Tasting Notes

The brainchild of Jeff Bell (PDT) and Thomas Pastuszak (The NoMad), Bertoux is structured on the French classics, including the heavy use of the Colombard grape variety, with a distinctively American penchant for cocktails blended into the structure and flavor profile of the brandy. Created from 3yr-7yr old pot-distilled brandies that are aged in a combination of French and American Oak casks, the spirit is forward, primary, full flavored and well balanced all at once. If that doesn't fit the bill for a perfect all-purpose mixing spirit than we don't know what will.

Staff Pick Notes

Do you have cocktails including brandy in mind? Stop here. This was developed to be used for this purpose! Soft, round and rich aromas of fruit, caramel spice, pastry, and an intense delivery via proper A.B.V. However this can also be consumed in the glass straight with a cigar perhaps, to be a bit old fashioned. I don't like trends or rules.


Astor's Glossary of Terms


California makes more wine than any other state in the United States. Not only does the state grow a variety of noble grape varieties like Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, there are also plantings of lesser-known varieties such as Nebbiolo, Roussanne and Mourvèdre to name just a few.
