Introducing WestCo.

5 December 2012 No Comment

Introducing the story of WestCo,  a new Cognac-association:

We are two old friends (as old as you can be at our age), passionate about cognac. We both come from Charente, and were raised with the love of good food and good wines that French people often have. That’s what we want to share with you.

With WestCo. we will be organising tastings and events in France (for now). We want to show that cognac isn’t just this snobby and expensive drink that is sipped in private clubs.

We want to show that there isn’t just one cognac, but hundreds. And each has different flavours and tells different stories. It’s all those stories we would like to share.

We’ll be organising different types of gatherings:

·       Tastings (mainly with cognacs from small houses)

·       Events in bars, exhibition openings… (with cognac based coktails)

We are targetting young people from 18 to 88, trendy or has been, rich or poor, because cognac really can be adapted to all these populations!

We will also be opening a website (very soon, now) in which the cognac culture and life will be told. As there are already many cognac experts who will be better cognac tasters than we are, we don’t want to do that. Au contraire: we want to meet them. Our website will be more about life paths of different winegrowers, Cognac History and stories, and its different actors. Cognac is a micro society we want to paint.

Our first event will take place in Poitiers (86), on the 8th December. Two different cognacs will be available for tasting Athanor and Dhiersat. It will take place at a friend’s shop: Quand les Poules rue Gaston Hulin
