Miami Crowd had the chance to meet with D’USSE Cognac’s Cellar Master, Michel Casavecchia, while he was visiting Miami from Cognac, France. D’USSE Cognac is a byproduct of a partnership between Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Bacardi Limited and while Jay-Z leads global strategy for the brand, it is also Michel’s unrelenting commitment to creating D’USSE’s bold, unique flavor that has made the drink a universal sensation. So, we had the opportunity to sit down with Michel and find out exactly how we can “drink like Jay-Z and other VIPs.”
D’USSE is known for its large celebrity fan club that includes A-list names like Kevin Hart, Rihanna, Nick Jonas, Romeo Santos, and Meek Mill and was integrated into every stop of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s On the Run II tour.
Casavecchia was able to share how to prepare the perfect sidecar using Dusse Cognac.
