 BARDOT Brasserie at ARIA Resort & Casino will unite with A. Hardy U.S.A. for an unforgettable pairing dinner Thursday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. Hosted by ARIA Mixologist Craig Schoettler and A. Hardy U.S.A. CEO Ms. Benedicte Hardy, the event will signify the launch of Thoroughbred, a Hardy cognac blend made exclusively for ARIA. Guests in attendance will be the first to taste the limited-edition ARIA blend in addition to other unique Hardy cognacs that will be provided during the culinary experience.

Hardy Cognac Thoroughbred was commissioned by ARIA for its most discerning connoisseurs. Hardy U.S.A. aged the best eaux-de-vie, a colorless fruit brandy, from the Grande Champagne region in Paradis, the most exclusive and protected cave in the Hardy cellars. Thoroughbred is a careful blend of 20 of these cognacs crafted and distilled right after World War II. Only 29 bottles of Thoroughbred are available.

The dinner will begin and end with an exquisite cognac tasting featuring Hardy Noces de Perle, a Grande Champagne cognac aged in limousine oak a minimum of 30 years; Hardy Noces d’Or, the award-winning eau-de-vie made from 40 different Grande Champagne cognacs aged a minimum of 50 years; Hardy Noces d’Albatre “Rosebud”, a blend of small lots of cognacs collected by Armand Hardy right after the first World War; Hardy Noces de Diamant, a Grande Champagne cognac aged in limousine oak in the family cellars for 60 years; and Hardy Perfection Lumiere, the only unblended cognac in the world, aged for more than a century.

Throughout the experience, a champagne pairing created by ARIA Director of Wine Kim Wood will be served with each course. The dinner menu, created by BARDOT Brasserie Executive Chef Josh Smith, will feature:
