Spirits entrepreneur Jeff Menashe has launched Bertoux Brandy, a new collaboration with PDT’s Jeff Bell, and NoMad’s Thomas Pastuszak. The 40%-abv spirit is a blend of pot-distilled California brandies between three and seven years old that were aged in American and French oak. Bell and Pastuszak designed Bertoux as a high-quality cocktail base, and the initial launch is focused on cocktail bars and independent retailers, where it will retail for a suggested $45 a 750-ml. Bertoux, which is produced by Jeff O’Neill of O’Neill Vintners and Distillers, is distributed by Park Street in New York and California.
