The single estate cognac producer Domaines Francis Abécassis is present at Vinexpo Paris having won “producer of the year”, “world’s best Cognac” and “Best XO” awards.
Reflecting the quality of its production, the “Producer of the Year” award came at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London 2019. Meanwhile, the ABK6 XO Renaissance cognac secured medals for World’s Best Cognac and Best XO at the World Cognac Awards in 2019, among other awards.
There are four cognac brands, Leyrat, Riviseur, Grand Domaines and ABK6, which is a play on the family name and the signature cognac. Domaines Francis Abécassis also produces Ekiss vodka. ABK6 is the signature product, for which the cellar master has chosen the oldest and most emblematic eaux de vie from their estates.
ABK6, which is available in more than 30 countries, is described as “aromatic and intense” with a lightness of aroma. It is presented in a slender bottle with square shoulders in order, the company says, to affirm its modernity, while respecting the tradition of the cognac.
ABK6 XO Renaissance is an old gold mahogany in colour and has a rich aroma of soft spices, liquorice, orange peel and dried figs. The “exceptional, well-balanced taste” is a combination of flavours, including hazelnut, walnut, cedar wood and candied fruits.
