A picnic with a premium twist – that’s what Courvoisier dreamed up for a select group of creatives and creators in one of Hyde Park’s most beautiful cottagecore gardens.

Acclaimed mixologist and Courvoisier Brand Ambassador George Hunter hosted a hands-on mix-up looking to challenge cognac perceptions by creating new serves that pique flavour senses. Starting with the easy-drinking Courvoisier Gala – the famed innovation from the 1950s that’s making a comeback, the refreshing cocktail is a zesty blend of Courvoisier VSOP Cognac topped with tonic and served long over ice.


Then it was time for the timeless Courvoisier VSOP French Twist, which is part Courvoisier and part Orange Curaçao or Triple Sec, syrup and lemon juice, strained fresh over cobbled or crushed ice and lengthened with club soda, garnished with lemon and raspberries. Image: The Sandton Times

Courvoisier is about focussing on what brings you joy – a combination of great company, rich conversation and beautiful environments set against the backdrop of the most joyful of music genres, Jazz. The upcoming Courvoisier events paired with refreshing daytime serves and jazz allows our fans to experience Courvoisier in a new way.
