« 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.

COGNAC LEYRAT Glory Extra is the gem of a very unique batch of mature Cognac, distilled and aged in the property’s cellars : an amazing and outstanding Cognac  at its natural cask strength, 45° .

Glory Extra 4

c’est donc un Cognac d’exceptiojn5%/vol

A first look at COGNAC LEYRAT Glory Extra will reveal a colour of old gold. The nose has remarkable floral freshness with leafy undertones. This first impression yields to fine spice, notably cinnamon and aromas of stewed fruit and quince.

The palate is exceptional for its smoothness, packed with peach and apricot flavours and with a hint of raisin and honey in an elegant and powerful finish.

Situated on top of a chalky hill-top and perfectly orientated, this renowned LEYRAT estate of 90 hectares produces delicate and elegant Cognacs whose exceptional quality is widely recognised. Present on the world’s finest tables, Cognac Leyrat is the gastronomic flagship within the Domaines ABK6.

Cognac LEYRAT is distributed in 20 countries and is looking for more distributors.
