Cognac: it’s not just for granddads anymore. The austere aged spirit has gotten a new lease on life in the last few years, making appearances on cocktail lists at all the places you ought to be drinking, and on Wednesday, September 11th, you can learn a little and taste a a lot at Backbar in Somerville. They’ve invited the global ambassador for Hine Cognac to lead a lunchtime seminar exploring all you need to know about the spirit and tasting your way through the portfolio. It’s a free event, and lunch is provided—what’s not to like? Sign up here.
