as Bénédictine D.O.M.).

Aroma:

Mint, cardamom, cacao, apple wood, black tea and honey.

Taste:

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.

Aftertaste:

Cognac and honey dominate the finish. To fully appreciate serve with ice and allow some dilution.
