ABK6 VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac
A magnificently complex Cognac, ABK6 VSOP Grand Champagne offers an experience of finesse and elegance from the moment it touches your lips. Produced exclusively with eaux-de-vie selected from the Grande Champagne, premier cru - it goes without saying that it’s a Cognac quite literally dripping in splendour. With such a fabulous array of flavors, it stands proud as an offering truly emblematic of the sought-after soils from which it was produced. Having aged for at least four years in oak casks, it presents a fresh and spicy blend that can be served up in many different ways.
Founded by Francis Abécassis, ABK6 is a contemporary company deeply rooted in history. Dating back over 200 years, the estate boasts over 230 hectares within the Cognac region. Whilst an age-old process is used to create the classic Cognac, modernising the traditional beverage has become the focus over the past ten years. Every inch of the production process, including grape growing, winemaking, distillation, maturation, blending, bottling and labelling, has had a keen eye cast over it. ABK6 guarantees today’s high standard of excellence at every step of the Cognac journey.

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.
