Explore the hidden depths of Cognac with one of the region's best houses. The Frapin family have been making Cognac since 1270 and are the leading producer of single estate Cognac, recently winning the World's Best Cognac at the World Sprits Awards 2016.

With the help of the UK's leading female Cognac expert, Michelle Brachet, we'll be exploring the complexities and food matching potential of Cognac and, of course, its use in cocktails.  With the help of the chefs at Jason Atherton's Social Wine & Tapas you can expect excellent food and a chance to try across Frapin's award winning range of Cognac.

Guests will be served Social Wine & Tapas’ autumn Frapin cocktail on arrival.
