Last night in London kilts and headdresses collided as two very distinct worlds united. It’s hard to imagine there has ever been a more amusingly incongruous marriage than Scotland and Brazil. Certainly the marketing minds behind Ballantine’s Brasil have been having fun with the idea. The launch's accompanying cocktail creations include the Highland Samba and the Glen Coco.
D’Ussé (pronounced dew-say) VSOP spends at least four and a half years in French oak.
The product is to launch in New York in June and will roll out across the US by September.
The cognac is available in 750ml, with a suggested retail price of $44.99.
It is made in Chateau de Cognac, France, which Bacardi claims has "unique dry and humid cellars".
