ABK6 Ice Cognac is a sumptuous single estate blend, from the Fins Bois cru - produced to be enjoyed over ice.

This makes it perfect for the younger Cognac drinker - or indeed anyone who loves trying fresh new ways of tasting the delights of Cognac.
With a presence in Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois regions, the ABK6 estate boasts prime location, which reaps the benefits of the rich chalky soils and perfect conditions for growing exceptional eaux-de-vie.

Presentation of the bottle
Dressed in an opaque bottle with frosted glass, its presentation embodies the product's overall aesthetic and theme of “ice”. With a tall neck and thick set glass, golden foiling and floral illustrations finish the design beautifully. A Cognac that is sure to attract attention when positioned on display.
How to enjoy
Designed to be enjoyed on the rocks, ABK6 Ice is a fresh, delicate blend that evolves as the ice melts. On the palate it delights as the Cognac gradually develops, building in power to a fresh, lively finish. This blend also serves well as a tantalizing 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 garnish with a slice of lemon.
About 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.
