Romée de Goriainoff: Brandy Fanatic
Romée de Goriainoff is captivated by brandy, perhaps because he was born in France, birthplace of Cognac and Calvados. With the groundbreaking Experimental Cocktail Club in Paris and, soon, London, and at Paris's Curio Parlor (all launched with his childhood friends Pierre Charles Cros and Olivier Bon), de Goriainoff is building a cocktail bar empire. The drink choices include some super-creative brandy cocktails like his version of the Sazerac, in which he replaces the usual whiskey with apple brandy.
