Palate: Rich and well-balanced, with more citrus - tangerine and Valencia orange - followed by a long, spiced finish.  

Description

Bache Gabrielsen XO Thomas Prestige Cognac: the Elegance of Fine Champagne

Named after the founder of Maison Bache Gabrielsen, Bache Gabrielsen XO Thomas Prestige Cognac is a Fine Champagne blend, which means it has been made exclusively with eaux-de-vie from Grande and Petite Champagne. While the XO classification indicates the youngest eaux-de-vie in the blend is at least ten years old, this is said to have been aged "for several decades" in small French oak casks. 

Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen, a young lieutenant from Norway, moved to Charente in 1903 to join his friend Peter Rustad in the Cognac business. Two years later, they took over the house A. Edmond Dupuy and gave it a new name: Rustad & Bache Gabrielsen. Thomas fully settled in the region, marrying a local woman who also worked in the Cognac industry. Peter sadly passed away suddenly in 1916, after which Thomas took over the whole business, eventually passing it to his son Réné. Today, Bache Gabrielsen is run by fourth-generation company director Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen. While keeping an eye on tradition, as an economist, Hervé also knows the importance of staying relevant in an ever-changing world. 

Bache Gabrielsen Cognac is currently distributed in the European Union, Japan, Taiwan, Russia and the USA, as well as Central and South America. Most importantly, Thomas would probably have been glad to know that the Cognac brand he founded is now the market leader in his native Norway, selling 1 million bottles per year.

Presentation of the Bottle

This well-aged XO Cognac comes in a straight-sided bottle featuring a deep punt, squared-off neck and a large wooden stopper sealed to the bottle with a wire cage. The old-fashioned label gives it a classic look, balancing nicely with the otherwise modern design. 

How to Enjoy Bache Gabrielsen XO Thomas Prestige Cognac

Perfect for rounding off a substantial meal to perfection, this is a Cognac to enjoy with friends. Pour into a tulip glass and wait a few moments to allow the aromas to fully open up before taking a sip.

About Bache Gabrielsen Cognac

Bache-Gabrielsen is a medium-sized family-run Cognac house with an international history. The company was created in 1905, and so it celebrated its 100th anniversary in the last few years. With its clean design, Cognac Bache-Gabrielsen takes an important position in the Cognac market, exporting mainly to Scandinavian countries. Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, the fourth generation head of the company, is well aware that the Cognac industry is undergoing changes, with the international market being heavily developed and marketing strategies refined to cater a younger, trendier consumer-base. Considering the size of the business in comparison to the big cognac houses, it is surprising to find out that this Norwegian Cognac brand holds the market leadership in cognac sales in Norway!
