Appellation (Cru) & sol: Fins Bois
ABK6 Ice Cognac is a single estate blend that's been designed to enjoy 'on the rocks'. By choosing eaux-de-vie that specifically 'opens up' when cooled, the cellar master has created a contemporary, 'hip' way of enjoying Cognac in a way that differs from the traditional. This makes it perfect for the younger Cognac drinker - or indeed anyone who loves trying innovative ways of tasting the delights of Cognac.
It's a fresh, delicate blend that evolves as the ice melts. On the palate it delights as it gradually changes and builds in power to a fresh, lively finish. It's also a fabulous addition to your favorite cocktail. For example, try the Sazer'Ice as follows:
4,5cl ABK6 Ice Cognac
1,5cl Cane sugar syrup
1 splash of Peychaud’s Bitters
1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
Add 3 ice cubes then mix the ingredients in a shaker,
Serve in a tumbler and decorate with a slice of lemon
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.
