Sidney Frank Importing is launching a new Cognac in the US.

The company said yesterday (1 August) that it will complement JC Cognac VSOP with the addition of two flavoured Cognacs - JC Apple VSOP and JC Jasmin VSOP. All three will be available nationwide from this month in 50ml, 200ml, 375ml and 750ml sizes.

"We have been working on this product for a number of years now, and we know we have come up with the perfect combination of taste and elegance," said Lee Einsidler, CEO of Sidney Frank Importing. "JC is a complete package."

The nationwide rollout follows a trialling of the range in Illinois earlier this year. "The response has been tremendous," Einsidler said. "Retailers have already put in their second and third orders."

The JC range - JC stands for Jacques Cardin - will join Michael Collins Irish Whiskey in Sidney Frank's stable. The whiskey, launched in the US late last year, is made by Cooley Distillery.
