« Our Cognac estates are renowned for the exceptional quality of the Cognac produced from their vineyards. I am surrounded by a top class team who pays the strictest attention to details to guarantee your pleasure when you taste our Cognacs. The production process is perfectly controlled from the vineyard through to the bottling line and provides the guarantee of complete mastery of both quality and regularity. » says Francis Abecassis.

He launched this contemporary Cognac brand in 2005 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 few years later, Elodie, now heads the business with her father.

In 2015, ABK6 celebrates its 10th Anniversary with many events and surprises. Known from the start as innovative and seducing new generations of spirits consumers, ABK6 will continue to do so by launching new unique products all year long and will organise worldwide celebrations of its anniversary.

The World Cognac Awards select, reward and promote the best Cognac taste to consumers and trade across the globe.

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.

Vendanges 2013

30 10 2013

Les vendanges viennent de s’achever sur les Domaines Francis Abecassis. Elles avaient débuté lundi 7 octobre dernier! Il faut remonter aux années 1980 pour retrouver des années aussi tardives dans la région de Cognac. Ceci à cause d’un printemps humide et froid qui a retardé la floraison de la vigne et a freiné le développement des grains de raisin.

La maturation est donc arrivée à terme début Octobre sur la plupart des parcelles et les baies se sont chargées en sucres. La récolte a donc duré  trois semaines sur les Domaines Francis Abecassis, et les quelques belles journées de ce mois Octobre nous ont offert des scènes de vendanges toujours aussi magnifiques.

Dame Jeanne 3,30 Litres : “Tradition” by Cognac ABK6

This unique “Dame-Jeanne” in blown glass was produced by the famous Verrerie Biot and contains a precious and very old Cognac, both rich and complex, to be served with the traditional glass “pipette”. From very early on, the most exquisite Cognacs have been stored in the traditional glass recipients “Dame-Jeanne” upon reaching maturity. These famous largecapacity bottles with curves protected the eaux‑de‑vie from the air and from light, in order to preserve all of their qualities. We wanted to honour this ancestral tradition by putting this Cognac ABK6 in an authentic 3,3-litre “Dame Jeanne”, from the famous Verrerie de Biot. Tradition by ABK6 is a rich, supple and generous Cognac with vast aromatic complexity. Aromas of cedar, candied fruit and honey intermingle, producing a long-lasting taste and incomparable dimension and richness. To serve Cognac ABK6, this “Dame Jeanne” comes with an old glass pipette, used daily by the cellar master.

Anniversary set of two Porcelaine decanters: Cognac Leyrat

To celebrate the plantation of the vineyards at the top of the hill on the Domaine LEYRAT 40 years ago, a collector’s edition was created, with two antique Limoges porcelain decanters: LEYRAT XO and EXTRA. In 1973, the vineyards “Combe de Cormier” were planted on the Domaine de Chez Maillard. Forty years later, we are still benefiting from the vines planted at that time. We therefore take this opportunity of the 40th anniversary to remember that anything outstanding which is allowed to mature become magnificent. This luxury wooden box containing two authentic Limoges Porcelaine decanters, reminds the authenticity of French savoir-faire. LEYRAT XO unveils spicy notes in perfect balance with rancio. Cinnamon, gingerbread and liquorice elegantly enhance this very old Cognac. LEYRAT EXTRA offers aromatic richness, finesse and exceptional elegance. Aromas of rancio, woody spices such as cinnamon, ginger and cigar box, followed by ripened fruits develop during tasting. N° 1 (of limited edition of 12)

• Abv: 40% + 45% • Content: 2 x 70 cl
