Make a Splash With Bache Gabrielsen Aquavit and Artonic
The cellarmaster at Bache Gabrielsen has used his years of expertise with Cognac to develop this aquavit to honor the Norwegian roots of the two men who set up the House of Bache Gabrielsen. Combining two spirits in one, Bache Gabrielsen Distillations Aquavit is a multifaceted expression intended to be perfect for mixing. The first spirit in the blend, rich in caraway and fennel, has been distilled in a traditional alembic still normally used for Cognac. The second spirit, with bright floral notes of angelica, has been distilled under vacuum. Perfectly mixing these qualities, the final result offers an intensely fresh experience with complexity and a great length on the palate. Soft and well- balanced, each ingredient is allowed to bring its own personality in this harmonious blend.
Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen, a young lieutenant from Norway, moved to Charente in 1903 to join his friend Peter Rustad in the Cognac business. Two years later, they took over the house A. Edmond Dupuy and gave it a new name: Rustad & Bache Gabrielsen. Thomas fully settled in the region, marrying a local woman who also worked in the Cognac industry. Peter sadly passed away suddenly in 1916, after which Thomas took over the whole business, eventually passing it to his son Réné. Today, Bache Gabrielsen is run by fourth-generation company director Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen. While keeping an eye on tradition, as an economist, Hervé also knows the importance of staying relevant in an ever-changing world. Bache Gabrielsen spirits are currently distributed in the European Union, Japan, Taiwan, Russia and the USA, as well as Central and South America.
