The Cognac Rule

On Ned Dwyer’s Blog I found an interesting article about the “Whisky Rule”, it works pretty simple: If you cancel a meeting less than 10 minutes notice, or if you miss it completely then you owe your counterpart a bottle of whisky.
Why not introducing this simple and effective rule on Cognac? I think it will compensate the party who was left waiting for their time, also the party who haven’t cancelled the meeting will be more strict managing it’s time.

Brenne – French Single Malt Whisky

In our continuing search on the internet we found something very awesome! Brenne is a Single Malt Whisky that is being harvested, distilled, matured & bottled in the Cognac area. Wicked!
According to the makers, this Whisky is smooth, approachable and contains a hint of fruit. It contains spice notes from the malted barley and is balanced with the sweetness from Cognac soaked oak. Very nice!
