The history of the Sazerac

It is believed that the Sazerac originated in the mid-19th century at the Sazerac Coffee House in New Orleans, which was a popular meeting place for locals and visitors. The coffee house was founded in the mid-19th century by a Creole merchant named Antoine Peychaud.

Peychaud is not only associated with the Sazerac de Forge et Fils brand, known for its cognac - which was originally used as the base for the Sazerac. He is also credited with the invention of Peychaud's Bitters, another important ingredient for the cocktail.

It is believed that the Sazerac cocktail was the first cocktail to be made with bitters. It was also once considered the official cocktail of New Orleans. In 2008, the Louisiana state legislature even passed a resolution declaring the Sazerac cocktail the official cocktail of New Orleans and emphasizing its importance to the city's history and culture.

Today, the Sazerac remains a popular cocktail in the city and around the world.

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
