This special award is an impressive achievement for our Single Estate Cognac brand.
Contemporary Cognac brand
ABK6 Cognac was launched by Francis Abécassis in 2006 to appeal to a younger audience than traditional cognacs. The name, spoken in French, sounds exactly like “Abécassis”. It was used by his daughters as an abbreviated sign-off in text messages and seven years later, Elodie, now aged 27, heads the business with her father.
the characteristic fruitiness of ABK6’s cognacs comes from the chalky soil and climate of the hilltop vineyards. Another difference is that the eaux-de-vie are aged for longer than other mainstream brands.
“The leitmotif is to have a very smooth quality, round, without acidity” says Christian Guérin, Master Cellar. “We always want to keep the fruitiness and other characteristics of the single estate. For the whole range, it is important that it is a smooth and easy-to-drink cognac"
ABK6 VSOP : Tasting Review
According to the tasting judging panel ABK6 COGNAC VSOP is extremely appealing, with an easy going style, full and rich. Driven by apple pie and cinnamon, the nose displays orange, vanilla and hazelnut aromas, which carry through onto the palate and provide an excellent finish.
