Appellation (Cru) & sol: Fins Bois
If you're looking for something truly special, then your search is over. The ABK6 Spiritu Cognac is a masterpiece that was conceived and created for the 10th La Part des Anges auction in 2016 - a now annual event held in Cognac by the BNIC. The Cognac within the bottle is an extremely old Fins Bois delight from the beginning of the last century. It comes from the Chai Paradis (Paradise Cellar) of the house of ABK6 - a place where only the most special of Cognacs are stored. Handed down through the generations, the time had come for this aged-to-perfection eaux-de-vie to be bottled.
The extraordinary decanter and holder was designed by artists, Céline Delcourt and Maria Perafan, along with the Abecassis family. It symbolises the vine rooted in exceptional soil - a reflection of the spirit of the house of ABK6 Cognac.
Spiritu means 'spirit' in Latin. Together, the sculpture, decanter, and Cognac merge to form one - inspired by nature and how she intertwines all of her creations. One of a kind - a wonderful collector's Cognac.
À propos de ABK6 Cognac
Owned by Francis Abécassis (a homonym of ABK6 when pronounced in French), ABK6 Cognac is a relatively young brand based in the Domaine de Chez Maillard near the village of Claix. The brand is known for its choice to produce single estate Cognacs, with its eaux-de-vie being carefully selected from their 220 hectares of land, specifically for their aromatic intensity and indulgence. The label has shaken up the industry by introducing a young and modern spirit to a traditional drink, without compromising on quality. The company is now one of the largest independent producers in Cognac, and also owns the brands Leyrat, Reviseur and Grands Domaines. Attention to detail is applied to every single aspect of production at ABK6, with sustainable growing methods, Charentaise distillation and precise blending. It’s no wonder the group has taken home over 60 awards in recent years.
