Led by industry icon, ms. franky marshall, who got her claim to fame as Clover Club’s top bartender is now teaching and educating members of the spirits industry about Cognac and Pineau des Charentes. While teaching our Chilled 100 Bartenders about modern bartending techniques, she spoke eloquently about the different expressions of Pineau des Charentes, pairing each with different French cuisine.
“We had an enthusiastic group of industry folx, many of them new to Pineau,” shares ms. franky.
“I was very excited to be able to show them a wide range of expressions (thirteen in total) and have them discover how well PdC works not only in cocktails but paired with food. Like I always say: #pineauyouwantsome!”
