Drinks duo Aidy Smith and Helena Nicklin return to our screens this May for the third series of their award-winning Amazon Prime travel show, The Three Drinkers in Cognac, joined by special guest ‘Third Drinkers’ Eddy Temple-Morris and Eulanda Shead-Osagiede.
The Three Drinkers in Cognac follows Aidy and Helena as they embark on a cultural and gastronomic journey in and around the picturesque French region of Cognac, with an unpretentious look at the fabulous spirit of Cognac and other local delights, giving a nod to the people, places and local attractions of the region along the way. In classic Three Drinkers style, from grape to glass, they remove the misconceptions about cognac through their irreverent and entertaining on-screen approach, helping the audience discover brand new ways of enjoying this world-class spirit.
The Drinkers discover the art of cognac with famed houses such as Courvoisier and Remy Martin alongside the world famous orange liqueur of the region, Grand Marnier. They also check out local pioneering gin makers, Audemus Distillery while discovering the fascinating world of mixers, sodas and tonics with Franklin & Sons.
Throughout the series, they take a deep dive into highballs and cocktails based on occasions, discover the unique dishes of the region, try their hand at watersports, chocolate-crafting, shoe-making, beekeeping, become hotel staff and even collect botanicals from deep within the Charente wilderness for their own locally inspired gin.
Aidy and Helena have been clear on their goals to enable more diversity and equity into the world of drinks, something that is really needed. Aidy is a trailblazer for LGBTQIA+ and disability diversity representation as the only TV Presenter in the United Kingdom with Tourette Syndrome, battling the stigmas of one of the most misrepresented disabilities in the world. Helena has been well known for her stance on female empowerment within the industry, removing the perception that women only enjoy certain spirits.
This armchair series is packed with fun and memorable moments, helping viewers to create exactly what they see on screen at home while inspiring them to visit the region to see it first hand.
The Three Drinkers in Cognac will launch on 17 May 2023 on Amazon Prime in 120 countries and territories, in 9 languages.
