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.
The set consists of 4 x 35cl bottles, each of which has been produced in a way that incorproates both incredible flavors and taste sensations, but also by utilizing a process unique to Bache Gabrielse - that of producing Cognac without the traditional ways of defining age and quality (VS, VSOP, XO, and so on).
Head of this innovative Cognac house, Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, says of this very untraditional way of describing Cognacs,
"At a time when we are time and again asked if one prefers 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. So, to this end each Cognac has been given a descriptive name that allows both amateurs and connoisseurs alike the opportunity to understand the complexity and delights of what makes a great quality Cognac.
