PM Spirits

Review: Cobrafire

Nicolas Palazzi

The team at PM Spirits in NYC has teamed up with Domaine d’Esperance in Bas Armagnac to create Cobrafire, a grape eau-de vie made from equal parts folle blanche and baco harvested in 2017. Clear, with a pleasantly weighty texture and bright white-plum flavors, it makes a fine base for drinks such as a Japanese cocktail, with orgeat and Angostura, yet it’s also smooth enough to sip on its own.
