For visitors wanting to get a flavour for the more experimental and contemporary side of the cognac industry, there'll be sensory experiences throughout the show and cocktails served up by mixologist Tony Conigliaro and his team from Bar Luciole in Cognac, France. For the connoisseurs, there'll be exclusive access to some of the grandes dames of cognac, with special tokens giving access to a selection of super-premium old and rare bottles.

All visitors will have the chance to get up close and personal with the people who make cognac, too. Classic producers like Rémy Martin, Martell and Frapin will all be on hand to help give visitors an understanding of the passion, dedication and time that goes into the creation of one of the world's most complex spirits. And as if that's not enough, there'll be more than 150 cognacs available to try at the event.
