What Are Some Good Ways to Drink Remy Martin?

By Alexander Portnoy

Remy Martin is a cognac distilled from white champagne grapes in France. Cognac is a brandy that must be grown, distilled and aged in Cognac, France, or one of its six surrounding viticultural (wine-growing) areas. The region's unique chalky soil, climate and centuries of distilling experience, make cognac unique among brandies. Cognac can be enjoyed alone as an aperitif, with food, or mixed into cocktails.

Remy Martin is a popular brand of cognac.

With Food

Chocolates and Remy Martin

Sip iced Remy Martin with smoked salmon or sushi. Sample Remy neat with fruit, such as peaches, apricots or dried apples. Enjoy your dessert with a snifter of cognac. Desserts that incorporate chocolate or cinnamon pair with Remy especially well.
