Blending Brandy and Benedictine is nothing new. This combination has been a classic since the beginning of B&B Liqueur. B&B blends fine cognac, a variety of brandy, with Benedictine. That mingling of spirits became an instant sensation in the cocktail world. However, blend Brandy and Benedictine a little differently and a burst of something beautiful flows to the forefront. A spark of happiness springs forth on the tongue.
