I’m not much of a regular cognac drinker but the first time that I sampled D’usse Cognac was last summer at Vanessa James Media Mixology here in Miami, FL. Of course I was excited to try Jay-Z’s newest venture and D’usse was my favorite drink for the night. We were introduced to D’usse’s summer cocktails, “The Code” (my favorite) and “El Tamarindo”. I was a bit on the greedy side by having about three cups because the taste was smooth sailing and not so harsh being that it was a networking event. So you can tell that I’m excited to hear that D’usse is introducing their newest expression.
Coming to shelves this spring, D’usse XO has already made a buzz making its official debut at the 56th annual Grammy Awards. Masterfully crafted in the cellars of the Chateau de Cognac – a home with a 200-year legacy of creating some of the world’s finest Cognacs – D’USSE XO is a unique blend of meticulously hand-selected eaux-de-vie, aged ten years or more. D’USSE XO is an uncompromising Cognac that delivers complex flavor notes of ripe blackberry and apricot, layered with hints of dark chocolate and walnut, culminating in an exceptionally balanced finish. Its bottle design is inspired by the liquid it contains; both classic and modern, and bearing the Cross of Lorraine – a symbol of honor, courage and perseverance used by the French resistance during World War II – a statement wherever it rests.
“Consumers are fascinated with dark spirits and care more than ever about the quality and level of craftsmanship in the brands they consume. D’USSE XO is the response to that request.” says Robert Furniss-Roe, President of Bacardi North America.
D’USSE XO is an ultra-premium spirit made from the finest eaux-de-vie and is therefore available in limited quantities only. It will be seeded via exclusive introductions to trade and cultural influencers. D’USSE XO will retail for a suggested retail price of $230 for a 750mL and will be available in key cities across the country.
