Bache Gabrielsen Pure and Rustic Tasting Set Cognac

Bache Gabrielsen Cognac

The Bache Gabrielsen Pure and Rustic Cognac Tasting Set is a wonderful way of trying out the four different offerings in this exciting range of 'taste explosion' cognacs.  It consists of 4 x 35cl bottles of each of these cognacs that have been produced not only to incorporate the wonderful flavours and taste sensations, but as a way of producing cognac without the traditional codes that define the age and quality (VS, VSOP, XO and so on)

Head of the cognac house, Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen says of this very untraditional way of describing cognacs, "At a time when we are again asked if you prefer an "XO Fine Champagne" or a "Vintage Borderies 1998 ", it's time to understand what defines the cognac.  It's time to talk about flavors and taste sensations".

This was the reasoning behind the Pure & Rustic range - an uninhibited approach to raw, natural, delicious cognacs that are produced and described on a particular aroma.  They have as such been given a descriptive name that allows both amateurs and cognac connoisseurs alike the opportunity to understand the complexity and delights of great quality cognac.

Bache-Gabrielsen is a medium-sized family-run cognac house with an international history. The cognac house is looking forward to its upcoming 100th anniversary, with the creation of the company in 1905. With its clean design, Bache-Gabrielsen takes an important position in the cognac market, exporting mainly to Scandinavian countries. Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, the fourth generation head of the company, is well aware that the cognac industry is undergoing changes, with the international market being heavily developed and marketing strategies refined to cater a younger, trendier consumer-base. Considering the size of the business in comparison to the big cognac houses, it is surprising to find out that it holds the market leadership in cognac sales in Norway!
