cognac classic crawl

Boston & Portland


What is the Cognac Classic Crawl?


As one of the most famous spirits the world-over, cognac was used as the centerpiece of many of the first cocktails that were introduced in the late 1800s and early 1900s—today considered “classics” and part of any bartender or enthusiast’s vocabulary.

And it is no surprise why cognac was so popular: produced from the vineyards of this European Geographical Indication in southwest France, cognac offers an unrivaled aromatic richness and diversity of styles that makes it a unique and flexible ingredient for mixology. 

This year, the Cognac Classic Crawl comes to Boston and Portland, Oregon. Explore some of the top bars in each city and experience why Cognac captivated the stirrers and shakers of the world’s first cocktail-makers.  

All ticket proceeds will be donated to local charities: Haley House (Boston) and Stone Soup (Portland).



Discover the five Boston bars that are offering their own unique takes on pre-Prohibition era drinks during the Cognac Classic Crawl.


Discover the Portland bars that will be making delicious renditions of their favorite cognac classics for the Cognac Classic Crawl in October.
