LADY: Cocktail of the Month

By Jo Phillips

Sauvelle was created by Olivier Carsoule and Antoine Gravouil.  They are two men who are passionate about cognac, and it was this passion that led them to create their own brand of vodka.  Pairing with their distiller Miko, they together experimented in his lab in his own home in the Cognac area of France, (where, logically enough, many cognac distillers reside). The final product is unique with regard to the intensity of its refinement, giving Sauvelle its distinct taste.  Since .Cent has monthly themes, we have decided to pair one of Sauvelle‘s cocktails with October’s theme of Lady.
