Grand Brulot revives a 200 plus year old French tradition where rich Coffee was blended with Cognac to create an exquisite tasting drink: The Brulôt. The legend of Café Brûlot extends back to New Orleans in the early 1800s and the infamous Jean Lafitte. Whether or not the French pirate actually created the first pairing of café and cognac is a question that may never be answered. But the legend absolutely lives in today’s after-dinner Café Brûlot tradition in the finest French Quarter restaurants.
