Cat At Night is a 12-year-old brandy made in Japan from European grapes; crafted to evoke the suppleness and mystery of a cat roaming the evening hours.
Cat At Night brandy is a collaborative effort of specialty goods retailer Felissimo and Kobe Minori Corporation, a food & beverage company based in Kobe – the city famed worldwide for delicious, melt-in-your-mouth Kobe Beef.
Exploiting that connection for all it's worth, Cat At Night brandy is made from 100% imported European wine grapes that are pot-distilled in the classic cognac-making tradition, then aged 12 years in French Limousin Oak barrels.
The ad copy suggests Cat At Night brandy is best enjoyed by adult women before they go to bed each night. Imbibing the golden liquid will help “heal the fatigue of the day” by facilitating high-quality sleep. So then, pretty much like any aged brandy, cognac or liqueur... your mileage may vary, of course.
High-end brandies and cognacs from famous labels have historically been presented as gifts to close friends and valued business associates, leaving distinguished cat-owners out in the cold, so to speak. Cat At Night brandy was designed to fill this vacant market niche, providing gift-givers with a quality Kobe Brandy dressed in luxurious cat-themed packaging.
