News from Bache-Gabrielsen and the world of cognac

Bache-Gabrielsen is widening its horizons

Beyond its cognac brands, Maison Bache-Gabrielsen develops a range of spirits under the brand name «DISTILLATIONS by Bache-Gabrielsen». The opportunity to showcase its new visual identity as a «Révélateur de Spiritueux».

The expertise acquired by the Trading House, more than a century old, thanks to its know-how in cognac, gives it a legitimacy in the world of spirits. Fine selection of eaux-de-vie, appropriate ageing, and tailor-made blends, are already the key words of the Maison, which has been working with Jean-Philippe Bergier, his Cellar Master for more than twenty-five years.

With the DISTILLATIONS range, Maison Bache-Gabrielsen wants to reveal spirits of all origins, bringing a touch of know-how patiently sustained.

Cognac was already given a new dimension by the creation of «AMERICAN OAK», the first cognac ever aged in American oak casks, with new wood imported from Tennessee and casks made from a local Cognac cooperage.

It is those same casks, but having already contained the cognac Bache-Gabrielsen AMERICAN OAK, which partially aged the WHISKY American Oak, first opus of the range DISTILLATIONS. This series limited to 1500 bottles offers roundness, richness and extreme freshness, which, coupled with the notes of wood, reveal the singularity of this elegant blend. This whisky will be introduced at VINEXPO Bordeaux, on the new stand of Maison Bache-Gabrielsen (HALL 1 – E241).

In January, the RVF awarded Maison Bache-Gabrielsen “Spirit of the Year 2017”, and highlighted «the talent and audacity» that «blow a fresh breeze on the cognac region». On this occasion, Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen had already expressed the ambitions of the Maison: «Receiving this award is a great achievement which encourages us to continue innovating, to keep surprising you, the consumers, trade, to find exceptional spirits which are aged and blended in our cellars.”
