The Bardinet Brandy Iced Vanilla Latte is a delicious iced coffee cocktail that’s perfect for summer. It combines smooth Bardinet Brandy with freshly brewed espresso, oat milk, vanilla syrup, and ice for an indulgent iced treat.
Bardinet Brandy is a French brandy that exemplifies the fruit-forward style for which the Cognac region is known. It uses a mix of grape varieties including Ugni Blanc, Colombard, and Folle Blanche. These grapes impart light and fruity flavors to the distillate. Bardinet brandies are aged for at least 2 years in French oak barrels to develop complexity, before being blended to create the final branded products.
