Shaken not stirred: Magellan’s Cocktail List – Cognac Summit

It is imposable to talk about Cognac, without memories of the great taste and aroma of the finest French spirit conjuring in your mind. The Cognac Summit was created by a twenty strong team of the greatest Mixologists from around the world and was specially designed to accentuate the natural aromas of Cognac with refreshing spicy notes.
