The World's 50 Best Bars Brands Report 2015: Cocktails

08 January, 2015

In the worlds’ best bars, brandy cocktails seem to be made with three brands: Hennessy, Rémy Martin and Pierre Ferrand.

The Sidecar is between two of the big two cognac brands, Hennessy and Rémy Martin, with Pierre Ferrand in a close third.

The smaller cognac brand is preferred among our polled bars for the Brandy Julep. The Sazerac here is the cognac, not whisk(e)y variety and Pierre Ferrand is the overwhelming choice.

In 24% of polled bars they use the brand for the leg-wobbler, with 14% opting for Hennessy and 11% Rémy Martin.
